    Course description
    One of the challenges for the 21st Century is to reduce the level of the harmful emissions that are thought to be responsible for climate change. To achieve this, whilst at the same time maintaining our present standard of living, requires more efficient generation, distribution and use of energy. Electrical energy is 'clean' at the point of use, but care still needs to be taken in its generation and use, if harmful emissions are to be reduced.

    The efficiency of many industrial processes can be improved by more than 50% by using modern electrical machine drive systems. These drive systems utilise high-efficiency electrical machines, power electronics, digital signal processing, sensors and communications to achieve this improved efficiency. Electrical power generation from renewable sources places new demands on the power system that is used to distribute it to customers. It is in areas such as these that graduates from our Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme contribute.

    You also spend a year in industry to develop your business, teamworking and transferable skills, all of which are sought after by graduate employers. Industrial experience will increase your awareness of the broad range of careers on offer and guide your choice of option subjects. Industrial placements can also be accredited by the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) towards the training required for attaining Chartered Engineer status.

    Special features
    -There is a common first year and the opportunity to transfer between the programmes offered by the School
    -You will be allocated a Personal Tutor
