MSc Civil Engineering
It is difficult to imagine the modern world without the all-pervasive impact of electrical and electronic engineering. All modern communication systems, from simple direct dial connections to global mobile phone networks and even interstellar radio signals, are all based on the fundamental principles you will learn on this degree programme. Likewise, control and instrumentation techniques are essential aspects of modern technology, and smart grids, micro-power generation and sustainability, are a very important feature of any electrical or electronic engineer's work. This programme will introduce you to all aspects, from the fundamental properties of electromagnetic waves to the design of advanced communication networks. The Faculty of Engineering and Science has a total of 3000m² of specialist and integrated engineering laboratories enabling you to work with many industry-standard systems and technologies and preparing you for many career opportunities in this exciting and ever-expanding field.
The BEng degree programme is 3 years in full-time mode and meets the educational requirements for registration as an incorporated engineer (IEng). Please see MEng programmes if you are looking for CEng status without further academic study. The aims of the programme are:
To provide you with the knowledge and skills relevant to a career as a professional engineer who can work effectively with current and future electrical and electronic engineering design, development and implementation methods To support you in understanding the innovative and pioneering approaches in this field and to be able to apply them to the solution of real-world problems to develop new products and technologies To help you acquire the knowledge and skills required to perform a variety of graduate-level professional roles within electrical, electronic, control and communications engineering, including management roles.
