Electronic Engineering

Electronic Engineering


From smart phones to satellites, learn how Electronic Engineers play a pivotal role in the design and manufacture of a vast range of products and systems.

A remarkable combination of scientific and technical innovations means that electronic engineers are central to the design and manufacture of a vast range of products and systems. Our research-led Electronic Engineering degrees draw in experience from across disciplines to provide skills that are aligned with best commercial practices and much sought after by employers.

In the first year, and into the second, students will follow a multidisciplinary route into engineering, with modules covering the core areas of the subject including electronic engineering topics. Specialisation starts in term two of the second year, and Electronic Engineering students follow the same degree programme as those on the Electrical & Electronic Engineering courses until the end of the second year. Third and fourth year modules reflect our key research areas including communications, embedded systems, power electronics, ASICs and silicon-based smart sensors. Practical work in 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 electronic engineering.

  • BEng Electronic Engineering (H610)
  • MEng Electronic Engineering (H612)

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:

BEng Electronic Engineering 2019

MEng Electronic Engineering 2019

BEng Electronic Engineering 2020

MEng Electronic Engineering 2020

Applications are made through UCAS. Further information and guidance about the admissions process is available 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.

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.

Intercalated degrees

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).

Tuition fees

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.

Electronic Engineering graduates are well placed to contribute within a variety of sectors in addition to electronic engineering, such as design and production, energy, transport, the built environment, information and communications. Our Industrial Advisory Panel supports our aim to provide you with the skills and knowledge required to succeed in industry when you graduate.

 I worked on a robot arm for my third-year project, and it is the most fascinating thing I have ever done. It's really rewarding to make something on my own and then see it working. Robotics is an expanding industry and it's great to be a part of it.
