This course delivers strong academic content conveyed with a factual focus, with the aim of preparing you to take on the challenges present in the many fields of engineering and science which employ electrical and electronic engineering graduates.
Electrical and electronic engineers (EEE) design, develop and implement a multiplicity of systems associated with electrical and electronic engineering. On the electrical side, they could be involved in the generation, transmission and control of electrical energy or machine design and the implementation power drive systems which links to power electronic engineering.
EEE engineers are hugely involved in the expanding world of electrical vehicle design and make enormous contributions in terms of technological innovation and advancement in a range of other specialised fields; for example, aerospace systems, civil engineering in projects such as high-speed train design and development.
At Coventry University, we believe that studying engineering should be so much more than acquiring theory and passing examinations. Our Activity-Led Learning (ALL) approach aims to enable you to develop your skills and knowledge by working on real-life problems and projects, many commissioned by our industry partners.
Designed to meet the Engineering Council UK-SPEC standard, the course curriculum covers the essential principles of electrical and electronic engineering. It aims to develop the advanced skills needed by today’s graduates to develop high quality solutions in electrical and electronic engineering. Successful completion of this course provides a solid foundation from which to commence a career in electrical and electronic engineering.

- Attend expert guest lectures (subject to availability)
- We currently have collaborative links with universities around the world, providing opportunities for student exchanges
- Our Faculty Research Centres with a strong portfolio of research in wireless sensors, pervasive computing, distributed computer systems, digital forensics, computer security, virtual reality, aerodynamics and electrical energy
- Study in our contemporary engineering and computing buildings with their extensive facilities and purpose-built laboratories and studio suites that enable emulation of embedded microprocessors, evaluation of communication system design and performance, design and simulation of analogue and digital electronic systems, power machines laboratory
Why choose this course?
From the outset, we place an emphasis on innovation, design and development to enrich your technical and transferrable skills. You’ll have access to the latest technologies in the fields of electrical and electronic engineering in our well-equipped micro-electronics laboratories, power laboratory and dedicated project laboratory.
We enjoy high levels of student satisfaction for BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering; students regularly praise the course and the enthusiasm of our lecturers. You’ll be taught by staff with substantial research experience and expertise in areas such as: photovoltaics; semiconductor devices modelling, simulation, design and fabrication; electromagnetics; iron core saturation; control theory and applications; wireless sensors and embedded micro-electronics. This informs your teaching, keeping you abreast of new developments and issues, whilst providing opportunities to partner staff on research projects.
How you’ll learn
Actual teaching contact hours will vary depending on the level of study and the requirements of a particular semester. In a typical week your time will be divided amongst personal tutorial and small group teaching; medium group teaching (for example seminars, tutorial sessions, lab sessions and workshops); and large group teaching (lectures).
In addition, you will be expected to undertake significant self-directed study each week, depending on the demands of individual modules. The number of contact hours may vary from semester to semester, however, on average, it is likely to be around 18 contact hours per week in the first and second years, dropping to around 16 contact hours per week in the final year as you become a more independent learner.
Course curricular will be assessed using a variety of methods depending upon the nature of each module. Assessment methods include formal examinations, coursework, tests, portfolio, practical or project work, group work, demonstrations, presentations, and posters.
The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes.
On successful completion, you will have comprehension of:
- Scientific principles and methodologies relevant to electrical & electronic engineering.
- Mathematical and quantitative methods used in engineering analysis and design.
- Engineering project management including ethics, finance, risk, health and safety, and similar issues.
- The wider multidisciplinary context of engineering, incorporating social, economic, and environmental issues.
On successful completion, you will have expertise in:
- Solving technical and management problems involving uncertainty.
- Design of innovative products and systems employing recognised methodologies.
- Planning and executing research-oriented project work.
- Selecting and apply appropriate components, materials, and manufacturing processes.
- Planning and executing practical work involving experimentation, data collection, prototype construction, testing and specialised instrumentation.
- Use of specialised software tools and information technology equipment.
- Accessing and evaluating information sources including technical literature, standards, and codes of practice.
International experience opportunities
Electrical and electronic engineering is applied throughout the world and, as such, we aim to adopt a global perspective within our teaching. During the course you may have the opportunity to engage on an OIL project or to spend a period abroad for part of your studies. This may be through an organised exchange programme or faculty-funded projects that aim to support national development themes.
