Program Description

BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The University of Warwick, School of Engineering

What will I learn?

Our new Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree will develop a specialist knowledge of electrical and electronic engineering devices, processes and systems while providing you with experience of working collaboratively across engineering disciplines.

As with the Electronic Engineering degree, you’ll learn through lectures, tutorials, example classes, face-to-face contact with academics for resolving module queries, laboratories, coursework assignments, and projects. Practical work in electrical and electronic engineering will begin in the first year with the third-year individual project forming a major part of the course. Our state-of-the-art laboratories are equipped with software and instruments to support varied teaching activities and the course significantly benefits from close links with industry.

In your first year, and into your second year, you will follow a multidisciplinary route into engineering, with modules covering the core areas of the subject, including electrical and electronic engineering topics. In the third year, there is a focused specialization in electrical and electronic engineering, which will include your individual project.

As a graduate of the BEng or MEng course, you will be well placed to contribute within a variety of sectors and industries such as power electronics, electrical power generation, aerospace, automotive and the built environment.

How will I learn?

You will participate in lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical laboratory sessions. To help you make the transition from school to university, in your first year you will meet your personal tutor each week in a group usually of five or six students to address academic issues arising from lectures. Your tutor is there to support you throughout your university life and will especially help you to reflect upon your continuing development. Engineers are always involved in interdisciplinary group work and this forms part of our courses from year one.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is through examinations and coursework. Coursework assessment can include laboratory reports, projects, essays and oral presentations.

What opportunities are there for work experience and study abroad?

You can gain industrial experience during your course via visits and project work. The School encourages students to undertake some form of industrial experience. Many students undertake internships and other work experience over the summer. Some students can take a year-long placement in industry or in a research environment.

Entry requirements

A level AAA, to include Mathematics and Physics.
You must also achieve a pass in the science practical if your science A level includes a separate practical assessment.

A levels in applied subjects and mixed portfolios Candidates are considered on an individual basis. Grades will be similar to those for candidates taking academic A and AS qualifications.

Applicants with a strong profile but without either A Level Physics or A Level Mathematics may be considered.

International Baccalaureate 38 points to include 6,6 in Mathematics and Physics. At least one of those subjects should be at Higher level.

BTECs: Applicants offering BTECs are advised to contact the Undergraduate Admissions Team for
further information prior to application

These normally exclude General Studies and Critical Thinking.

Contextual data and differential offers Warwick may make differential offers to students in a number of circumstances. These include students participating in the Realising Opportunities programme, or who meet two of the contextual data criteria. Differential offers will be one or two grades below Warwick’s standard offer (to a minimum of BBB).

Access Courses Access to HE Diploma (QAA-recognised) and in appropriate subjects considered, if offered with A level Mathematics at grade A for MEng or grade B for BEng/BSc. Distinctions are required in Access and BTEC qualifications.

Warwick International Foundation Programme (IFP) All students who successfully complete the Warwick IFP and apply to Warwick through UCAS will receive a guaranteed conditional offer for a related undergraduate programme (selected courses only). For full details of standard offers and conditions visit the IFP page.

We welcome applications from students with other internationally recognized qualifications.

What modules can I study?

Initially, all students follow the same programme covering topics which we believe are important for all engineers to understand.

By the second term of Year Two you are able to specialize in Electrical and Electronic or switch to one of the other Engineering courses (such as Automotive, Biomedical Systems, Civil, Electronic, Engineering Business Management, Mechanical, Manufacturing and Mechanical, or, Systems).

What careers can a Warwick degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering lead to?

Our graduates have gone on to work for organizations including Jaguar Land Rover, Barclays Bank, NHS Institute for Innovation, Aston Martin, Deutsche Bank.

Examples of our graduates’ job roles include: Business Systems Analyst, Graduate Civil Engineer, Aerodynamacist, Structural Engineer, Technology trader.
