Are you fascinated by how things work? Passionate about electronics? Solent University’s professionally accredited electronic engineering programme can help you to turn these interests into a lucrative and engaging career.

With a broad curriculum covering everything from analogue and digital electronics to contemporary embedded systems, signal processing technologies and modern communications, graduates can expect to seek employment in research and development, maintenance engineering, electronic design, telecommunications and much more.

In the first year, students develop a solid foundation in maths and circuitry before getting to grips with analogue, digital and microcomputer systems. The latter half of the year is focused on developing an understanding of industry software, key professional skills and manufacturing techniques.

These proficiencies will form a solid foundation for the second and third year, where students will study embedded systems and advanced data communications, carry out their own research and undertake a major practical project.

This course is also offered as standard full-time study to students or on a one-day-per-week part-time study basis for professional CPD for staff already in employment.

Meet the team

The engineering team has a diverse range of academic and industrial experience and research interests in the fields of digital signal processing, micro-controller and embedded programming, the automation of sensing, capturing and processing data, and a range of electronic communication and simulation methods.

The University cannot guarantee any particular members of staff will teach specific aspects of the course in the future, but will endeavour to ensure the teaching team maintains their balance of experience and qualifications.

Facilities

Electronic engineering students benefit from access to a range of high-end facilities including rapid prototyping equipment, PSpice/NI MultiSim software and microcomputer development systems. Solent University also offers students access to digital multi-meter signal generators, FLIR cameras and digital signal processing (DSP) boards – all of which allow students to better understand how the theory they have learnt links to real workplace scenarios.

Laboratories also include NI MultiSim eCAD software, rapid prototyping equipment with 3D printers and laser cutters, and a wide range of development systems for microcomputer and microcontroller systems.
