About this course

From low-power processors for mobile phone technology to heavy-duty power electronics for wind turbines, the design of electronic and electrical systems is challenging and requires a clear understanding of both the physics and the broader system in which it operates, necessitating teamwork and the determination to find ingenious solutions.

With advances in technology for medicine, efficiency in transportation, safety monitoring systems, surveillance, entertainment, wireless communications, manufacturing and computing, to name just a few areas, electronics and electrical engineering lead where others follow.

Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management
The programme in Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management provides graduates with a number of tools to facilitate the technical management of teams and projects.

Ties to industry
The Industrial Liaison Board includes senior representatives from important electronics and electrical engineering companies and has influenced curriculum and programme development.

Scholarships
The Electronics & Electrical Engineering students are eligible for several scholarship schemes that provide additional financial support. One scheme comprises a pool of scholarships provided by a number of companies, and the other is through the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF), of which Edinburgh is a member along with other UK universities which have a strong electronics profile. The applicants are also eligible to apply, during the year of application, for an IET Diamond Jubilee Scholarship, and can hold this in addition to other scholarships.

This course also provides an option to join in from the 2nd year onwards.

Course Modules

Year 1
Your time will usually be divided between engineering, mathematics and option courses. You study several branches of engineering, followed by the first in-depth study of your preferred subject.

For most of our programmes you can choose an option from the sciences or the arts. Chemical engineering students must take chemistry in Year 1.

Year 2
You will study your chosen branch of engineering, supported by classes in mathematics. You will begin to apply your scientific and mathematical skills to real problem solving.

Year 3
You will now be able to focus almost entirely on your chosen field of engineering. At the end of Year 3, you will have the option of completing one more year for a BEng (Hons) or studying for a further two years for an MEng (Hons).

Year 4
You will concentrate on specialist study and innovative coursework that will prepare you for your professional career. Increasingly you will spend time on individual or group design projects. These projects include working with students from other disciplines in our unique interdisciplinary design projects, initiated with support from the Royal Academy of Engineering.

MEng students will produce a substantial project that may involve working overseas or in industry.
