Course Overview

This course delivers strong academic content conveyed with a factual focus, with the aim of preparing you to take on the challenges present in the many fields of engineering and science which employ electrical and electronic engineering graduates.

Electrical and electronic engineers (EEE) design, develop and implement a multiplicity of systems associated with electrical and electronic engineering. On the electrical side, they could be involved in the generation, transmission and control of electrical energy or machine design and the implementation power drive systems which links to power electronic engineering.

EEE engineers are hugely involved in the expanding world of electrical vehicle design and make enormous contributions in terms of technological innovation and advancement in a range of other specialised fields; for example, aerospace systems, civil engineering in projects such as high-speed train design and development.

At Coventry University, we believe that studying engineering should be so much more than acquiring theory and passing examinations. Our Activity-Led Learning (ALL) approach aims to enable you to develop your skills and knowledge by working on real-life problems and projects, many commissioned by our industry partners.

Designed to meet the Engineering Council UK-SPEC standard, the course curriculum covers the essential principles of electrical and electronic engineering. It aims to develop the advanced skills needed by today’s graduates to develop high quality solutions in electrical and electronic engineering. Successful completion of this course provides a solid foundation from which to commence a career in electrical and electronic engineering.

Techniques, procedures and methods to design and develop embedded system in the context of delivering engineering solutions.

Engineering Mathematics

Develop expertise in mathematical methods relevant to engineering.

Course Information

Electrical and electronics engineers perform a critical role in today’s modern world, advancing the technology which drives much of the activity in our everyday lives from light and power to smart devices and transportation.

You will have the opportunity to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary for the generation, distribution, application and control of electrical energy used by interdisciplinary industries as diverse as aerospace, automotive, and construction.

Aligned with Coventry University’s pillars of teaching and learning, the course offers an activity-led learning approach, which enables you to develop essential skills and knowledge through project-based activities that are driven by real-life problems and new technological trends including the Internet of Things (IoT), embedded systems, robotics, and automation.

Direct Entry Level 4 students for the purposes of Engineering Council Recognition ONLY must study the additional
following modules:

  • Business Simulation
  • Project Management
  • New Product Development Strategies
  • A credit/notional hour is the formal name for the estimated hours that are expected that a student would need to complete a module.
  • 1 credit is equal to 10 notional hours, so 20 credits are equal to 200 notional hours, The 200 hours includes time in lectures, tutorials, preparing for your lectures, assessments as well as your own personal revision and studying that you would do.
  • In reality, you might actually go above and beyond the expected notional hours, in particular if your degree requires a lot of independent learning you would most likely exceed the predicted hours.
  • In the UK system each semester is 60 credits worth which is equivalent to at least 600 hours of study in one term. This is approximately equivalent to 8 hours of study a day,

We regularly review our course content to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
