About Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Aberdeen

Our Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree programmes are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and designed to equip students with the sought-after skills to work at the forefront of new and emerging technologies.

Our flexible approach at Aberdeen allows you to understand and explore the two subjects before choosing your specialisation year three. By your final year, you'll be studying advanced courses while undertaking your ambitious individual project and applying your valuable experience to solve problems as a member of a EEE design team. Opportunities to apply for paid summer scholarships focussing on ground-breaking research are available from year three onwards.
