Electrical and Electronic Engineering MEng/BEng (Hons)

Coventry University

Program Overview

This course delivers strong academic content conveyed with a factual focus, with the aim of preparing you to take on the challenges present in the many fields of engineering and science which employ electrical and electronic engineering graduates.

Electrical and electronic engineers (EEE) design, develop and implement a multiplicity of systems associated with electrical and electronic engineering. On the electrical side, they could be involved in the generation, transmission and control of electrical energy or machine design and the implementation power drive systems which links to power electronic engineering.

EEE engineers are hugely involved in the expanding world of electrical vehicle design and make enormous contributions in terms of technological innovation and advancement in a range of other specialised fields; for example, aerospace systems, civil engineering in projects such as high-speed train design and development.

At Coventry University, we believe that studying engineering should be so much more than acquiring theory and passing examinations. Our Activity-Led Learning (ALL) approach aims to enable you to develop your skills and knowledge by working on real-life problems and projects, many commissioned by our industry partners.

Designed to meet the Engineering Council UK-SPEC standard, the course curriculum covers the essential principles of electrical and electronic engineering. It aims to develop the advanced skills needed by today’s graduates to develop high quality solutions in electrical and electronic engineering. Successful completion of this course provides a solid foundation from which to commence a career in electrical and electronic engineering.
