BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The course has also improved my understanding and knowledge to a high level.

Why Teesside?

Teesside has a great reputation for engineering and being from the local area made the decision very easy. After attending an open day, I saw the range of courses and modules on offer and my decision was made.

Best thing about the course?

The people! The staff are fantastic and always provided me with guidance when I was struggling with a certain topic or area. The lecturers do all they can to ensure you achieve the best grade possible. I especially appreciated the one-to-one meetings in my final year to assist me with my final project. The course has also improved my understanding and knowledge to a high level.

How has Teesside prepared you for work?

My time at Teesside has improved my management and organisational skills. For one of the modules I keep a logbook to update with entries on the project and this helps me keep a daily track of progress, something that transfers to all aspects of my life.

Would you recommend Teesside?

Yes, the experience is excellent. The lecturers are very informative and provide great opportunities for you to ask them industry related questions that can further your learning. The laboratory sessions allow us to put the theory into practice and test with apparatus such as the Lucas Nuelle overhead and underground transmission lines. The staff are friendly and professional and do their best to help you all year long.

What are your ambitions for the future?

I am still considering studying the MSc Electrical Power and Energy Systems to further enhance my knowledge of power systems and to apply for chartered engineer status.
