On many of our modules, our students compete in groups, testing their practical and theoretical skills. The aim is to encourage the sort of teamwork that they will need to display to succeed in industry. Our modules are designed so that students bring out the best in themselves and in one another, enabling them to continue their own personal development beyond graduation. Electrical and electronic engineers are expected to make a quick and useful contribution at work, so it may not be enough to rely on technical expertise. We provide relevant vacation work experience and industry placements which greatly increase employability and promote ability to work together as a team.
