We undertake studies in transport, power generation and energy systems, with a focus on low emission technologies and energy efficiency.
From day one, UoM EEE graduates engineer the innovative solutions that are revolutionising technology and addressing the most complex challenges faced by society today. Our graduates not only create technical solutions by drawing on their extensive knowledge of Electrical Engineering fundamentals and engineering project experience, but shape these solutions to fit societal and commercial needs. They are meaningfully connected with their fellow graduates and share as a cohort a rigorous engineering ethos.
