Key Modules

Whichever electronic engineering course you follow, you will have a wide choice of careers in mainstream electrical/electronic/microelectronic industries and in other engineering and 'high-tech' fields.

The majority of our graduates move into research, development or manufacturing companies – a choice many make when accepting sponsorship from a company – but opportunities do exist in most other professional spheres such as computing, medicine, finance, management and the media.

Recent graduates have gone on to work for companies including the BBC, Virgin Airways, Siemens and a variety of design companies.
