Electronic Engineering Reskilling: Top Industries to Work In

Thinking of advancing your skills in electronical engineering with a master’s degree at the University of Bolton? We offer outstanding facilities and take a student-centred approach to teaching, ensuring we are flexible to individual needs and career goals.

Our MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering course can open up a world of opportunity and career options. Here are just a handful of the top industries you can enter once you reskill:

Robotics

Engineering in electronics will have a huge role to play in the creation and maintenance of robots and Artificial Intelligence (AI) machinery. As the application of automated devices grows, there we will be great job prospects in this sector.

Healthcare

Another important area of focus with lots of electrical engineering degree job opportunities is healthcare. Some ways that electronics has already changed the medical field include wireless mechatronics, wearable devices, and hospital communication tools such as personal digital assistants (PDAs) and tablets.

Manufacturing

Electronics within the manufacturing space is fast-paced and exciting, with many organisations undergoing digital transformation. The move from legacy systems to smart technology means that there will be plenty of chances for project leadership and progression.

Energy

One of the most important electrical engineering industries to mention is energy, particularly the field of green energy. This sector is evolving quickly, with challenger companies creating a consumer shift away from the ‘Big Six’ (British Gas, E. ON, Scottish and Southern Energy, npower, EDF Energy and ScottishPower). The rise of competition opens up job opportunities across the country, and there are now over 60 energy suppliers taking up the market share.

These are just some of the electrical engineering industries that our course can prepare you for. At the University of Bolton, we put our students’ needs first. That’s why we take a flexible approach to teaching, tailoring courses to support your personal and professional development.

Not only do we rank in the Top 5 for Teaching Quality across the whole of the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide in 2021 and 2020), but we’ve also been named in the Top 50 UK Universities in The Guardian University League Tables 2020. And we’ve also been voted No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for three consecutive years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019).

There’s nowhere better to reskill than the University of Bolton. Find out how to enrol by heading to our MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering course page.
