Electrical and electronics engineers perform a critical role in today’s modern world, advancing the technology which drives much of the activity in our everyday lives – from heat, light and power to telecommunications and transport.
At Coventry University, we believe that studying engineering should be so much more than just learning theory and passing examinations. Instead, our activity-led learning 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 covers the fundamental principles and develops the advanced skills to develop high quality solutions in electrical and electronic engineering, providing a solid foundation to start professional work in electronic design, control systems, communication systems and software engineering.
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.
International experience opportunities
Electronic engineering is applied throughout the world and, as such, we adopt a global perspective within our teaching. During the course, you will have the opportunity to spend a period of time 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.
The course has a number of features designed to make you more attractive to employers and help you to obtain a good graduate-level job, which helped 90% of our BEng graduates find work or continue their studies within six months of graduation (DLHE 2014/15).
