Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Electrical and Electronic Engineering


We rely on electrical and electronic engineers for almost everything we do – from small electrical devices to high voltage electrical power generation systems. Electrical and electronic engineers will be vital to future technologies such as driverless vehicles, robotics, medical equipment and the next generation of mobile data transmission.

At Aberdeen, you will get to use your imagination, creativity and knowledge to supply and improve upon the complex systems needed by today’s society. You might design machines that supply power to our homes, digital control systems for aircraft or put an entire computer system on a single silicon chip. In particular, we have labs dedicated to satellite communications, robotics, lasers and computer-aided design, as well as many others.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering is at the core of the modern world, from computers, to digital circuits, photonics and a wealth of electronic devices. Our society relies on Electrical Engineers for everything from low power electrical machines, control systems, to high voltage electrical power generation and distribution systems.

The first two years of our engineering degrees cover general engineering, with elements of civil, chemical, mechanical, petroleum, as well as electrical and electronic. In the later years, you specialise, following your chosen discipline in greater depth. You do not need to finalise your choice of specialisation until you begin your third year.

Our 4-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) programmes are accredited as fully meeting the educational requirements for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and partially meeting the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng). After the first two years, students on the four-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) have the opportunity to pursue the 5-year Masters of Engineering in their chosen discipline.
