Year 3: You develop specialist engineering skills in your preferred subject area through a selection of classes including Electromagnetics, Embedded Systems, Power Engineering, Renewable Technologies and Engineering Innovation.
Year 4 (BEng Honours & MEng): You personalise your studies through combining a selection of specialist classes including Communications Networks, Electric Vehicle Technologies, Robotics Design, Multimedia Systems, Information Security and Energy Supply, with an individual project. BEng Honours students graduate at the end of this year.
Year 5 (MEng only): A group project and selection of classes from advanced topics including Microcontroller Design, High Voltage Technologies, and Mobile & Wireless Communications are completed to develop professional engineering expertise and project management skills.
"I was drawn to Strathclyde by its great reputation in the engineering industry, as well as the wide range of scholarships available. I enjoyed the various projects that were assigned throughout the degree, in particular the group project in 5th year. In my 2nd year of study I was successful in applying to the IET Power Academy scheme, and was sponsored by ScottishPower Energy Networks. This provided me with an annual bursary, and paid work over the summer."
Further Study: PhD at the EEE Department.
"I chose to study at Strathclyde following a residential week at the University for the Scottish Space School. Lectures on the structure of the sector combined with technical knowledge gained over the five years have prepared me well for my chosen career in the power industry. My time at university has provided me with a wide range of skills. It has given me confidence in communicating with people from all walks of life and strong problem solving abilities developed when I was a class representative."
