Engineering remains one of the most in-demand jobs in the UK, with opportunities throughout the world for highly trained professionals. Highly trained engineers are needed to specify and design such systems and devise electronic engineering solutions for future challenges – such as electric transportation, renewable energy generation, robot systems and medical diagnostics.
The specialist topics studied on the programme aim to prepare you for a wider range of roles in related industries that rely on the technology. Possible destinations include: electrical power supply generation and distribution including renewables; transport and industrial equipment manufacturers employing electrical drives; electrical vehicles are anticipated to create an increased demand in this area; industrial measurement and monitoring systems; robotics and associated activities; and microelectronic applications.
