Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

There can be few modern enterprises and aspects of human life which remain untouched by electronics or electrical engineering - it is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Queen's is concerned with solving practical problems using electrical/electronic science. It is an exciting area of immense growth with a worldwide shortage of qualified engineers.

The subject area is broad, ranging from micro-electronic chip design and manufacture to power generation and distribution. Rapid advances are occurring in fields such as:

Telecommunications; Security; Computer Software; Virtual and Augmented Reality; Hardware and Networking; Control and Robotics; Medical Electronics; Renewable Energy Systems

While the majority of our graduates pursue careers in engineering, significant numbers develop careers in a wide range of other sectors, including Management Consultancy, Investment Banking and Fast Stream Civil Service.
