Inspired by the Royal Academy of Engineering, this in-depth course aims to develop high-calibre engineers who can lead complex engineering projects that are vital to modern society.
After a broad, common first year, students can choose to specialise in mechanical, aerospace or civil engineering, studying technical units alongside students from these other engineering degrees.
The third year is a paid placement in industry, which forms an assessed part of the course and is closely monitored by the University, allowing you to start working towards becoming a Chartered Engineer. You will be given similar levels of responsibility as graduate entrants, with opportunities to manage your own projects.
In years four and five you can choose from a wide range of technical modules from the Departments of Aerospace, Civil and Mechanical Engineering, as well as open units from Engineering or other faculties. This gives you the chance to gain further technical expertise in your chosen specialisation and a broader learning experience in other subjects, such as computer science, finance, geography or languages.
A group research and design project forms a major component of your final two years. The project is conducted with one of our industrial partners and you can choose from a range of topics covering areas such as robotics, manufacturing, renewable energy, future cities and sustainable transport.
