Electronics and Internet of Things - BEng (Hons)

This career-focused course is designed to help you kick-start your career in a range of industrial sectors that require you to use internet connected electronic and cyber-physical systems. You could go on to work in areas such as aeronautics, automotive, defence, smartphones, telecommunications, medical devices or railway systems.

Course details

Businesses around the world view the lack of skill and knowledge of Internet of Things (IoT) within their workforce as one of the biggest obstacles to using it more extensively. As a result, the demand for graduates with knowledge and skills in electronics and IoT is rapidly growing.

Course overview

This Electronic Engineering and Internet of Things BEng is supported by several specialised laboratories in general electronics, IoT, high frequency communications, computer-aided design (CAD), embedded systems and digital systems and opto-electronics.

When studying any of our specialised modules you’ll spend a considerable part of the module in laboratories, to provide you with an opportunity to practise what you learn in your lectures and seminar sessions. Using an industry-standard simulation package, you’ll investigate, design, implement, test and document a variety of real-world examples of electronics and communications systems. These sessions are performed individually or as part of a group.
