The typical offer is likely to be:
SQA Highers: ABBB, or more if two sittings, to include Mathematics at Grade A; with Standard Grade Physics or Technological Studies at 2.
GCE A Levels: ABB, required in one sitting, to include Mathematics; with GCSE Science or Design & Technology at Grade B.
IB: 32 points overall and award of IB Diploma to include Mathematics Higher Level at Grade 5, plus two further Higher Level subjects at Grade 5. Diploma must include Physics or Design & Technology.
All applicants must also meet our general university entry requirements - including SQA, GCSE, or equivalent English language requirements.
For direct entry to second year the minimum requirements must be exceeded, including the following:
SQA Advanced Highers: AA to include Mathematics and one other subject, plus Highers at AB in two other subjects including Higher Physics, Engineering or Technological Studies.
GCE A Levels: A*AA, in one sitting, to include Mathematics and either Physics, Engineering or Design & Technology (excluding Food Technology), or AAA in one sitting to include Mathematics, Further Mathematics and either Physics, Engineering or Design & Technology (excluding Food Technology).
IB: 38 points overall and award of IB Diploma to include Mathematics Higher Level at Grade 6, Physics Higher Level or Design & Technology Higher Level at Grade 6, plus one further Higher Level subject at Grade 6.
Entry to many degrees in Science & Engineering is possible via other qualifications (eg HNC/D, Access, SWAP).
From low-power processors for mobile phone technology to heavy duty power electronics for wind turbines, the design of electronic and electrical systems is challenging and requires a clear understanding of both the physics and the broader system in which it operates, necessitating team work and the determination to find ingenious solutions. With advances in technology for medicine, efficiency in transportation, safety monitoring systems, surveillance, entertainment, wireless communications, manufacturing and computing, to name just a few areas, electronics and electrical engineering lead where others follow.
Our Industrial Liaison Board includes senior representatives from important electronics and electrical engineering companies and has influenced curriculum and programme development.
Our degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management provides graduates with a number of tools to facilitate the technical management of teams and projects.
