Electrical and Electronic
Develop specialist knowledge of electrical and electronic engineering devices, processes and systems.
Our Electrical & Electronic Engineering degrees cover the scientific concepts, design and methods relating to electrical and electronic engineering products, processes and systems. For the first four terms of the degree programme students follow a multidisciplinary route into engineering, with modules covering the core areas of the subject, including electrical and electronic engineering topics. Specialisation starts in term two of the second year, with Electrical & Electronic Engineering students following the same second year degree programme as those on the Electronic Engineering course.
In third and fourth year, Electrical & Electronic Engineering students focus on power electronics, electrical machines, systems modelling and the operation and control of power systems. Modules in these areas reflect our key research areas including power electronics, communications, embedded systems and silicon-based smart sensors. Practical work in electrical and electronic engineering begins in the first year, with the third-year individual project forming a major part of the course.
Our refurbished, state-of-the-art laboratories are equipped with software and instruments to support the varied teaching activities in electrical and electronic engineering.
- BEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering (H605)
- MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering (H606)
If you aspire to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, a degree from Warwick is a great starting point. The majority of our degrees are accredited by licensed professional engineering institutions, such as the IET, IMechE and JBM and provide the academic component (in part or fully) needed for Chartered Engineer status.
Entry requirements are published on the University website:
Come and see for yourself what Warwick is all about! Our University Open Days give you the chance to visit the School of Engineering, see the facilities, meet staff and students, tour the campus and get a real feel for life at Warwick. If you apply to study at Warwick and are subsequently made an offer, you may also be invited to an Offer Holder Open Day.
We offer flexible degree programmes that enable you to experience a range of 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, you continue to study the same core modules as all other students until the end of term one, after you which you can specialise.
Students can also switch from the three-year BEng to the four-year MEng degree if academic requirements are met, and from the MEng to the BEng if they prefer to graduate earlier.
In your first year you will be taught the fundamentals of engineering, which you will build on in later years according to your interests.

We are making some exciting changes to our Engineering degrees for 2020-21 entry. The core and optional modules listed on this page are currently undergoing approval through the University’s rigorous academic processes. It is therefore very important that you check this webpage for the latest information before you apply and prior to accepting an offer.
Students may choose to spend a year in industry, research or study abroad between years two and three, or between year three and four for MEng.
Exchange year abroad
MEng students may choose to take their third year at a partner university abroad (not to be confused with an intercalated study abroad year, which adds a year to your degree duration).
Please see the University website for details of tuition fees, financial support and the cost of living.
The School of Engineering is privileged to attract high fliers and seeks to recognise and promote achievement, talent, ideas, hard work and diversity. We regularly offer a number of scholarships.
Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduates contribute to a variety of sectors and industries such as power electronics, electrical power generation, aerospace, automotive, marine engineering and the built environment. Our Industrial Advisory Panel supports our aim to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to succeed in industry when you graduate.
The Electrical and Electronic course at Warwick aims to equip you with in-depth state-of-the-art knowledge, delivered by some of the UK's leading experts in the field. Skills in this field are in high demand within the UK and internationally.
