Electrical engineering concerns anything that involves electrical power, from the electromagnetics of superconducting systems to the principles of power generation and transmission, and the development of more efficient and sustainable energy sources.
Energy is one of today’s biggest global challenges, with energy generation and supply, coupled with environmental factors, placing future energy needs and provision at the top of government agendas in every country.
Electrical Engineering at Southampton emphasises the fundamentals of electrical theory while acknowledging the multidisciplinary nature of the field. Our programmes are broad, based on solid physical and mathematical understanding, and will provide you with the analytical skills to design and develop the technology of tomorrow.
They offer a unique opportunity for study and research, experimentally and theoretically, across a wide range of subjects. In each year, you will be involved with design and build projects, developing confidence and the skills to deliver working prototypes. We also provide outstanding experimental laboratory facilities, especially in our high-voltage laboratory.
