Electrical and Electronic Engineering BEng (Hons)
COURSE INFORMATION (2013 ENTRY)
4 years part-timeEngineering and Environment
Ellison Building, Newcastle City Campus
This part-time programme is aimed at employed engineers in the North East and North West of England and the Scottish Borders, who want to upgrade their skills and enhance their career.
The course is based on the well established Electrical and Electronic Engineering full-time course, which has enjoyed continuous accreditation for over 25 years with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
The course will enable you to obtain a BEng (Hons) degree by attending the University’s City Campus site for one full day a week over a four-year period. You will complete design and project work in years three and four, which will be based on problems in your own company/industry. Year one of the course is studied on Tuesday of each week. You will benefit from learning in an extensive range of modern engineering and computing laboratories, equipped with the same equipment as is used in industry.
We maintain strong links with local industry via consultancy work, industrial placements, an industrial liaison panel and continued contact with our alumni working in the region.
LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
In the first two years of the part-time course, you will complete individual assignments on a set schedule, which, with laboratory work, makes up a steady diet of continuous assessment. In the last two years there is more emphasis on directed study. In year three you will complete a company based design study and in year four, an individual project which, between them, constitutes around 40% of the marks awarded towards the degree classification.
Coursework requires attendance at lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory classes and design office sessions. For some of the time, part-time students are taught as a separate group; over the four years of the course this develops into a distinctive self supporting network. However, the core material for the course is presented in keynote lectures to large groups comprising both part-time students and students on the equivalent full-time course. Small group teaching is used to reinforce the keynote lectures and enable detailed questions to be individually addressed.
This programme is CEng accredited. It fulfils the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer when presented with an accredited MSc or equivalent further learning.
In addition, the programme meet the educational requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer.
This programme will update and extend your skills in electrical and electronic engineering, enabling you to apply your skills immediately in your role. You may find that studying this programme gives you the confidence and skills to successfully apply for promotion.
