Course Overview

To be able to cope with technological advances and complexities of industrial systems, graduates need to understand electrical, electronics and automation engineering along with good communication skills, health and safety issues.

Graduates can acquire and maintain a wide range of engineering products and processes. It aims to meet the increasing demand for technicians with cross-disciplinary skills, particularly in the field of control systems, electrical machines, networks, power systems and instrumentation.

Career Prospects

BSc (Hons) in Electrical Engineering & Automation is a degree that can help you to become anything from an electrician to a designer of electrical systems for cars, ships or spaceships, and any device or product that runs on electricity.
Successful students will be involved in creating, testing, securing and implementing all the elements of an electrical plant (such as switchgear, transformers, motors, cables, generators) and improving electric power generation. They can also be responsible for creating and operating industrial equipment such as boilers, turbines, generators, diesel, pumps, condensers, compressors, pressure vessels. Sometimes, electrical engineers get involved in the initial processes of designing power system facilities.

Teaching Methods

Practical and experimental skills are developed through project work and laboratory exercises. Design skills are developed through course work exercises supported by the use of the relevant computational packages. Practical skills are tested and assessed throughout the programme using a combination of coursework assignments, design studies, laboratory logbooks and project reports and/or papers.
