Study in Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering

Learning in EESE is based around dedicated, state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities, with Electronics Laboratories for teaching and one for student project work,  a Special Projects Lab (funded through the generous donation of Alumni), and Computer labs solely for Undergraduate use.

All of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), allowing you to take the first steps towards professional Chartered Engineer status.

You can study the programmes as three-year BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) or four-year MEng (Master of Engineering) degrees. All of our students have the option of taking a year in industry, earning money and working on engineering projects with one of our industrial partners. 

We strive to be as flexible as possible, giving our students the opportunity to tailor their undergraduate study as they wish so they can specialise throughout their time at  Birmingham. 


New building and facilities for the School Of Engineering

The University has begun work on a new School of Engineering building, due for completion in 2020. It will bring together many engineering disciplines into one state-of-the-art building.

The University of Birmingham is committed to providing the best academic buildings for the benefit of students, staff and researchers in the School of Engineering. The new building will provide different and more flexible ways of working that will use the space to its best advantage. 

The new School of Engineering will sit alongside a world class centre of excellence in rail in partnership with industry, focusing on digital systems. Funded as part of the newly-created  UK Railway Research and Innovation Network (UKRRIN), it will focus on railway control and simulation, data integration and cybersecurity, condition monitoring and sensing, and improved methods for technology introduction. This builds on existing strength in  rail research.
