As an apprentice, you will enrol on a three-year BEng Electronic Engineering degree pathway that includes 28 weeks of teaching each academic year at our Colchester Campus. You will return to the workplace when not at university where your employer will provide further vocational learning outcomes in line with the Embedded Electronic Systems Design and Development Engineer Degree Apprenticeship Standard.
Course content and delivery
The course starts in October each year and is completed over three years through a mixture of on-campus and work-based learning. Apprentices will spend 28 weeks per year in lectures and classes at our Colchester Campus and the rest of the time in the workplace. You'll be assigned a workplace mentor to help you complete the workplace learning.
During your time with us we’ll train your apprentice in electronics and embedded systems, and how to apply them to the design of circuits and devices that:
- provide useful functions
- can be produced at competitive costs
- are reliable and safe to use
