Electrical and electronic engineering

Electronic engineers are producing the next generation of computers, satellites and mobile phones. And with a £70 million+ investment in our 5G Innovation Centre, we are at the very forefront of this work. 

Our electrical and electronic engineering courses open the door to careers in a range of rapidly evolving and exciting sectors. 

  • The Guardian University Guide 2021 ranks our electrical and electronic engineering courses 6th in the UK
  • The National Student Survey (NSS) 2019 places us 8th for overall student satisfaction in Electronic and Electrical Engineering.
