Whether you opt for the three-year BEng (Hons) programme or the four-year integrated master’s MEng, our experienced staff will further your understanding of electrical and electronic engineering principles, and will also develop your design, research and project management skills.
In your third year you will focus on a substantial piece of individual research or product development work targeted to your interests, giving you the opportunity to showcase your understanding and skills.
Our dedicated facilities are divided into several specialised areas each featuring experimental equipment, such as: general electronics and assembly, digital electronics and microprocessor engineering supported by state-of-the-art measurement devices and workstations, power electronics, control systems and communications engineering, and smart grid.
Graduates are working at national and multinational companies, including Airbus UK and Cummins UK, pursuing careers in electronic product design, radio frequency design and mobile communications, signal processing, control and power electronics, electronic control systems, telecommunications, military and aeronautical electronics.
- Accreditation from the Institute of Engineering and Technology will help you start your journey towards Chartered Engineer status.
- Boost your skills with an integrated master’s. You can take this course as a three-year BEng (Hons) or a four-year MEng degree, which will further your knowledge and help prepare you for industry, with the opportunity to work on an engineering project as part of a multidisciplinary team.
- Our specialist laboratories, such as the Rohde & Schwarz embedded systems lab, National Instrument Control and Communication labs, hi-tech Smart Grid & Sustainable Energy Lab equipped with state-of-the-art Smart Grid Trainer kits, and industry-standard software packages mean you will develop your skills and knowledge in facilities typically used in the engineering sector.
- Enhance your practical and professional skills by undertaking an optional placement year. Engineering students have previously undertaken roles at companies including Network Rail, Airbus UK and Caterpillar.
- Enrich your studies and expand your cultural horizons with DMU Global, our international experience programme. Previous students have visited automotive plants in Prague and explored skyscraper engineering in New York.
- Develop your skills and meet like-minded students by joining DMU’s Electronics Club. Previous projects include capturing footage from the edge of space using a hot air balloon carrying GPS tracking, environmental monitoring equipment, a camera and data loggers.

Facilities and features
Electronic Engineering Laboratory
Electrical and electronic experimental facilities are divided into specialised areas: general electronics and assembly, embedded systems, digital electronics and microprocessor engineering, power electronics, electrical smart grids, control systems and communications engineering. Each facility is equipped with state-of-the-art experimental equipment appropriate to the corresponding areas of study and research. An additional CAD design suite shared with the Mechanical and Design programmes provides access to computing facilities with specialist electronics CAD tools including KiCAD, and LTSpice.
A specialised area incorporating a spacious radio frequency reverberation chamber and Faraday cage allows for experimentation in radio frequency engineering and electromagnetics supported by spectrum and network analysers. Our communication lab is equipped with National Instrument engineering laboratory devices that provides an active learning environment to teach digital and analogue communications topics. Our Embedded Systems lab is provisioned with state-of-the-art Rhode and Schwarz equipment for the design, development and testing of both analogue and microcontroller-based systems. Furthermore, each workstation is also equipped with embedded development boards for general 8-bit development, and motor control firmware development. Our digital design suite is equipped with 8 and 32-bit embedded microprocessor platforms together with high-speed programmable logic development environments. Power generation, transmission, distribution, conversion, drives and control are catered for in our power and control laboratories, equipped for experimentation from the component level to the systems level. The hi-tech didactic Smart Grid facility includes modules that simulate generation sources (thermal, hydroelectric and wind farm), transmission and distribution components of the electrical grid and microgrid units including small PV solar for domestic use. Control laboratories are equipped with LabVIEW based control boards along with the MATLAB and Simulink package. Industrial control units, based on the Allen Bradley MicroLogix820 controller, enable to perform a comprehensive range of PLC programming tasks using a conveyor belt/pneumatic sorting application.
Library and learning zones
On campus, the main Kimberlin Library offers a space where you can work, study and access a vast range of print materials, with computer stations, laptops, plasma screens and assistive technology also available.
As well as providing a physical space in which to work, we offer online tools to support your studies, and our extensive online collection of resources accessible from our Library website, e-books, specialised databases and electronic journals and films which can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
We will support you to confidently use a huge range of learning technologies, including Blackboard, Collaborate Ultra, DMU Replay, MS Teams, Turnitin and more. Alongside this, you can access LinkedIn Learning and learn how to use Microsoft 365, and study support software such as mind mapping and note-taking through our new Digital Student Skills Hub.
The library staff offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching, reference management and assistive technology. There is also a ‘Just Ask’ service for help and advice, live LibChat, online workshops, tutorials and drop-ins available from our Learning Services, and weekly library live chat sessions that give you the chance to ask the library teams for help.
More flexible ways to learn
We offer an equitable and inclusive approach to learning and teaching for all our students. Known as the Universal Design for Learning (UDL), our teaching approach has been recognised as sector leading. UDL means we offer a wide variety of support, facilities and technology to all students, including those with disabilities and specific learning differences.
Just one of the ways we do this is by using ‘DMU Replay’ – a technology providing all students with anytime access to audio and/or visual material of lectures. This means students can revise taught material in a way that suits them best, whether it’s replaying a recording of a class or adapting written material shared in class using specialist software.
