Course content

Our MEng Engineering programme allows you to experience the different areas of engineering before deciding which programme to follow. Collaborative modules in your first year will give you a broad knowledge across all core engineering disciplines.

The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.

The multidisciplinary ethos of the first year builds core theoretical and practical knowledge in all engineering disciplines, giving you the opportunity to specialise from your second year. A year-long multidisciplinary group project provides a means of putting core knowledge into practice.

On progression from first to second year you will have the opportunity to specialise in one of the disciplines introduced in your first year:

You will study a number of core modules and, depending upon your choice of specialism, select additional optional modules to complete the year's credits and complement your chosen discipline.

The modules studied in your third and fourth years will further develop your specialism. You will have the freedom to direct your studies, as you choose a larger number of the modules complementing the core teaching of the course. Some programmes will require that you undertake a group or individual project at this stage.

Learning and teaching

You’ll typically have between 15 and 32 hours of direct contact time per week with your tutors and you will be expected to supplement your lectures with independent study. You should expect your total workload to average about 40 hours per week during term time.

In addition to lectures you’ll also have access to our workshops and laboratories where you’ll be trained to use specialist equipment, supporting and developing what you’ve learnt in the classroom and enabling you to put what you’ve learnt into practice.

A research and practice led culture

All our academic staff are internationally-recognised scientists working across a wide range of topics. Your course will draw on the very latest ideas, research discoveries and new technologies in the field. You’ll be able to participate directly with current research at various stages throughout your degree.

Assessment

Modules are assessed by a combination of continuous assessment through small practical exercises, project work, essay writing, presentations and exams. You must pass your first year assessment in order to progress to the second year, but the results do not count towards your degree classification.

Project work is a core element of this degree, providing invaluable experience of problem-solving, engineering design and team working. Projects are typically industrially driven, are commercially relevant and often directly involve a company.

Your future

Our graduates are now working for major international organisations in a diverse range of sectors, or have successfully launched their own companies.

Engineers have a reputation as being articulate, numerate, problem solvers, who claim great job satisfaction. Typically, salaries are significantly higher for engineering graduates than the average for other graduates.

Exeter has an excellent reputation with graduate recruiters and a strong employment record. Our graduates excel in specialist engineering fields and across a broad range of other sectors. We offer a very wide range of opportunities for you to develop the skills employers are looking for.

Employer visits

Throughout your degree you will have the opportunity to meet with graduate employers. Professional engineers visit the university to hold mock interviews, allowing you to discuss your career opportunities at an early enough stage to inform your choice of modules and placement decisions.
