Electronic and electrical engineers are responsible for the design and development of electronic and electrical aids to modern living. The area of electronic and electrical engineering is very wide and, after two years of common study, the SEGi BEng (Hons) Electronic & Electrical Engineering allows you to focus on one of the following major areas:
- Electronic Engineering
- Concerned primarily with design of components circuits and systems that acquire, condition and process signals representing physical variables and code and transmit information in both electronic form. You decide on the major by doing an electronic engineering research project in Year 3 and choose the relevant optional courses in Year 4. The final year project is therefore to be in the same major.
- Electrical Engineering
- Concerned mainly with generation, distribution, application and control of electrical energy. You will decide on the major by doing an electrical engineering research project in Year 3 and choose the relevant optional courses in Year 4. The final year project is therefore to be in the same major.
You will obtain the necessary academic qualifications, allowing you to register as member of professional bodies. You’ll be prepared for a career not only in the engineering sector, but also in a wide variety of other areas and may choose to embark on a programme of graduate study.
This programme has been approved by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC).
The objectives of this programme are to produce graduates who are able to:
- Practice as engineer in industries related to electronic and electrical engineering globally.
- Pursue postgraduate studies.
- Register with BEM as a professional engineer (IR).
Programme Learning Outcomes:
As graduates, you are expected to demonstrate the following outcomes:
- Engineering Knowledge – Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.
- Problem Analysis – Identify and analyse complex engineering problems, research literature and formulate substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
- Design/Development of Solutions – Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
- Investigation – Conduct investigation into complex problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
- Modern Tool Usage – Create, select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
- The Engineer and Society – Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice.
- Environment and Sustainability – Understand the impact of professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts and demonstrate knowledge of and a need for sustainable development.
- Ethics – Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
- Communication – Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
- Individual and Team Work – Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
- Life-long Learning – Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
- Project Management and Finance – Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
As graduates of the BEng (Hons) Electronic & Electrical Engineering programme, you will have a wide choice of career in sectors including:
- Automotive Industry
- Power Generation and Communications
Within these various industries, students can contribute to design, project management, and even sales and marketing.
