£6.5m investment programme in our teaching labs, workshop spaces and equipment.

Industry experience available to all students through summer placements or Year in Industry

Engineering at Exeter combines science, creativity and critical thinking to drive innovation and change in response to some of society’s biggest challenges.

We teach the full breadth of Engineering with classic options in Mechanical, Civil and Electronic, as well as the addition of Entrepreneurship and Management pathways that link Engineering with Business. A core first year gives you the reassurance and flexibility that you have made the right choice in your specialism.

We prioritise a hands-on approach to learning with a focus upon practical project work. We’ll support you in developing a creative, confident and logical approach to problem solving, making you a highly valued graduate and opening doors to a wide range of exciting careers.

The best thing about my course is that it’s allowed me to complete an industrial placement during my summer break.

I’ve gained vital work experience while having it count towards my degree, relieving the pressure on my final year and giving me a taste of life after university.
