How to apply Come to an Open Day

Introduction

Develop essential engineering knowledge and skills, and prepare for a successful career in a fast-moving industry, with our four-year Electronic and Electrical Engineering degree in Chelmsford.

Electronic and electrical engineers are at the forefront of the challenge to connect our world; to design and build more efficient and affordable technology; to provide a robust and green energy network; and to help us live better, healthier, smarter and more sustainably.

It’s a discipline which impacts on almost every area of our lives, including communications, commerce, entertainment, manufacturing, healthcare, transport, energy and the environment.

With an emphasis on Industry 4.0 concepts, you'll learn about the latest developments and techniques in a variety of cutting-edge areas of engineering, such as Digital Signal Processing (DSP), robotics, AI, internet of things (IoT), power electronics, and sustainable technologies, so you'll graduate well-prepared to enter the workplace.

From day one, you'll take a systematic, hands-on approach to real-life engineering challenges alongside your peers, developing your leadership, project management, problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, teamworking and presentation skills. These skills are in high demand among employers and you'll use them throughout your career.
