Electrical engineering careers offer high employability due to demand outstripping supply in terms of skilled workers. In the UK, electronic engineering graduates don’t meet the growth rate needed to fill the skills gaps, making this the perfect time to begin your upskilling journey.
But choosing the right university is key if you want to enjoy personal and professional development, and have access to the best jobs in the industry. The University of Bolton’s master’s degree in Electrical Engineering is designed for engineering graduates looking to get into a specialist role. And here are just some of the reasons why our university is a great place to study!
Our programme is formulated to meet the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). This ensures that you can achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status when combined with a relevant Undergraduate degree. If you want to demonstrate to potential employers or clients that you’ve been independently assessed and your credentials have been verified, accreditation is the way to do that.
Not only are we in the Top 5 in the UK for Teaching Quality across all subject areas (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020), but we are featured in the Top 50 UK Universities for Electronic Engineering Courses in The Guardian University League Tables 2021. Plus, students have voted us No.1 in the North West for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide in 2021, 2020 and 2019). This makes the University of Bolton one of the top places to study if you’re after a fantastic university experience!
As well as promoting women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) jobs, we also celebrate inclusivity and diversity on campus. There are over 60 nationalities represented here, making life at the University of Bolton a real celebration of cultures and a great place to meet people.
With workers in such high demand, there are many types of electrical engineering careers you can pursue. Our course leaders will provide one-to-one mentorship to help you establish the right career path, and upon graduation you will have the assistance of our Employability Team. Our dedication to supporting engineering graduates means that everyone has the same opportunities to reach their potential.
