Why Engineering at Warwick?


But if you've had no exposure to engineering disciplines at school or college, deciding on a specialism may not be straightforward.

At Warwick, our flexible, innovative and interdisciplinary courses enable you to experience a range of different engineering disciplines before specialising in a specific area of engineering such as automotive, biomedical systems, civil, electronic, or mechanical engineering, to name but a few. Alternatively you can choose to study a more diverse engineering curriculum or adopt a business focus.

There are so many reasons to study Engineering at Warwick and recently we’ve been ranked:

  • 5th for General Engineering in the Guardian University League Table 2020

The 2019 National Student Survey also saw us rated with:

  • 87% overall satisfaction across all of our undergraduate courses
  • 2nd in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction on our Electronic, Electrical and Electronic, and Systems Engineering courses
  • 5th in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction on our Civil Engineering courses
  • Top 10 in the Russell Group for overall satisfaction on our Mechanical Engineering courses

As well as our strong reputation and the high quality of teaching and satisfaction our students experience, our courses are about giving you opportunities to expand your horizons and build meaningful connections. This is both as part of your degree – be that through joining societies, forming friendships, studying abroad or gaining work experience, and beyond, as we work hard to develop your industrial and entrepreneurial skills from day one preparing you for the whole range of careers you’ll find open to you when you graduate.

There really hasn’t been a better time to study Engineering at Warwick.

WUSAT-3 CubeSat Project

WUSAT-3 CubeSat Project

WUSAT is the University of Warwick Satellite Engineering Project. Every year, a group of fourth-year MEng students from the School of Engineering work together on the next stage of the project.

WUSAT-3's mission is to demonstrate wildlife tracking capability to support biologists and conservationists. As a proof of concept, it will detect signals from smart tags placed at several universities around the globe. The tag technology is similar to miniature devices used to monitor wildlife.
