Student Profile Megan Wyn Owen

BSc Electronic Engineering

"The balance between the lectures and lab sessions has ensured that I understand the work as I get to apply what I’ve learned in lectures in lab practicals."

Career Opportunities in Electronic Engineering

Our graduates go on to work in a huge range of different industries. They are extremely valuable to all kinds of employers. This is because our courses combine high quality teaching coupled with laboratory time. Our students learn the theory and put this into practice in the laboratory straight away.

Our graduates can work in many different areas, from automotive electronics for Jaguar Landrover, Honda or F1 teams, to computer games hardware design; and from government research laboratories to consumer electronics manufacturers.

The mathematical modelling, problem-solving and project management skills that we teach you make you attractive to a much wider range of employers, which is why over 90% of our students walk straight into graduate jobs when they leave Bangor.

Our Research in Electronic Engineering

Our research has performed exceptionally well, which is evidence in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF). In Electronic Engineering, Bangor University was ranked 4th in the UK for research outputs. Our research environment - also of considerable importance to postgraduate students - received a remarkably high rating as well. 

Our research activities are organised in three research groups, which can overlap to maximise synergies and resources: Photonics & CommunicationsEnergy Environmental and Bio - Sensing (EEBG)Visualization, Data, Modelling & Graphics (VDMG).
