2023 electronic engineering trends that you need to know about

02/07/2022

The field of electronic engineering is constantly evolving. As new technologies are developed and older technologies become obsolete, the landscape of electronic engineering changes. Let’s look at some of the trends we can expect to see as we head into 2023 and find out how graduates and current employees can enhance their career progression with an MSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Bolton.

The Internet of things (IoT) 

The IoT is one of the hottest topics in electronic engineering right now. IoT refers to the interconnectedness of physical devices and objects that can collect and exchange data. This interconnectivity is made possible by sensors and other electronics embedded in these devices.  

IoT is changing the way we live and work. For example, there are now IoT-enabled thermostats that can adjust the temperature automatically based on your daily schedule. There are also IoT-enabled security systems that can send you alerts if someone breaks into your home. And there are even IoT-enabled vehicles that can share data with other vehicles on the road to avoid accidents. 
 
We expect that the number of devices connected to the internet will continue to grow rapidly over the next few years. This increase will necessitate the development of new and innovative ways to manage all this data.  

5G Technology  

5G is the next generation of wireless technology that offers faster speeds and more reliable connections than previous generations. 5G is already being rolled out in many parts of the world, and it is expected to be widely available by 2023.  

This new wireless standard will have a major impact on electronic engineering. 5G will enable new applications that were not possible with previous generations of wireless technology. For example, 5G will enable Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality experiences to be streamed wirelessly, without any lag time. 5G will also enable smarter cities, where various municipal services are connected and monitored in real-time. 

Move to Miniaturisation 

One of the biggest trends in electronic engineering is the move towards miniaturisation. As semiconductor technology continues to advance, engineers can pack more and more components into smaller and smaller spaces. This trend is leading to the development of ever-more compact electronic devices, such as mobile phones, wearable computers, and implantable medical devices. 

The Rise of Electric Vehicles 
 
Electric vehicles (EVs) are becoming increasingly popular, with many major automakers investing in the technology. EVs offer several advantages over traditional fuel-powered vehicles, including lower emissions, lower operating costs, and improved performance. As battery technology continues to improve, it's likely that EVs will become even more commonplace in the years to come.
