BEng in Engineering (Electronic and Electrical) (Full Time)

University College London

Bachelor Degree , Electrical And Electronic Engineering

Course Description

Electronic and electrical engineers invent and create the technology that typifies today's high-tech society, from devices and systems that monitor our health and wellbeing to global communications networks and renewable electric energy. The BEng gives a broad education in the mathematics, science and engineering that underpins this subject.

  • You will gain the analytical and problem-solving skills required for employment in engineering as well as a diverse range of fields including finance and consultancy services.

  • You will benefit from the intellectual challenge and stimulation deriving from our world-class research. You will also have access to state-of-the-art software and instruments in our extensive teaching laboratories.

  • The degree is part of an integrated programme across UCL Engineering which provides opportunities to broaden your horizons through interactions and projects with students from other engineering disciplines.
