About this course

Help develop the next generation of world-changing technology - from mobile phone and entertainment systems, to medical devices and artificial intelligence. Electronic Engineering is both a technical and creative subject that combines theory and practice. You’ll learn to solve problems by designing, building and testing new electronic systems. You'll gain all the knowledge and skills for a career as an incorporated electronic engineer.

Electronics is the study of the physical components, software and systems that bring electronic devices to life.

This 3-year course will help you develop the skills to solve real-world challenges, from sustainable energy production to cyber security. You’ll explore the components within electronic devices and how they work together, for example, to analyse data or display information on a screen.
