Electronic and electrical engineers invent and create the technology that underpins much of today’s high tech society. From devices and systems that monitor our health and wellbeing, through a global communications network, to harnessing nature to produce renewable electrical energy. The always-on, always-connected world typified by the smartphone, has been made possible by advances in our understanding of the electronic properties of materials, the transmission of information and the ability to construct and analyse highly integrated electronic systems.
Some reasons to study Electronic and Electrical Engineering at UCL…
Students are exposed to the science and mathematics that electronic engineers use to model and design new devices and systems, from the interactions of electrons and manipulation of single atoms in nanotechnology devices through to design of new hardware and protocols for the Internet. They are then given the opportunity to put this into practice through free-form challenges such as capturing and analysing the signal from a phone line or creating electronic components from household materials
Practical activities are central to electronic & electrical engineering and our labs provide a full range of state of the art facilities. They are available to students through lab sessions in the early years and for project work, as well as for student groups and societies. The lab facilities include the usual range of digital oscilloscopes and signal generators, microprocessor development software and testing equipment, a full range of RF and optical communications test equipment and all the equipment needed to develop multi-layer, printed circuit boards using surface mount components.
