Electronic and Electrical Engineering
BEng/MEng (Hons) Single
Electrical and Electronic Engineers have the minds and imaginations to design and develop the technology systems that underpin our everyday lives. There is hardly any aspect of the modern world that doesn’t rely on the skills of the electrical and electronic engineer, including: power and energy systems, communications, transport, healthcare, defence and entertainment.
Our courses will help you meet the challenge of finding technical solutions for a new generation of high-performance products and services.
Our three-year BEng and four-year MEng degrees will give you a balance of theoretical and practical skills that will allow you to develop a career at the forefront of the constant challenge to improve technology. Both courses will give you the creative thinking to design a new product or system, the analytical tools to achieve your design goals, the ability to solve problems, and the teamwork needed to launch an exciting and rewarding career.
The modules given below are the latest example of the curriculum available on this degree programme. Please note that programme structures and individual modules are subject to change from time to time as part of the University’s commitment to curriculum enhancement.
Our Engineering courses share to a considerable extent common modules during the first and second years and the modules that you will choose in Years 3 and 4 will define which degrees you will specialise in.
In Year 1, you will study modules such as:
Year 2 will build on the knowledge you gained in Year 1 and focus on topics at a greater depth including:
In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to undertake a year’s work placement or else carry straight on with your course, where emphasis will be placed on areas that include:
Students following the four-year MEng programme will complete a major, industry-based team project alongside specialist modules such as:
Please note that modules may change from year to year.
Assessment will be by examination and through coursework. This will include lab work assignments, presentations, reports, essays and projects.
You will learn through a combination of lectures, seminars and specialist laboratory work at our Thornton Science Park, which is a specifically designed venue for University of Chester undergraduate and postgraduate engineers and industrial and commercial business partners.
A degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering opens a world of opportunity. In addition to the technical skills you will need to launch an exciting career in engineering, you will also gain valuable transferable skills which are sought after in professional jobs such as IT, finance, management and teaching.
Our courses will provide you with the opportunity to supplement your academic learning with practical hands-on work experience so that your CV can really stand out from the crowd.
There is also an opportunity to study at postgraduate level at Chester.
