Overview


If you have a Foundation Degree and want to progress to a Bachelor of Science, our Electronic Engineering top-up course is for you. 

You will gain practical and applied electronics experience and solve real industry problems. 

We have a strong research group in the field of biomedical electronics. And strong links with the automotive industry with research in electric vehicles. So the applications of electronics in our course are based on these research areas. 

You will have access to specialist facilities, including;

  • CAD design suites
  • media technology laboratories
  • automotive laboratories
  • electronics laboratories.

You’ll also have support from our Academic Advisors and Student Support Coordinators. 

On completing your course you’ll gain accreditation as an Incorporated Engineer.
