About MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Study Abroad

One of the broadest engineering disciplines, electrical and electronic engineering uses cutting-edge technology to address some of the major concerns of the modern world. There is growing demand for skilled graduates to work in industries such as consumer electronics, alternative energy and transport, medical engineering and communications.

This course will allow you to spend your third year studying abroad at an English-speaking partner university. Entry is by transfer from year two of the MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering, subject to satisfactory performance. This course provides full accreditation for the qualification of Chartered Engineer.

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

You will spend your third year abroad following a similar curriculum to the one taught in Bristol. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad.

In your fourth year you will have a choice of optional units and individual project topics, meaning you can focus on anything from electrical power systems to electronic communications.

Through our close collaboration with industry you will benefit from excellent employment prospects. Recent graduate employers include Intel, BBC, Dyson, Jaguar Land Rover, Siemens, Hewlett-Packard, EDF Energy and many others.
