Programme Brief

The BEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Technology, awarded by the University of Greenwich, is structured to provide a viable final year, top-up option to graduates of the Higher National Diploma (HND) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme offered at SBCS.

Students with only a CSEC or CXC qualification are required to first complete our Diploma in Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Technology and then our Higher National Diploma (HND) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering programmes before entering the final year of this degree. 

This programme was designed to provide students with a broad range of skills for using equipment and techniques, and to be able to apply these skills to real life practical situations. As an engineer, you will play a significant role from development and testing through to manufacturing and maintenance.
