Coronavirus (COVID-19) update - Department of Electronic Engineering
The Department expects to be operating a full teaching schedule in 2020-21, whether on campus or online or a mix of the two, with flexible teaching to accommodate all students' circumstances, even if these change through the academic year. On all programmes, for new students and for those returning to York, we aim to retain our friendly atmosphere, personal contact and small-group teaching, whether or not you are here in person.

Welcome to the Department of Electronic Engineering, a department dedicated to world-leading research and teaching in Electronic Engineering. Our research groups play significant roles on the national and international stage, collaborating with major industries and securing funding from research councils. In the latest Research Excellent Framework assessment (2014), 87% of our work was assessed as world leading or internationally excellent.
With respect to our teaching, in the most recent NSS survey in 2018 we were ranked second in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction, and first for our teaching. We offer a wide range of degree programmes specifically designed to educate you to be a world class engineer and maximise your full potential.
