Engineering at a glance

We offer a range of exciting, practical and professionally accredited specialist degrees.

Your first year will be a collaborative year, exploring all the core engineering disciplines, enabling you to identify your area of interest.

Your chosen specialism then forms the basis of your studies as you delve into the subject in greater depth, leading to a degree at BEng (3 years) or MEng (4 years) level.

We work with major UK and international industrial organisations, as well as smaller companies, ensuring our degrees are both relevant to the industrial and commercial imperatives of today, and fit for the needs of the future.

Our faculty crosses borders and encourages collaboration with scientists from across Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science.

We have a dedicated student engineering society, ExEng, who organise social and academic events throughout the year.
