Gain the technical and managerial skills to work on complex electronic systems and renewable energy engineering projects. Our four-year degree includes a Masters year.
As global demand for energy grows, governments and companies are increasingly seeking to reduce the world’s dependence on fossil fuels. It's a major challenge. Our course allows you to study electronic engineering alongside specialist topics in the field of renewable energy systems – so that you can help meet that challenge head on.
Study our four-year Electronics and Renewable Energy Systems degree, which includes a Masters year, and get hands-on from day one. Using our dedicated electronics lab, you'll gain extensive experience of power electronics, electric drives, and solar/wind power test benches.
You'll be able to apply your knowledge to real-life situations, while fine-tuning your technical, business and managerial skills.
As an engineering student at ARU, you’ll apply your knowledge in project modules that run throughout each year. Through this practical approach, you’ll develop the technical skills and associated knowledge you need to work in the engineering sector.
You'll work on real-world electronic systems and renewable energy engineering projects that span design, analysis and optimisation
You’ll also learn about broader factors that all engineers have to consider, including the economic, social and environmental impact of your work.
We’ve placed employability at the heart of our MEng Electronic Engineering course, by integrating university learning with real-world projects. As a graduate, you’ll be confident about using your skills to inspire change and innovation.
Our course is accredited by the IET, so you'll be ready to work towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status when you graduate.

Careers in electrical engineering range from pure research through product design and development, to industrial and business management. As a graduate from our MEng Electronics and Renewable Energy Systems, you'll have the skills to work as a team leader or director.
At ARU, we work with employers to make sure you graduate with the knowledge, skills and abilities they need. They help us review what we teach and how we teach it – and they offer hands-on, practical opportunities to learn through work-based projects and internships.
Throughout the course, there’s a focus on employability with learning linked to real-world projects, supported by field trips and other relevant visits.
Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us. If you’d like to continue your studies we offer a range of postgraduate research programmes including a PhD/MPhil in Electronics.
"The department has a fully equipped electronics laboratory staffed by a specialist technician. This allows for practical experimentation using real components and hardware, on an open access basis."
