is the the right course for me?

Hi all
I am thinking of going back to School, well UNI as a mature student. I have been looking at different courses to do but wanted some advice before going any further.
About me
I have always been into computers and I am a Microsoft engineer and technician. I am also a qualified further education tutor. I have always been interested in electronics on a basic level. What I want to do is put both of these together (computers and electronics).
I have built a model railroad (for the kids) that is fully automated using of the shelf gizmos and a pc with an interface. My other hobby is reptiles, keeping and breeding.
My end goal is to be able to design, create and build these gizmos that will talk to a PC.
In the world of reptiles there is nothing to my knowledge that will fully automate a complete climate within a vivarium via a PC. I would like to have the knowledge to be able to design the gizmo that will do this.
The course I have been looking at is this
Electrical and Electronic Engineering BEng (Hons)
if anyone could give me some advice on this it would be appreciated.
