Overview

hp-01-tab

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 electrical and electronic engineering begins in the first year, with the third-year individual project forming a major part of the course.

Our newly refurbished, state-of-the-art laboratories are equipped with software and instruments to support the varied teaching activities in electronic engineering.

Degrees

hp-02-tab

  • 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.

Course structure

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 constantly evolving our courses to keep up with developments in engineering and requirements from industry, so it is important that you check this website regularly for the most up-to-date information on module availability.

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).
