See entry requirements for full details and eligibility.
One of the broadest engineering disciplines, electrical and electronic engineering uses cutting-edge technology to address some of the major concerns of the modern world. There is growing demand for skilled graduates to work in industries such as consumer electronics, alternative energy and transport, medical engineering, and communications.
This course provides full accreditation for the qualification of Chartered Engineer.
Years one and two provide a strong grounding in mathematics, computing, analogue and digital electronics, communications, electromagnetics, power electronics and control. You will also take language classes to prepare you for your third year overseas.
You will spend your third year studying in a foreign language at a university in continental Europe, following a similar curriculum to the one taught in Bristol. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.
In your fourth year you will have a choice of optional units and individual project topics, meaning you can focus on anything from electrical power systems to electronic communications.
Through our close collaboration with industry, you will benefit from excellent employment prospects. Recent graduate employers include Intel, BBC, Dyson, Jaguar Land Rover, Siemens, Hewlett-Packard, EDF Energy and many others.
This course is accredited by the following organisations
