One of the greatest strengths of the course is the contact it will give you with industry. We provide you with access to cutting-edge equipment and state-of-the-art laboratories thanks to our partnership with Farnell - a world leading distributor of electronic, electrical, industrial and maintenance, repair and operations products.

In addition to using Farnell's facilities at their Kirkstall premises in Leeds you will be given the opportunity to do a lot of design and simulation using Lab View and ELVIS boards simulation software and embedded systems development boards at our own Headingley campus.

As part of an exciting engineering design project with Farnell you will get the opportunity in your first year to build a robot and programme it to work out a maze.

Our links with industry also mean that you will benefit from guest lectures by professionals working in the field and site visits to see electronic and electrical engineering in action.
