Course Details

Covering the latest practices and theories of engineering, our BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering offers essential knowledge and skills for entry into this global profession.

The technology sector's rapid growth has seen an increased demand for creative, skilled engineers nationally and internationally. Many global electronics organisations maintain research and development facilities within the UK and Europe. Engineers based in the UK can also be posted overseas to work on projects.

As a graduate of this degree programme, you'll possess the engineering-related knowledge and practical skills needed for a professional career in engineering.

Throughout the course, we'll help you build lifelong learning skills so that you can reflect on, articulate, and transfer your skills to everyday life, maximising your success. You will also be able to choose from several optional modules in your final year, including renewable energies and advanced embedded systems.

  • This degree will provide you with excellent capabilities to pursue a successful career in engineering.
  • You'll gain an academic qualification and be work-ready with professional skills in management and leadership.
  • You'll gain a host of intellectual and critical thinking skills, such as applying engineering principles to analyse key engineering processes critically.
  • After graduating, you can progress into a career in many fields, including advanced manufacturing, product design, biomedical engineering, or artificial intelligence, among many others.
Key Features
  • We use small group and tutorial teaching, so you have the opportunity to benefit from the excellent support offered by our teaching staff.
  • Free Pre-sessional English classes are available if you need support to improve your English language skills to meet the English language requirements for your chosen course.
  • You'll benefit from dedicated student and academic support during your time at our London Academic Centre.
  • We offer Success, Character, Opportunity and Progress Enhancement (SCOPE) sessions that are designed to support your growth and enable you to develop wider thinking across your curriculum.
  • You'll be able to take advantage of our Thinking into Character (TiC) suite of educational programmes that focus on helping you to think bigger, aim higher and achieve your dreams.
  • A link tutor provides academic communication between our London Academic Centre at Regent College London and the University of Bolton's academic school so that the experience you receive as an off-campus student is equivalent to that of an on-campus student.
  • As an off-campus student, you'll also have access to the support of the University's dedicated off-campus team and resources to help make you truly feel part of the institution.
  • You'll also have access to the University's e-learning resources, an extensive e-library and the support of University librarians.

  • 96 UCAS points. We accept a full range of qualifications that carry UCAS points, including A-levels, BTECs and T levels. Please see our guide to the UCAS Tariff for examples of how to achieve these points. For most courses, we are also able to consider non-tariffable qualifications.
  • Your Level 3 subjects must include mathematics and a physical science subject; for instance, A-level Mathematics and Physics or BTEC Extended Diploma in Engineering (you should choose units in additional mathematics and analytical subjects).
  • You should also have five GCSEs at grade C or above or grade 4 to 9 (or equivalent), including English, Mathematics and Science.
  • We’ll be happy to consider your application if you have relevant industrial experience or alternative qualifications.
  • You may be required to attend an interview and/or provide a portfolio of work.
  • If English isn’t your first language, you’ll also need IELTS 6.0 with no less than 5.5 in any band (or equivalent). We also accept a range of other English language qualifications – please visit our English Language Requirements web page for more details.

Where changes are made to material information contained in this course description or a decision is taken to suspend a course between the offer of admissions and enrolment, we will inform applicants at the earliest possible opportunity and will outline the various options available to the applicant.

Electrical and electronic engineers design, build and maintain electrical control systems, electrical systems for renewable energies, electric vehicles, and industrial machinery and equipment. The rapid expansion of the technology sector over the last few decades has created a demand for those who can develop, understand and alter electrical control systems.

In addition to technical knowledge, this degree offers the opportunity to develop a range of essential employability skills that are highly transferrable to a wide range of areas beyond engineering, such as IT, finance and management. These skills include the ability to use specialist knowledge creatively and innovatively to solve problems, produce and interpret technical solutions, explain design ideas, effective communication (spoken and written), good team working skills, project and time management, and strong decision-making skills.

As a graduate of this BEng degree, you'll have the knowledge and skills needed to define your pathway to a rewarding career in electronic engineering and be qualified to pursue exciting opportunities in research and development if you wish.

What can I do with this qualification?

Industries such as electronics, IT, manufacturing, power, transport, construction, and building services employ electrical and electronic engineers. Opportunities also exist in telecommunications, research and development, and petrochemicals. With experience, you could specialise in project management, research and development or consultancy work. You could also move into senior roles in operation management or at the technical director level.

Typical employers include local authorities, the armed forces, manufacturers in all industries, power and water companies, renewable energy firms, and building services contractors. Global opportunities also exist for those willing to travel.

Another possible course of action for graduates is to pursue further study in a specialist field or research. Courses include MSc or PhD degrees in areas such as internet engineering, nanotechnology, wireless and optical communications, and telecommunications.

Alternative career options

Graduates can use this qualification as a stepping stone into a range of other careers. Some of these roles may require relevant experience and/or postgraduate study. Some possibilities include the following:

  • Management consultancy
  • Multimedia programming
  • Technical writing
  • Technical sales engineering
  • Logistics
  • Patent law and intellectual property
  • Procurement, purchasing and buying
  • Supply chain management
  • Teaching, academia and lecturing
  • Research and development

We use various teaching, learning and assessment methods to help you achieve your potential. Timetabled sessions, such as lectures, seminars and tutorials, offer you knowledge of the concepts and principles essential in engineering. We expect you to build on these in your own time through extra reading, revision and reflection on what you have learned. Open-ended projects and design, make and test activities allow you to apply the principles you've learned, bringing the concepts and practical applications together in your mind.

Regarding assessment, you can expect project or design reports, examinations, portfolios, presentations, and blogs. Some assessments will contribute to your final module mark and allow you to demonstrate that you have met the learning outcomes. In contrast, others are designed to help you identify areas that need extra attention on your part or where you need additional support from your tutors.

This programme adopts a blended learning and teaching style, including online delivery and engagement where appropriate.
