University of Bristol, Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering is one of the UK's premier Electrical and Electronic Engineering Departments, and is part of an internationally-distinguished, leading UK university. This renowned department offers a wide range of accredited undergraduate & postgraduate degree programmes including Bachelor's of Engineering & Master's of Engineering to suit all requirements for both UK & international students. Independent teaching-quality inspections and newspaper league-tables rate this department as one of the very best in the UK in which to study electronics.
Electrical and electronic engineers influence all areas of our lives, from silicon chips to the national grid. If you have strong skills in maths and science, and enjoy applying your knowledge creatively to some of the world’s biggest problems, then electrical and electronic engineering is a great career choice.
Electrical and electronic engineering is fundamental to the growth of society. The subject builds on mathematics and physical science. It is revolutionising Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with the introduction of smart electronics, modern control systems, electrical energy management and advanced communications.
Undergraduate Degree Programmes - Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) & Master of Engineering (MEng):
The usual degree path taken by students in this Department is a 4-year MEng degree (which meets the educational requirements of the Engineering Council), although some students opt for the 3-year BEng programmes.
- Master of Engineering (MEng) in Computer Science and Electronics
- Master of Engineering (MEng) in Computer Science and Electronics with Study Abroad
- Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Study in Continental Europe
- Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Study Abroad
- Master of Engineering (MEng) in Electronic and Communications Engineering
- Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Electronic Engineering
- Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) in Electronic and Communications Engineering
Postgraduate Degree Programmes - Master of Science (MSc) 1-Year Courses:
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering has a large postgraduate community, undertaking both taught and research-based programmes under the guidance of the Department's expert staff and researchers.
A 'postgraduate' degree programme is a further degree (i.e. where you are continuing study after already having been awarded your first degree). The Department's world leading research activities allow us to offer specialised degrees of this type, and the following postgraduate degree programmes are available:
- Master of Science (MSc) in Communication Networks and Signal Processing
- Master of Science (MSc) in Image & Video Communications and Signal Processing
- Master of Science (MSc) in Optical Communications and Signal Processing
- Master of Science (MSc) in Wireless Communication Systems and Signal Processing
An MSc or PhD by research is an extremely challenging and rewarding method of study for a higher degree. The student is expected to produce a significant contribution to the development and understanding of a specific field within Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Communications or Energy Management, and this affords an exciting opportunity to engage in leading-edge research in an internationally recognised university.
Eligibility: Applicants should hold the equivalent of a 1st or 2.1 (Hons) degree. Occasionally candidates with a different class of degree may be admitted if they can demonstrate their potential for higher degree work, e.g. by holding other qualifications, presenting published work or if they have relevant work experience. Applicants who's previous degree was not taught in English will also be required to demonstrate competence to study in English, e.g. via an IELTS test certificate.
Period of Study:
* MSc by Research: Either 1 or 2 years of full-time study.
* PhD: 2 or 3 years of full-time study.
Most postgraduate research students undertake PhD research and generally take three years to complete their study.
Higher education league tables consistently place this Department amongst the best in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the UK, in terms of the research output, but also for the excellent teaching quality provided, which is reflected in the strong employment prospects of our students.
The Department's commitment to high teaching quality is recognised by its maximum possible mark of 24/24 in the most recent Teaching Quality Assessment (TQA) by independent inspectors from HEFCE. The Department is also recognised as internationally excellent in its research activities through the RAE2008 Research Assessment Exercise with 65% of our staff falling within this category.
Bristol graduates enjoy a broad range of career opportunities. These include consumer and industrial electronics, integrated circuit design, computer architecture, software development, healthcare technology, telecommunications, gaming and software development, optical communications, quantum information, image processing, electrical energy and control, technical consultancy, finance, and management. Industry demand for electrical and electronic engineers has never been higher. Our graduates are highly sought after, with 94% securing well-paid employment within 6 months of graduation.
