We offer a wide range of undergraduate Electrical & Electronic Engineering degree programmes together with an exciting new interdisciplinary programme in Computer Science & Electronics. Independent teaching-quality inspections and newspaper league-tables (Guardian, Complete University Guide) rate the Electrical & Electronic Engineering Department as one of the very best in the UK, and the University is situated in the heart of Bristol, a vibrant and multicultural city.
The Department's extensive research activities mean that our academic staff can teach you about the very latest developments in this exciting and rapidly changing field, and that all our technical equipment is up-to-the-minute. These research activities also provide links to industry and we have an active Industrial Advisory Board to ensure that we offer an education that prepares students for employment and leadership after graduation. We are partners in the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF) and the E3 Academy. These prestigious organisations link us to a wide range of world leading companies. These companies are able to offer you high quality scholarships, paid internships and summer school opportunities.
The usual degree taken by students in this department is a 4-year MEng degree (which meets the educational requirements of the Engineering Council), although some of our Electrical and Electronic Engineering students opt for one of our 3-year BEng programmes.
The Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees are accredited by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
Our Widening Participation Strategy reflects our commitment to recruiting the applicants with the greatest academic potential – whatever their social or educational background.
