Entry to many degrees in Science & Engineering is possible via other qualifications (eg HNC/D, Access, SWAP).
The Electrical & Mechanical Engineering joint honours degree combines teaching from the Electronics & Electrical Engineering discipline with that from Mechanical Engineering, to create a joint degree covering the important area of electromechanical systems that is increasingly prevalent in today’s world.
This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
Our Electronics & Electrical Engineering students are eligible for two scholarship schemes that provide additional financial support.
One scheme comprises a pool of scholarships provided by a number of companies, and the other is through the UK Electronics Skills Foundation (UKESF) of which Edinburgh is a member along with other UK universities with a strong electronics profile.
