Think of all the advances in technology over the years, from games consoles and smart phones to drones and self-driving cars. The role of electronic engineers in the future will be crucial as we become increasingly reliant on faster, more intelligent technologies.



The difference between this course and our BEng (Hons) route is that you will specialise in more advanced topics. Also, on successful completion of the course, you’ll meet the full educational requirements of the IET for CEng (Chartered Engineer) status. You'll also meet the European Framework Standards for engineering accreditation (EUR-ACE).

On this course you can:

  • Apply your skills to real-life practical problems as part of the department’s partnership scheme with charities, local and global organisations
  • Experiment with our range of control applications – from helicopter development kits to walking robots
  • Put learning into practice by doing a paid work placement, either in the UK or overseas

This MEng course has been accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), meeting the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).
Successfully completing this MEng course will allow you to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status upon graduation.

Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:

  • professional electronics
  • design
  • research and development
  • product manufacture
  • project management
