Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering
Strong links with industry see our graduates gain employment with global companies pioneering new developments in electronic systems, techniques and devices.
The rapid worldwide expansion and development of electronic systems, techniques and products requires engineers to pioneer new developments, undertake design, supervise production, and to install and operate equipment. Electronics is an essential part of the products that impact on our everyday life, from the usefulness of the smartphone to the reliability of the power from household sockets.
Our applications-based courses cover the areas of electronics, communications, embedded system design and electrical power technology. They provide the theoretical basis, design methods and skills for a broad-based education in these areas.
Demand for electrical, electronic and computer engineers is high and our strong links with industry see our graduates gain employment in a wide range of roles with companies in Scotland, the UK and across the globe.
