H610 BEng Electronic Engineering
H612 MEng Electronic Engineering
Electronic engineers play a vital role in almost all aspects of our everyday life and are the power behind the 'information revolution' that is increasingly impacting on all our lives.
Our research-led Electronic Engineering degree draws in experience from across disciplines to provide skills that are aligned with best commercial practices and much sought after by employers. Teaching and project work reflects the School's key research areas including communications, embedded systems, power electronics, ASICs and silicon-based smart sensors.
You'll learn through lectures, tutorials, example classes, face-to-face contact with academics for resolving module queries, laboratories, coursework assignments and projects. Practical work in electronic engineering begins in the first year, with the third-year individual project forming a major part of the course. Recent individual project titles, supported by industry, include 'A Mobile Phone Based Electronic Nose' that analyses the breath of patients in local hospitals and 'Delivering Satellites to Space with Power Electronics.'
Newly refurbished, state-of-the-art laboratories are equipped with software and instruments to support the varied teaching activities in electronic engineering. .
What you'll study
We offer flexible degree programmes that enable you to experience a range of different engineering disciplines before you decide to specialise. All first year students study a general engineering programme, which is much favoured by industry. In the second year, students continue to study the same core modules as all other students until the end of term one, after which they can specialise, or continue on the general Engineering pathway. You can also switch between the three-year BEng and four-year MEng degrees if academic requirements are met.
There are nine modules in the 1st year with the option to take a language module on top.

Intercalated Year Options
Our Placements and Internships Officer will work with you to identify opportunities for year-long and/or summer internships and research opportunities, which often lead to further study and employment for our students. Options to take an intercalated year in industry, research or study abroad are reflected in your degree title, and add a year to your degree duration. MEng students may choose to take their third year at a partner university abroad.
We use a variety of teaching methods, ranging from lectures and group tutorials to small groups in laboratories. You are allocated a personal tutor, who normally stays with you throughout your time at Warwick. They will help you get the most from your studies. Computer laboratories loaded with specialist software, are open 24/7, helping you undertake work at a time to suit you.
Students are assessed by a mixture of methods that include assignments, design-orientated projects, laboratory-based course work, oral presentations and written examinations.
Our graduates work in a variety of sectors in addition to electronic engineering, such as design and production, energy, transport, the built environment, information and communications. Our Placements and Internships Officer will work with you to identify opportunities for year-long and/or summer internships and research opportunities, which often lead to further study and employment for our students.
