Our Electronic and Communications Engineering double degree programme adopts the “4+0” study mode based at Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications (CQUPT) in China. This programme has been jointly developed by the Brunel University London and CQUPT. It aims to bring together the strengths of CQUPT in communications and Brunel in electronics to produce engineers who can take up leadership roles in industry with respect to the delivery of innovative 5G applications.
You’ll be taught in English to enable you to develop the English language skills required in the workplace right from the start of your course. The programme is delivered over four years, allowing time to include teaching focused exclusively on developing students’ command of English to a professional level, practising the four core skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The English language modules do not carry credits towards the degree award, but are essential for students to successfully complete assessments in English.
In year 4, a graduation project will be carried out in English with two supervisors one based at Brunel and the other at CQUPT. All students will be assigned a personal tutor to provide more individual support where necessary.
You will be introduced to communication engineering and gain deep knowledge of electronics and communication systems. You’ll learn about electronic systems and computer architecture and then progress to advanced electronics and digital communication systems. The programme provides a coherent curriculum through which problem solving, professional development and transferable skills required to work in electronic and communications engineering and related industries are developed.
You will be enrolled into both the British and Chinese universities. As a result, you’ll gain the undergraduate diploma and bachelor's degree certificate from CQUPT and the Electronic and Communication Engineering BEng degree from Brunel University London, UK.
The entry criteria is based on the results of the National College Entrance Examination (NCEE) of China and detailed information can be found on this link: http://international.cqupt.edu.cn/info/1137/1985.htm
