UG EEE Electronic Engineering 2020

Today, and in the future, we look to electronics to provide answers for complex problems.  Take the mobile phone: a very sophisticated computer and communications system that links to a worldwide network of antennas allowing it to connect to any other mobile or landline as well as the internet.  Or the digital camera, at the heart of which is a sophisticated electronic device containing millions of individual light level detectors. 

Modern electronics requires an understanding of fundamental analogue and digital circuits to enable the design of elements that can be connected together to make small systems, which serve as the modular blocks for bigger, more complex systems. 

We live in an information age.  Complex systems require digital signal processing (for images, audio and other signals).  Technological developments in communications include concurrent processing (to allow the manipulation of the massive amounts of data), data networking and digital communication systems for both local distribution and across the internet.

There are many reasons why we encourage students to spend a period in industry during their undergraduate degree course. Time in industry will develop your business, team-working and transferable skills - all of which are sought after by graduate employers. Industrial experience will increase your awareness of the broad range of careers on offer and guide your choice of option subjects.
