BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year
The initial year of BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year offers an excellent grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, electronics, and mathematics. It’s designed to prepare you for degree-level study. During this first year, you’ll explore introductory concepts that encompass various engineering subjects, including mechanics, mathematics, and electrical/electronic engineering. These will prepare you for the ever-increasing cross-disciplinary nature of engineering.
The rapid growth of the technology sector has seen an increased demand for creative, skilled engineers both nationally and internationally. Many global electronics organisations maintain research and development facilities within the UK and Europe. Engineers based in the UK can also be posted overseas to work on projects. This 4-year degree program is delivered in partnership with the University of Bolton and will give you the engineering-related knowledge and practical skills needed for a professional career in engineering.
Alongside developing your skillset, we will help you build lifelong learning skills so that you can reflect on, articulate, and transfer them to everyday life in order to maximise your success. You will also be able to choose from several optional modules in your final year, which include renewable energies and advanced embedded systems, amongst others.
Why should I complete the BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year
The BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year degree will provide you with excellent capabilities to pursue a successful career within engineering. Employers want graduates who are not just academically qualified but are also work-ready with professional skills in management and leadership.
On completion of this course, you will have gained a host of intellectual and critical thinking skills such as applying engineering principles to critically analyse key engineering processes. After graduating, you can progress into a career in many fields including advance manufacturing, product design, bio medical engineering, or artificial intelligence, among many others. You may also choose to study a Master’s degree.
