MEng Electronic Engineering with Photonics

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

Infuse your Electronic Engineering studies with the science and technology of light. Photonics engineering has many applications, from broadband internet to precision medical and industrial tools. It’s also vital for new technologies such as quantum and photonic computing, which uses photons for ultra-fast, energy-efficient data processing. This accredited degree will give you access to professional registration as a Chartered Engineer.

On this 4-year, integrated master's, you'll train in the fundamentals of electronic engineering. This will provide a basis for your specialist photonics studies. You'll choose from a huge range of specialist modules, covering the latest advances in areas such as :

fabrication and microscopy

optical communications

nanoelectronic and quantum devices


digital coding and transmission

You’ll learn under academics from our prestigious Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC). The ORC has an impressive record of discoveries - our researchers developed the optical components that power today’s internet.

As part of this course you can:

use our research facilities, including a high-voltage lab and our £110m clean rooms

develop your enterprise skills with help from our startup supporter, Future Worlds

build your own unique electronic systems

This MEng Electronic Engineering with Photonics degree is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

We are also a member of the UK Electronics Skills Foundation.
