The University of Wolverhampton

BEng (Hons) Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering with Sandwich Placement

Why choose this course?

In addition to gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding of the core subject, you will also gain experience of designing engineering systems that incorporate aspects of the mechanical and electrical/electronic technologies. In addition to experimental work at the University you will use Radar equipment at the DCAE Cosford Royal Air Force base - the same equipment used to train Air Force personnel.

The first year of study will cover a range of engineering topics and is aimed at providing a sound base for the following years. You will study Mathematics, and the underlying concepts of Electrical, Mechanical, Materials, and Production Engineering. You will undertake laboratory work and utilise your new production knowledge to build and test a design. In the second year, you will learn about Telecommunications and Signal Processing, Electronic Design, and Control Systems. You will also study Engineering Management and learn the role and responsibilities of a professional engineer. In your third year, you will complete an individual project, acquire specialist Electronics and Communications Systems knowledge, and learn how to convert an idea into a commercial venture. Should you pursue the MEng then you will cover some of these topics in more depth alongside broadening studies, for example in business management and accounting.

What happens on the course?

The School of Engineering specialises in the integration of the mechanical engineering and electrical/electronic engineering disciplines. The BEng Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering course reflects this emphasis and, in addition to gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding of the core subject, you will also gain experience of designing engineering systems that incorporate aspects of the mechanical and electrical/electronic technologies.

You will be using industry-standard software. In addition to experimental work at the University you will use Radar equipment at the Cosford Royal Air Force base - the same equipment used to train Air Force personnel. You will be taught by lecturers who have a wealth of industrial experience in an environment focused on working with, and supporting engineering and technology companies

Why Wolverhampton?

Responding to the regional and national shortage of graduate qualified Engineers the University of Wolverhampton is currently investing over £10m in new Engineering facilities at its Telford Innovation Campus and City Campus in Wolverhampton.

New Engineering courses on offer from 2015 share a design that incorporates significant elements of problem and activity-based learning and live industrial project-work. The courses have embedded themes of creativity, employability, professional engineering, and sustainability and the environment. All of our courses are designed to meet the latest standards for accreditation as defined by the Engineering Council.

Students studying Engineering courses will have access to new specialist equipment and technology that is at the forefront of engineering developments. This includes a design and visualisation facility modeled on best-practice in industry, wind tunnels (including a formula-1 specification rolling road wind tunnel), engine test facilities, a composites laboratory, 3-d printing facilities, an electronics and telecommunications laboratory, a metrology laboratory and a materials testing laboratory.

Our aim is for our graduates to be ready for employment. We provide additional opportunities for students to gain employability skills, with employability workshops and awards as part of the course. In addition and to further develop employability skills, we offer ‘Club Activities’. These currently include the IMechE Formula Student Activity, the Human Powered Flight Club, the Flight Simulator Club and the Formula Renault 2l Racing Team Club. These are great fun, and the only conditions to entry are that you need to engage and demonstrate commitment.

All engineering courses are offered from the Telford Innovation Campus, located close to Telford town centre in rural Shropshire. Chemical Engineering is the exception to this, and this is offered at City Campus in Wolverhampton.

Career path

Electronics and Telecommunications graduates will find many opportunities for well-paid jobs such as designing communication networks, managing networks, or developing novel electronic systems. The multidisciplinary nature of the electrical, electronics and communications engineering subject area provides career opportunities in a broad spectrum of industries, from consumer goods design and manufacture to large process control plants, and of course the telecommunications sector.Graduates may also study for a taught postgraduate degree, MSc, or a research degree, MPhil/PhD, within the School.

Who accredits this course?

Because of re-validation of Engineering Programmes in 2015 we will be presenting all engineering programmes for accreditation from respective professional body in the 2017/18 academic year. Accreditation will be back dated for post 2015 enrolments.
