Electrical and electronic engineering and robotics
We have a strong tradition in teaching and research and are very proud of the support we offer to our students. 

Our facilities are world class, with bespoke laboratory and workshops where our students put their learning into practice and our satisfaction rates are among the highest in the UK. 

A wide range of excellent career opportunities are available to our graduates. 

Undergraduate courses

BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Full-time)

Do you have the ambition to develop the electrical power systems and renewable energies of tomorrow? Whether focused on embedded microcontrollers, power converters, or high frequency communications, you’ll be developing your understanding of the high-level aspects of electronics on the BEng course.

BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Full-time)

Do you want to take up the challenge of integrating smarter devices into more efficient systems, that do more and use less energy? On this broad-based, practical course, you may be looking at new style domestic appliances for 'smart' houses one week, and remote actuation of renewable energy plants the next.

MEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Full-time)

Do you want to lead society towards a more energy-efficient future, enhance your business acumen, and further develop your technical and design ability? The MEng course develops your communication and entrepreneurial skills, and prepares you for a range of high-end careers in electrical and electronic engineering.

BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year (Full-time)

Develop a solid grounding in electronic and electrical engineering, and set yourself up for success. This new four year degree route (incorporating a foundation year) covers applied mathematics, physics and electronic engineering. Successful completion of the foundation year enables you to progress onto Year 1 of any of our electronic engineering or robotics degrees.

BEng (Hons) Robotics (Full-time)

Whether you are interested in mechatronics, artificial intelligence or the possibilities for biosensors, the BEng Robotics will encourage you to push your limits. Our emphasis on high level robotics, including mobile and humanoid automation, and our focus on the electronics and hardware that support industrial and service robotics is complemented by the hands-on approach you'll develop in our specialist laboratories.

BSc (Hons) Robotics (Full-time)

Want to play your part in the rapidly advancing field of robotics? Fascinated by artificial intelligence and the innovations that will underpin the development of tomorrow’s robots? This course combines theory with lots of hands-on, practical laboratory sessions designing and building motors and robots.

MEng (Hons) Robotics (Full-time)

Taking BEng (Hons) Robotics to the next level, this MEng course digs deeper into the robotic technologies that are shaping today and tomorrow. Providing an extra year of insight and training, your learning will be informed by robotics research pushing boundaries worldwide led by our very own teaching staff.

BEng (Hons) Robotics with Foundation Year (Full-time)

Develop a solid grounding in robotics and electronics, and set yourself up for success. This four year degree route (incorporating a foundation year) covers applied mathematics, physics and electronic engineering and successful completion allows you to progress to any of our degrees in robotics or electronic engineering.

Electronics and robotics research

The degrees are strongly informed by our research in electronics and robotics.

Our robotics researchers work with world-renowned institutions.
