What will I study?
The School has a reputation for innovation in teaching and learning with most modules delivered through a combination of traditional face to face teaching and distance learning through the university's StudyNet web based facility. With a heavy emphasis on Computer Aided Engineering, the school has a policy of using industrial standard software wherever possible.
All engineering apprenticeships offered by the University of Hertfordshire are offered in three study modes: Block Release, Part-time or Day-release + short course delivery. The choice of delivery is dependant on the type of organisation and the working pattern that is most appropriate, as well as the apprentices’ location and ability to commute.
The broad-based skills acquired during this course will equip you to enter a wide range of electrical and electronics sectors. Our previous graduates have found employment in medical electronics, power generation and distribution industries, communications, avionics and automotive electronics, with many successfully moving into management positions within a few years. Many others decide to stay at the University and extend their engineering education to a postgraduate level.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, examinations may be replaced by an alternative form of assessment during the academic year 2020/2021. Please refer to the Programme Specification on these pages for further details.
