Electronic and Electrical Engineering MEng with Year Abroad
Engineers are innovators who bring about change through their ingenuity, experience and curiosity to improve the quality of life for people throughout the world. Their work is central to thriving economies and competitive industries. It is equally important in developing countries where engineers provide appropriate technologies during difficult times of change.
Professional engineers have a high degree of specialist knowledge but increasingly they use a broad approach to problem solving across a range of engineering disciplines. This is coupled with an awareness of environmental, social, legal, economic and regulatory aspects of the problem at hand.

Whether you study for the BEng or the MEng, your Electronic and Electrical Engineering degree will combine a multidisciplinary approach to design with specific skills in electronics and power engineering, communications, control and computer programming.
Electronic and Electrical Engineering is one of the fastest growing branches of engineering, incorporating a whole spectrum of activities and specialisations. The generation, transmission, distribution and utilisation of electrical energy is a huge field, including developments in renewable energy systems such as geothermal, wave, solar, tidal and wind power. Electronic and Electrical Engineering also covers software engineering, microprocessors and embedded microcontrollers, and control systems for manufacturing, aerospace, chemical processes and transportation.
Building on a broad foundation of engineering studies in Year 1, you will develop specific expertise and skills in electrical engineering, communications, semiconductors, electrical machines and microprocessor programming
Successful engineers must be able to analyse and solve complex problems in the industrial context, communicate ideas to others and work effectively in teams and exercise leadership skills. This is why all our Engineering degrees include a selection of management content or specialised modules throughout. Topics covered include business finance, project planning and management, intellectual property, health and safety, motivation theory, marketing, total quality management, ethics and professionalism.
What's the difference?
We offer four different Engineering subjects, each of which is available in six forms:
BEng (3 years); BEng with Industry (4 years), BEng with Year Abroad (4 years)
MEng (4 years); MEng with Industry (5 years), MEng with Year Abroad (5 years)
The MEng places greater emphasis on industrially related project work, advanced technical content and leadership, and automatically meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. The MEng shares its first three years with the corresponding BEng programme.

Job Opportunity Potential
During your degree you will have the opportunity to experience The Leicester Award; a personal development programme which helps you to identify, develop, reflect upon and articulate your self-awareness and transferable skills from your academic studies and experiences beyond your degree.
You can then undertake your Leicester Award Gold, our career development programme, which will support you with finding work experience and unlock exclusive networks such as our Professional Mentoring Programme.
The best way to prepare for work – is work. It is important that you gain work experience on and off campus to prepare yourself for the workplace. Many of our degrees include an optional Year in Industry. Others have placement opportunities or modules which involve working on a real industry project. Our on-campus recruitment agency Unitemps provides part time employment opportunities.
Our annual week-long Festival of Careers is a huge student graduate recruitment event with a wide range of top employers from across many sectors on campus. You can attend the Festival each year of your course to help you find out the opportunities on offer for you to gain work experience and consider your options after University.
Our award-winning Career Development Service provides dedicated personalised support, advice and guidance. It’s not ‘one size fits all’ – it’s the support that you need for your course, your ambitions, your skills. In other words, it’s what’s right for you.
When you don that cap and gown, we don’t wave bye-bye and forget about you. After University, the Career Development Service will continue to support you as a graduate in your career, with lifetime access to careers advice and support through appointments and workshops.

For many courses at the University of Leicester, you will need 80% overall or higher, along with higher individual marks of 85% in relevant subjects. If you are studying A-levels or the International Baccalaureate (IB) then you can begin from the first year of a Bachelors degree. Please see inidvidual course pages for entry requirements. If you have already completed the first year of an undergraduate degree at an Indian university, you may be considered for entry to the first or second year of a Bachelors degree if you have studied relevant subjects and/or modules. We also have progression arrangements with some partner institutions in India, which allow advance entry to certain University of Leicester courses. Please contact the International Office for further information. If you do not meet the entry requirements for one of our courses, you can apply for an International Foundation Year run by the Global Study Centre. The GSC provides academic support to help you progress to your chosen undergraduate degree at the University of Leicester.
