Entry Requirements

2017 Entry Requirements

The offer level for 2017 entry will be BCC - ABB at A Level or DMM - DDM at BTEC Extended Diploma or 104 - 128 new UCAS tariff points.

In addition, applicants require A Level (or equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics or Electronics (or equivalent Science subject)

UCAS points offers can be achieved in many ways, the following are just a few examples of how you could achieve our entry requirements:

  • Three A Levels with grades of BCC or above
  • BTEC Extended Diploma (QCF) with grade DMM
  • BTEC Diploma (QCF) with grade DM and BTEC Subsidiary Diploma (QCF) with grade M
  • BTEC Diploma (QCF) with grade DM and A Level with grade of C
  • CACHE Diploma at grade B

The Access to HE Diploma now also attracts points under the new UCAS tariff. Visit the UCAS website to calculate your points.

Course Combinations

Electronic and Computer Engineering is available as a MEng programme, UCAS code V3T9, a BEng (with a year in industry), UCAS code HH61, or a MEng (with year in industry), UCAS code HH62.

Employability

A degree in electronic and computer engineering will make you highly employable having developed specific skills in electronic systems design and software development. There is a skills gap in this area, which means there are not enough qualified graduates to fill the roles required. You will be ideally placed to gain employment in high-demand roles such as a design engineer across a range of sectors including consumer electronics and computer engineering.
