Degree in Electrical Engineering BSc (Eng)

BSc (Eng) Electronic and Electrical Engineering

1. Overview

This part-time (evening course) engineering course is aimed at students who have the potential and motivation to become competent professional engineers but are unable to commit to full-time study. The course will enable you to cultivate the knowledge and skills needed to confidently develop, manage, operate and maintain complex engineering processes and systems.

The course is offered on a part-time, evening class basis at stage 3 and is specifically designed for entrants with an HND in the appropriate discipline. NESCol offer a stage 2 equivalent for students who do not yet have the HND qualification required for BSc Stage 3 direct entry. Please contact NESCol to note your interest for study on their part-time HND programme.

2. What you will study

The BSc (Eng) Electronic and Electrical Engineering course is a stage 3 only course. The course is divided into two sections (stage 3a and stage 3b) and delivered over two years, each stage normally taking two years to complete. Students typically attend classes two evenings per week and will benefit from practical classes and tutorial groups led by staff with experience in both industry and the academic environment.
