MEng degrees

We offer a range of IET-accredited degrees covering the wide spectrum of Electronic and Electrical Engineering which can be studied as a four year Bachelor’s degree (MEng) with an option to add a Year in Industry.


Our courses

Our wide range of MEng undergraduate degree programmes provide you with a robust understanding of the principles of electronic and electrical engineering. In years one and two our EEE degrees have the same core modules.  This allows you the flexibility to change courses up to the end of your Second Year if you wish to focus on certain areas of interest.

Our graduates go on to work in the energy, communications, computer hardware and software engineering and the manufacturing sectors.


All our courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). A four year MEng meets all the academics standards for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. 

Please note, all Electronics with Computer Engineering courses are new degree titles and the Department is seeing accreditation from the IET which will be backdated to entry.

We recognise that ability isn't always demonstrated through a standard set of A Level or equivalent qualifications. Our Access Sheffield scheme helps ensure that everyone who has the potential to succeed on our courses has the right opportunity to do so.
