Electronic and Electrical Engineering Access to cutting-edge resources

Electronic and Electrical Engineering

Access to cutting-edge resources

Electrical, electronic and robotics engineers are involved in the design, development and testing of electrical, electronic and robotic systems. For electrical and electronic engineers this could include anything from driverless cars to medical scanners, while robotics engineers would create robots and robotic systems that are able to complete jobs that humans can’t.

With a wide range of career opportunities available you could work for robotics, digital technology, automotive, telecommunications, electronics consultancies and electronic equipment manufacturers.

Our close links with industry means that what you’ll learn reflects current best practice. We also work with a number of professional bodies and learned societies to ensure that you benefit from teaching, support, research and commercial activities.
