The electrical engineering degrees provide a broad-based education in electrical and electronic engineering. During the first three years, students study topics from low current electronics to high power systems. In Year 4 you can choose from a set of specialist courses to complement your thesis topic selection.
Years 1 and 2: Forth Valley College
The course is delivered for the first two years at Forth Valley College, where you will study the fundamental principles of electrical engineering technologies. In the second semester of Year 2, Forth Valley College students participate in a design project at Heriot-Watt.
Years 3 to 5: Heriot-Watt University
Forth Valley College students will transfer into the third year of the Heriot-Watt BEng/MEng Electrical Engineering programme and follow its programme structure for the remainder of the degree.
