Subject

Electronic engineering

Develop the technical knowledge and project experience for a career as an electronic engineer designing the circuits, processors and devices at the core of technological evolution.

**Why study BEng/MEng Electronic Engineering at Middlesex University?**
Electronic Engineering at Middlesex is available as either a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng).

As part of our suite of Design Engineering courses, the Electronic Engineering degrees produce professional and competent multi-disciplinary engineers specialist in analogue and digital electronic systems. You will design and build complex electronic circuits and systems-on-a-chip using a range of methods and software tools, applying a systems engineering approach to problem solving.

To support your career success, you will build a professional portfolio of work throughout your degree and receive regular guest lectures and project feedback from industry professionals, with the option of spending a year on industry placement.

Flexible programme design
Our suite of Design Engineering courses share a common first year of study, which enable students to experience all aspects of engineering. Depending on your interests, you can then continue with the Electronic Engineering degree or transfer to one of these specialist honours programmes:

Design Engineering - Design and implementation of digital systems
Mechatronics - Design of electro-mechanical systems using computer control aspects
Robotics - Analysing and developing robotics systems

**Course highlights**
You will be encouraged to enter prestigious design engineering competitions to enhance your experience and career prospects
Our dedicated facilities in the new Ritterman Building open in Autumn 2016 and are equipped with industry standard equipment in electronics, mechatronics, robotics and networking solutions
All the essential software needed to study the course is provided, including LabVIEW, SolidWorks and STEP-7
You will extend your industry knowledge through our series of weekly guest lectures delivered by some of the UKs leading design experts and companies
A year-long work placement is available as part of the course
If you apply for our four-year MEng course you will gain a masters qualification as soon as you successfully complete your undergraduate degree
Whichever pathway you choose, you can change to another after your first year. You can also change onto the main Design Engineering pathway after your second year if desired
As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.

This is one of the more popular areas to study engineering and there is not quite such a serious shortage of electrical engineers as there is of other engineering subjects - but there's still plenty of demand. The most common jobs are in telecommunications, electrical and electronic engineering, but there is some crossover with the computing industry, so many graduates start work in IT and computing jobs. At the moment, there's a particular demand for electrical engineers in the electronics, and the car and aerospace industries, and also in defence, and salaries can vary across the country depending on the industry you start in. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
