Electrical and electronics engineers perform a critical role in today’s modern world, advancing the technology in our homes and businesses – from heat, light and power to telecommunications and transport.
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this course partially meets the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (Further Learning) with the Engineering Council. You will have the opportunity to develop practical skills and theoretical knowledge in a range of electronics fields, including digital systems, image and signal processing, robotics and sensors, together with electrical systems such as renewable energy, smart grids, embedded microcontrollers, electrical machines and power generation.
You’ll have access to state-of-the-art facilities, placement opportunities at companies which have previously included the National Grid, GlaxoSmithKline, Severn Trent Water and Mercedes Benz, as well as an annual programme of inspiring lectures on contemporary engineering and computing topics presented by the IET and British Computer Society (BCS).
This course offers a programme of study in which course content ranges from fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering through to contemporary developments in electrical and electronic systems engineering.
It provides a balanced curriculum where you will learn a variety of programming languages and skills that will aid you after graduation. You also have the option of studying either ‘Digital Communications’ or ‘Measurement and sensor Technology’ as the optional module available to you.
Why choose this course?
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 enables you to develop your skills and knowledge by working on real-life problems and projects, many commissioned by our industry partners.
Designed to follow the Engineering Council UK-SPEC standard, the course encompasses theoretical and practical subjects within the broad area of electrical and electronic engineering as used by industries as diverse as aerospace and automotive, chemical and construction.
International experience opportunities
Electronics is an international business, so we encourage a global perspective throughout our teaching.
