Electrical and electronic engineering

Electronic engineers are producing the next generation of computers, satellites, mobile phones, wearables, distributed sensors, and energy generation and storage devices. And with our 6G Innovation Centre, Advanced Technology Institute, Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing and Surrey Space Centre, we’re at the forefront of this work.

Our electrical and electronic engineering courses open the door to careers in a range of rapidly evolving and exciting industries. According to the 2020 HESA Graduate Outcomes survey, 96 per cent of our graduates are in work or further education.

TheGuardian University Guide 2021 also ranks our electrical and electronic engineering courses 6th in the UK.
