Electronic and electrical engineers are in demand and often earn high salaries…and there’s still time to apply for a course!
At the University of Bolton, we rank No.3 in the UK for Student Satisfaction in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Courses*, making us a great place to study if you’re interested in this subject. And students can now apply through Clearing for a September 2021 start!
We believe that electronic engineering can make the world a better place, so if this sounds like something you’d like to do, head over to the University of Bolton Clearing website to find out more.
Here are just some of the ways that you could contribute once you graduate…
The Smart Grid is the digitalisation of the electrical grid, creating two-way communications between the utility and its customers. The benefits include efficient transmission of electricity, faster restoration after power outages, reduced operations for utilities, lowered costs for customers, and better integration of renewable energy systems.
But one of the biggest advantages of the Smart Grid is being able to give consumers more control over their own energy consumption. It can provide homeowners with the information and tools they need to make better choices.
This has already been seen with energy meters, where customers can watch their consumption in real-time, and manage it day-to-day.
Automation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are on the rise, and are being harnessed in every sector. Some of the industries that are making automation a priority include Agriculture, Construction, Finance, Healthcare, and Manufacturing.
There’s massive scope for electrical engineers with the latest advancements in technology, and as an electronic engineering graduate, you’ll get the chance to contribute to this exciting field.
As well as being used in industry, there are products that are changing lives and impacting people in a positive way. For instance, driverless cars are an advancement that could become commonplace in the not-so-distant future. And electrical engineers will be pivotal in ensuring safe, effective, fit-for-purpose vehicles for the consumer market.
Electrical engineering graduates will also make the world a better place by transforming the energy sector. This sector is vital to the modern world, and the design, construction and testing of energy infrastructures is all down to engineers.
One of the main focuses is to move away from fossil fuels, giving priority to renewable energy sources. In order to make renewables more widespread and accessible to energy consumers, we must bring together scientists and power engineers, and electronic and electrical engineers. The combined effort between these groups will help the sector turn theoretical ideas into machinery to produce and distribute renewable energy to the masses.
Anyone who is passionate about carbon neutrality will find this career path to be highly rewarding, and there will be many job prospects within this sector.
The field of electrical engineering is also making contributions to healthcare. When it comes to turbocharging medicine, engineers are at the forefront of it all; building, testing and maintaining everything from mobile devices and wearable technology to exoskeletons.
Of course, there’s also everyday equipment that medical teams rely on and use on a daily basis. So an engineer’s work is never done.
When it comes to job prospects, this is a subject area that will create endless opportunities for growth and development. Engineers of every kind are in short supply, creating a great demand for these skills, far into the future.
Ready to kick start your career in this lucrative field and make the world a better place? The University of Bolton has been a Top 6 UK University for Teaching Quality in The Times Good University Guide** for three consecutive years. So there’s nowhere better to begin your journey…
