Our undergraduate BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will provide you with the specialist knowledge and expertise required for a professional career in electrical and electronic engineering. With project-based learning in all years, including live industry-led projects, you’ll develop the transferable skills and the multi-disciplinary awareness so highly prized by the industry.
Study electrical engineering at Manchester Met and you’ll start off by getting a solid introduction to key engineering principles, before specialising in subjects such as electrical energy systems, control and automation, and electronic systems design. You’ll also learn to use advanced engineering software as you develop your analytical skills and work on more cutting-edge topics.
You can choose to study our electrical and electronic engineering course over three years or take an extra year for placement in the industry. Whichever route you take, you’ll have all the skills and understanding you need to get started on your engineering career.
This degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
This course is available with a foundation year.
Features and benefits
This degree is also available with a foundation year. This means if you have the potential to study at degree level, but you don’t meet the entry requirements, you can choose to study a foundation year which will help you prepare for entry into Year 1.
The four-year placement route gives you the opportunity to spend your third year on an industry placement boosting your employment prospects on graduation.
Tackle real challenges from the world of engineering. Every year, we invite businesses and academic colleagues to set live projects that challenge our students to devise innovative solutions to current problems. You’ll get feedback and advice directly from industry insiders – giving you the chance to find out exactly what it takes to impress a potential future employer.
Showcase your engineering and design skills in extra-curricular group projects like the Formula Student racing car competition or the Engineering For People Design Challenge.
You may be invited to publish the results of your individual and group work in the Department of Engineering Student Society’s peer-reviewed journal and to present your final project work at the department’s degree show.
Adapt your schedule to suit your needs through our drop-in workshops and laboratories.
You will have access to regular online video support, which provides additional explanation and guidance on a range of topics, from coursework and exam paper guidance to software tutorials.
This degree course shares a common first and second year with our MEng degree in electrical and electronic engineering and a common first year with our MEng and BEng degrees in mechanical engineering, so you may be able to transfer between courses.
