BENG (HONS) Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Top-up)
Advances in electrical and electronics engineering underpin the digital revolution that started in the 1950s and continues to the present day. The University of Bolton’s BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronics Engineering is designed to prepare you for a career in this world-changing industry. We want to help you gain the essential knowledge and skills needed to understand, use, enhance and design electrical- and electronics-based technology.
We offer ‘real world’ engineering knowledge and skills developed through a combination of theory and practical applications taught in a vibrant and supportive environment. This includes our range of highly specialised modules covering areas such as electromagnetism, embedded systems, digital signal processing, power electronics and renewable energy systems. Your professional development and training are encouraged through hands-on projects, live briefs, industrial visits and work placement opportunities.
You can learn about cutting-edge and emerging technologies such as Smart Grids that are transforming global electricity delivery systems. We also place significant emphasis on the application of electronics in the form of embedded systems. These are electronic systems that can be embedded in other products that are not necessarily electronic, such as cars, medical devices and industrial systems. In this way, we aim to prepare you for careers in growth areas of the industry.
