Course Information

  • Electronic and electrical components feature in most of our everyday objects, along with heat, light and power – we need them all to live, and we need electronic and electrical engineers to make them work for us. This STEM course will help you develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to become an electronic or electrical engineer and take your first steps in your chosen career. You could end up working on new technology, or designing and creating new processes and materials that could improve everyday life and society we live in.
  • Creating, designing and managing the systems that keep society running in a sustainable manner is vital. This course aims to give you a thorough understanding of how it all works. We look at the generation, distribution, application and control of electrical energy.
  • Your studies could get you investigating some fascinating areas, including:
    • Sustainable power generation
    • Infrastructures
    • Electric motor performance
  • We’ll cover a wide range of topics. During your studies you’ll have every opportunity to explore and understand the principal aspects of electronic engineering.
  • You’ll be taught by professional engineers, many of whom have years of industry experience. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. Once you graduate, you could become registered as an Incorporate Engineer. The course could also lead on to you gaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status following further study.
  • While you’re studying at Huddersfield, you’ll also have the chance to spend a placement year working in the industry. It could help you develop your talents, and make useful contacts in the professional environment too.
  • If you achieve an average grade of 60% or more during your first two years, you might be able to move onto the integrated Master’s MEng course. You’ll study for an extra year, and have the chance to gain an even deeper understanding of the subject.
