    Course Summary

    Many of the world’s largest industries rely on electrical and electronic engineering – not just for their products and services, but for the very infrastructure that makes them possible. This degree will prepare you for a career providing these services.

    The University of Leeds’ Electronic and Electrical Engineering program begins with the mathematics and science behind electrical and electronic engineering principles, and then moves on to more complicated skills that lie at the heart of these disciplines.

    This course can be taken as a 3-year BEng program, or a 4-year integrated BEng and MEng program.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    Years 1 and 2:

    Your first 2 years will see you come to understand the physics that underlie electrical and electronic systems, as well as the maths you need to describe and engineer those principles.

    The University of Leeds offers several Electrical and Electronic Engineering degrees, and they all share a common core curriculum for the first two years. That means a student can easily switch to a new degree type any time up to the end of year 2.

    Year 3:

    Year 3 allows you to specialise your educational journey with modules such as RF and Microwave Design and Digital Communication alongside more advanced core modules.

    Year 4 (MEng):

    If you stay on for a 4th year, your degree will be a Master’s of Engineering. You can now select from specialty modules which include renewable power generation, wireless communications systems medical electronics and more.

    The capstones will be your individual research project and dissertation, both of which can have an enormous impact on your future career.

    Learning & Teaching

    Leeds University makes heavy use of integrated learning techniques. The Electronic and Electrical Engineering program features laboratory classes and extensive project work, but also industrial visits which allow students to see the principles they are learning applied to real world situations.

    You will also have a personal academic tutor, with whom you will meet weekly with a group of 4 other students throughout your first year, and individually not less than once per semester.

    Career Possiblities

    This degree program teaches vital (and highly transferrable) skills in numeracy and analysis, industrial design, communication and team building. That means that even if students are not interested in filling any of the many vacancies directly related to the Electronic or Electrical Engineering industry, they will be quick to find a career elsewhere.

    The university’s Employability Suite provides support and advice to help you find your feet. UL Computer Science graduates have become mobile solution engineers, software engineers and developers, business system analysts, among many other roles.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    The University of Leeds’ Electronic and Electrical Engineering degree program requires you to have achieved 3 A Levels of AAA or better, one of which must be in Mathematics.

    If one or more of those A Levels is in a Science, the Practical Science Element must also be rated as passing. General Studies and Critical Thinking A Levels are excluded.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students

    International students must be fluent in written and Spoken English. That can be evidenced with an IELTS score of 6.0 overall, with no component scoring less than 5.5.

    They must also have scholastic accreditation equivalent to that required for UK and EU students. Full details on what qualifications are considered equivalent can be found here.
