Course overview

We’ve designed this degree to enable you to develop a strong base of engineering knowledge, with real practical application. You are taught all aspects of technology across motors, fluid dynamics, separation systems, energy storage, robotics and software.

Alongside theoretical knowledge, the programme will develop your applied skills, such as prototyping and computer aided design. You learn about engineering through hands-on experience at work that underpins and complements the academic learning.

Course structure

In the first two years, you will study six general engineering modules per year.

In the final two years you will have the option to specialise in Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Hardware, Electronic Software or Electro-Mechanical Engineering*. We will guide you through the specialisation pathways and optional subjects to find the best route for each individual.

*subject to university approval.
