Electrical Engineering - IOT

Our Institute of Technology (IOT) programmes have been designed and created in collaboration with employers, colleges, and universities to develop the talent and skills of our students - enabling them to be work-ready with clear career progression.

The IOT Electrical Engineering programmes 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.

Each day we experience the effects of the fourth industrial revolution. The world is changing at an ever-increasing speed. We see the effects of these changes all around us from drones developed to deliver our shopping to autonomous driverless vehicles being tested on our motorways. 

Our BSc Electrical Engineering degree has three optional pathways: Control and Network Connected Devices, Sustainable Energy, and Production Automation. Each pathway is designed to introduce our students to the latest technology available to prepare them for an active and rewarding career. In all three pathways we include current and emerging technologies such as Electrical, Electronic and Control Technologies, Internet of Things (internet connected devices), Networking and Supervisor Control.

IOT Electrical Engineering Courses Available:

  • BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Control and Network Connected Devices) Level 6 
  • BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Production Automation) Level 6 
  • BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Sustainable Energy) Level 6 


Watch our quick video to learn more about these courses:


The Lincolnshire Institute of Technology (IOT) is a collaboration between the University of Lincoln and Further Education providers across Greater Lincolnshire.

The IOT specialises in delivering high quality technical education across industries with a focus on Engineering, Digital, Automotive, Manufacturing, and Constructions subjects, opening up opportunities for students to gain industry-relevant skills to overcome some of the key challenges facing the technical industries.

The courses have been designed to develop the essential skills and experience needed for a range of pathways to ensure learners complete their training career-ready.

At Lincoln College, we have a range of Level 4, 5 and 6 coures covering three IOT pathways:

A multi-million-pound investment has been made to refurbish our oldest Grade II listed Gibney building to house the IOT.

It has been designed to replicate the latest progressive working environments.

We have also equipped all of our workshops and classrooms with the latest IT hardwadware, computing, electrical engineering and automotive engineering equipment.

View below some photos of the newy-refurbished Gibney building:

Our BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering degree has three optional pathways: Control and Network Connected Devices, Sustainable Energy, and Production Automation.

Below are some examples showing possible careers that each pathway aims to support.


BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Control and Network Connected Devices) Level 6 

The sector of Control and Network Connected Devices covers general control approaches alongside developments in Internet of Things (internet connected devices) and device networking which can be applied over a diverse range of connected devices.

The Control and Network Connected Devices pathway could enable learners to go on to possible careers in:

  • Remote vehicle tracking/GPS/connected smart vehicle technologies
  • Warehouse and factory stock control and tracking
  • Automated robotics e.g. distribution warehouses
  • Remote telemetry e.g. motor racing performance measurements
  • Smart electricity meters
  • Internet of things (internet-connected and SMART devices)

With job roles such as: Industrial Networking Engineer, Control Engineer, Agriculture Technologist, Production Automation Specialist, Data Communication, Engineering. Salaries when fully qualified could range from £35k-£40k. Local employers could include; Order wise, Team Know How, Krypto Cloud, Fairfield and more.


BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Production Automation) Level 6 

The Production Technology sector considers current automation, robotics system, small/rapid production and prototyping technologies and explores how these can be best monitored and managed by applying the boarder technologies studied.

Our Production Automation pathway could enable learners to have careers in:

  • Manufacture, assembly, product testing and shipping
  • Robotics
  • Food process control
  • Food processing and handling machinery
  • Agri Tech


BSc (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Sustainable Energy) Level 6 

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 Sustainable Energy pathway could allow learners to go on to possible careers in:

  • Smart electricity metering and connected smart grid
  • Photovoltaic generation
  • North Sea wind
  • Nuclear
  • Electrical energy distribution
  • Large scale electrical energy storage
