Career options

Graduates are well-placed for senior roles in the electronics industry (with sectors including Energy and Power, Telecommunications, Consumer Electronics and Aerospace) Many such organisations need engineers with a deep understanding of business and management issues. Furthermore, graduates are increasingly finding careers in companies that are applying digital technologies to improve their business.

Entry requirements

A degree equivalent to a UK upper second class honours (2:1) degree or higher in an appropriate numerate discipline usually electronic engineering, but others may be considered.

In some special cases, if places are still available, applicants with a good lower second class (2:2) honours degree and who have relevant work experience may also be considered and so should not be deterred from applying.

We also welcome and accept students with a wide range of international equivalent qualifications.

English language requirement: A pass at GCSE level in English language (grade C or above). If English is not your first language, you are required to provide evidence of proficiency in English. You will need to meet our minimum requirements for one of the following recognised English language tests: the International English Language Testing Service (IELTS), the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the Pearson Test of English Academic.
