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.

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.
