    Course Summary

    The University of Sunderland’s BEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering is a great way to forge a career in the power generation and transmission, renewable energy, medical technology, aerospace or automotive industries, or indeed almost any industry or sector which relies on electrical power or electronic components to thrive. In addition, you’ll benefit from the university’s close working relationships with big names in industry as well as its wide-ranging research programs.

    As you study for your degree, you’ll gain a high level of skill not just in electrical and electronic systems engineering but also in engineering management. This will put you in an excellent position to lead teams of engineers in the office or in the field. Better still, you’ll have the opportunity to focus your learning on one or more specialties, such as machines, electrical power systems designing industrial control systems, or working with either digital or analogue electronics.

    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.
