Language – A qualification such as IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in all areas) or TOEFL – 550 (paper based), 213 (computer based), 80 (internet based). See our website for other accepted qualifications or phone us: +44 (0)1332 591698.

In electronic engineering, we apply electricity to carry, process and store information. Electronics depends heavily on semiconductor technology, which has led to the invention of the famous microchip. Both electrical and electronic engineering depend on the same fundamental scientific laws, but diverge widely beyond these basics.


Entry requirements: Academic – 260 UCAS tariff points, of which at least 220 must be from your International Baccalaureate or equivalent qualification.

What you’ll cover


and the principles that underlie them. Where you will study: Derby Campus – Markeaton Street site.

Additional information


If you don’t have appropriate qualifications to start this course straight away, you can study the Technology Foundation Programme first.

Stage two You’ll choose from: ▪ Computer Systems and Software Engineering ▪ Control and Instrumentation ▪ Electronic Communications Technology

Between the second and third year you will have the option of developing your skills and knowledge in industry by completing an optional work placement. On completion of two modules, you’ll be awarded the Diploma in Professional Practice. This course is one of a suite of courses offered by the Electronics and Sound subject group. Since the others are closely related to this one, you’ll benefit from close links and collaborations with other students studying multimedia, music production or live event technology. This will provide you with a challenging, stimulating and creative learning environment.

Diploma in Professional Practice (optional) You’ll take: ▪ Contemporary Issues in Professional Practice ▪ Applied Professional Practice Stage three You’ll choose from: ▪ Communication Systems and Electromagnetic Compatibility ▪ Embedded Systems ▪ Digital Signal Processing ▪ Power Electronics and Applications ▪ Sensor and Control Systems
