Electronics is so ubiquitous in
modern life that there are many
opportunities for electronic
engineering graduates to apply their
expertise in other industry sectors.
Business, medicine, aviation,
communications, transport, space
exploration, industrial automation,
crime prevention, science,
entertainment, music, gaming and environmental monitoring have all been revolutionised by electronics.
Did you know that, for example, 30%
of the value of a modern car lies in its
electronic systems and a typical family car
has as many as 70 embedded processors?
Electronic engineering, with unequivocal
commercial significance and with a growing impact on almost every walk of modern life, is also a broad and vibrant multidisciplinary academic field. This is particularly the case at Leeds, where our teaching and research draws upon a range of other disciplines
such as Music, Mechanical Engineering, Computing and Product Design. It is this broad range of experience that makes our graduates especially valuable in both industry and academia.
