About MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering

This programme provides full accreditation for the qualification of Chartered Engineer. Its first two years are common with the BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and transfer on to the BEng is possible up to the end of the second year.  Progression on the MEng is subject to satisfactory end-of-year performance.

Years one and two offer a grounding in mathematics, computing, analogue and digital electronics, communications, electromagnetics, power electronics and control. 

In the third and fourth years you choose from a range option courses and individual project topics, allowing you to focus on anything from electrical power systems to electronic communications.
