Overview

Electrical and electronic engineers are at the forefront of the challenge to connect our world; to design and build more efficient and affordable technology; to provide a robust and green energy network; and to help us live better, healthier, smarter and more sustainably.

It’s a discipline which impacts on almost every area of our lives, including communications, commerce, entertainment, manufacturing, healthcare, transport, energy and the environment.

This degree prepares future engineering leaders to manage the business of engineering through a series of modules taught by Imperial College Business School. The knowledge and skills you gain will form part of the foundation for your future career, which could be working in a large organisation or even starting up your own company. This course is also a popular route into graduate positions in the finance sector; and if you aspire to a management role in a technical environment, this degree provides the best of both worlds.

Study programme

Years one and two follow a core programme covering the fundamentals of electrical and electronic engineering in areas such as analogue and digital electronics, communication and control, alongside mathematics and computing modules.

You will learn to analyse and optimise systems by modelling them. You will also focus on programming, with the chance to use the latest computing technologies.

Over your third and fourth year you will take six business modules in addition to a range of specialist technical modules. The business modules are delivered by Imperial College Business School, which is triple-accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB, and will equip you with an understanding of the management of the operating environment of business organisations.

MEng students have the option to complete a six-month industrial placement, gaining valuable skills and experience by solving real engineering problems. Alternatively, you can take part in a three-month group project, acting as technical consultants to a brief provided by an industrial client. This involves specifying and designing, implementing and testing a pre-production prototype of a new product or technical solution.

The fourth and final year of the integrated Master's course offers a wide choice of advanced modules based on state-of-the-art research carried out in the Department. Studying to this level means that graduates require fewer years of work experience to become a Chartered Engineer (see Professional accreditation).

The most important part of your final year is the individual project. It allows you to implement the technical information assimilated over the course of your degree, and develop novel approaches to present-day problems.

Projects

Engineers are innovators and problem solvers – you need practical skills, planning, time management and the ability to work as part of a team.

Electrical Engineering studentsYou'll start developing your engineering skills through a structured programme of project work from your first year, with a group project to establish the basics of the engineering design process.

You begin by deconstructing a simple electronic toy and using a circuit simulation program to understand how it works. You then propose and design some enhancements to the toy and try them in the circuit simulator. Finally, you build your chosen design and test it in competition with other groups.

Group projects in your second and third year let you investigate the technical, social and financial aspects of products and services, and how to design, build and test them.

You will also have weekly classes in the electrical and computer laboratories to gain valuable practical experience.

By your final year you'll be fully equipped to demonstrate all your knowledge, skills and innovation in a large and ambitious individual project. This project is the most important single piece of work in your degree programme, giving you the chance to demonstrate independence and originality, and to plan and organise a large project.

Transfer between courses

The common first and second years of our Electrical and Electronic Engineering courses mean that transfer between streams is usually possible up until the end of your second year; or third year for the Year Abroad option.

  • Transfer from the BEng to the MEng stream is conditional upon meeting specified academic criteria (such as a certain minimum grade in Year 2 Mathematics).
  • Transfer from MEng to Year Abroad is made during Year 3
  • You must normally be achieving marks of 65% and above at the time of selection to be eligible for the Year Abroad course.

There is no benefit in applying to more than one course in this Department so you should only apply to one. If you are unsure which to choose, you have the option to transfer to another course within the Department during the first year, though you will need to meet the original requirements of the course you are transferring to.

Electronic Engineering students and Information Engineering students share a common first year. At the end of your first year you choose whether to study on the Electrical and Electronic Engineering stream, or the Electronic and Information Engineering stream.

If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your student visa. Please visit our International Student Support webpage for further information.
