Your electrical and electronic engineering degree from The University of Manchester will open up a world of opportunity, and the skills you develop will be sought across a wide range of industries.
For example, our graduates have gone on to forge successful careers in the design and operation of large-scale power systems and their integration with renewable energy sources; the design of electrical machines and associated power conversion systems; high voltage engineering; and oil and gas exploitation.
Alternatively, you might progress into the design of mobile and wireless communications systems; the development of real-time speech and image processing algorithms; the design of guidance and control systems for unmanned intelligent underwater, ground and aerial vehicles; or the development of microcontroller-based embedded systems and robotics.
Each year the Department hosts a careers fair, where you can meet with company representatives and discuss work experience options. These companies include Rolls-Royce, Alstom, National Grid, BP, Centrica, Jaguar Land Rover, National Instruments, Network Rail, Shell, and Siemens.
What's more, graduate with a degree from us and you'll be in demand among the top graduate employers (most targeted university in The Graduate Market in 2020 - High Fliers Research ). With a year-long industrial placement under your belt, you'll be well placed to take the next step - either into the workplace or towards further learning.
All of our courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Measurements and Control.
