Skills and Training

Course programme

You will study the same courses in the first three years whether you are on the BEng, BSc or MEng degree programme.

Year 1

You will take courses in electronics and electrical engineering, mathematics and computing science. You will study foundational analogue and digital electronics, and will design, simulate and test circuits in the laboratory. You will develop computer problem-solving skills applicable in any programming language.

Years 2 and 3

You will gain a thorough grounding in the hardware and software aspects of computer systems, including expertise in programming and software engineering using Java, detailed knowledge of operating systems and networking, a solid foundation in databases and experience with electronic design software. This will be combined with a working knowledge of electrical circuit theory, analogue and digital electronic system design and digital communications.

Years 4 and 5

You will have a wide choice of technical options in fourth year, choosing half your specialist topics from electronics and electrical engineering (including VLSI design and robotics) and half from computing science (including artificial intelligence, software engineering processes and network communications).

You will also gain expertise in professional aspects including economics, project organisation, environmental issues and safety.

If you are a BEng or BSc student, you will undertake a substantial individual project under one-to-one supervision.

If you are taking the MEng you will have the opportunity to take part in a multidisciplinary integrated system design project, working in teams alongside students of other engineering disciplines. In fifth year you will complete a six-month project, normally abroad, and then take further advanced technical subjects.

Our international links

You will have the opportunity to apply to study abroad. There are currently two options available: the Erasmus+ Programme and the International Exchange Programme. See Study abroad.
