BEng - Engineering

BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Course Overview

The BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering is designed to equip you with the essential knowledge and skills needed for a professional career in the given industry.

The BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering bachelor’s degree is validated by the University of Bolton and underpins the fundamentals of the engineering industry. One of the main aims of this program is to prepare prospective engineers for meaningful professional employment in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering sectors.

The rapid growth of the technology sector has seen an increased demand for creative, skilled engineers both nationally and internationally. Many global electronics organisations maintain research and development facilities within the UK and Europe. Engineers based in the UK can also be posted overseas to work on projects.

Once you have qualified with this degree, you will have gained the essential academic knowledge and practical skills needed to understand, use, enhance and design electrical- and electronics-based technology.

Alongside developing your engineering-related knowledge, we will help you build lifelong learning skills that you can reflect on, articulate, transfer into everyday life.

You will be assigned a dedicated student services officer who will assist you with any queries – big or small – such as travel discounts, career advice.

Why study this course?

  • The course offers ‘real world’ engineering knowledge and skills developed through a combination of theory and practical applications.
  • You can learn about cutting-edge and emerging technologies such as Smart Grids that are transforming global electricity delivery systems.
  • On completion, you will be able to demonstrate systematic knowledge such as applying engineering principles to critically analyse key processes.
  • After graduating, you can progress into a career in many fields including advance manufacturing, product design, bio medical engineering, or artificial intelligence, among many others. You may also choose to study a master’s degree.
  • This course will provide you with the confidence to explore a career in various engineering disciplines.
