Program Description

MEng/ BEng (Hons)/ BEng Extended Electrical and Electronic Engineering

University of Greenwich

It is difficult to imagine the modern world without the all-pervasive impact of electrical and electronic engineering. Arguably one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century was the transistor. This simple, tiny device directly enabled the development of the microchip. From the microchip came all the modern computers, smartphones, and advanced electronics devices. However, electrical and electronic engineering is about more than even this. All modern communication systems, from simple direct dial connections to global mobile phone networks and even interstellar radio signals, are all based on the fundamental principles you will learn on this degree programme. Likewise, control and instrumentation techniques are essential aspects of modern technology, enabling engineers to precisely measure, tune, and control systems. Sustainability, especially in the generation, distribution and use of electrical power, is a very important feature of any electrical or electronic engineer’s work. We aim to ensure that all of our graduates from this degree programme fully understand these issues, including emerging solutions such as smart grids and micro-power generation.

The first year of all of our engineering degree programmes at the University of Greenwich focuses on the understanding of engineering science fundamental principles. This approach ensures that all of our graduates experience a solid foundation of broad technical knowledge and a working understanding of all the major Engineering disciplines – an essential prerequisite for a successful career in engineering management. At the end of the 1st year, students will be invited to choose to either continue on their initial degree programme or to swap to any of the other engineering degree programmes on offer. We feel it is very important that our students are empowered to be able to choose the degree programmes that are most appropriate for their ambitions and goals and we recognize that those may change during your studies with us as you learn more about each discipline. Engineering at the University of Greenwich. Quality. Industry. Rigour.
