More about this course

Employability is one of the key goals of our Electrical, Electronic and Energy Engineering MEng degree, putting you in a strong position to enter the engineering industry – where talented graduates are highly sought-after. It builds on the University of Hull’s reputation for outstanding engineering programmes and equips you with the advanced interdisciplinary knowledge and technical skills required for designers of renewable and other energy systems.

There are three options available for studying Electrical, Electronic and Energy Engineering at Hull. You can choose to study the four-year programme or boost your employability further by opting for one of the five-year courses. Students who complete the five-year programme have the opportunity to study abroad or earn while they learn on an industrial placement in Year 4, before returning to complete the final year.

This degree has a major focus on teaching practical skills. We offer state-of-the-art workshops, specialist computing facilities and teaching and project laboratories. Your career prospects are enhanced by the University’s unique location within the Yorkshire and Humber region. The ‘Energy Estuary’ is rapidly emerging as Europe’s renewable energy capital, with engineering giant Siemens and partner Associated British Ports investing £310 million in a wind turbine production facility at Green Port Hull. Meanwhile, Vivergo Fuels’ plant near the city is set to become the country’s largest producer of bioethanol.

All BEng and MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering programmes are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. BEng programmes fully meet the academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meet the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. MEng programmes fully meet the academic requirements for registration for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

Future Prospects

Employment prospects for engineering graduates continue to be excellent, and many receive several firm offers of employment before graduating. A report from industry body EngineeringUK highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers within the engineering sector.

The Humber region is rapidly emerging as the ‘Energy Estuary’ and 29% of all enterprises are engineering-related, with an overall turnover of £61 billion. This has created a range of challenging and rewarding positions for talented engineering graduates.

The expertise you gain as an engineering graduate – your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, capacity to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams – are much in demand in all areas of engineering and this means that starting salaries and average earnings are reflected as a result.

You will also find that your engineering degree makes you highly sought-after and much in demand by leading companies, particularly in the global market place; your engineering degree can therefore lead to a career anywhere in the world.
