The BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Sustainable Energy) degree programme is delivered as part of Lincoln College's involvement in the Lincolnshire Institute of Technology.
The Sustainable Energy sector covers conventional and sustainable energy sources as well as energy distribution and usage to explore how these can be best monitored and managed by applying the broader generic technologies studies.
The Lincolnshire IOT has invested heavily in sector specific equipment and software in order for this course to provide students with high level applied skills relevant to the diverse Sustainable Energy sector.
Typical Course Structure
- Electrical and Mechanical Principles
- Maths for Engineers

Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (IOT)
The Institutes of Technology (IOT) have been formed across England to enhance the career and employment chances of young people and adults.
The IOT Electrical Engineering programmes at Lincoln College are aimed to develop engineers with a broad understanding of Electrical Engineering or Control Engineering applied to the current and emerging technologies and issues of the Electrical Power/Sustainable Energy sector, the Production Technology sector and the Control via connected devices sector. Students on these courses spend a significant time working with industry-standard equipment in our new facility located in the Gibney building.
