Teaching and Learning …

FYGER projectOur teaching is by lectures, problem classes, tutorials, laboratory classes, computing, design and project work.

Project work is an important aspect of the course. Team and individual projects will take place at various stages throughout your studies and involve the analysis, design and construction of a variety of electronic and electrical systems.

Applying your knowledge

For example, our pioneering Sheffield Industrial Project Scheme (SHIPS) gives second year students the chance to work on real industrial problems in small teams.

In your third year you'll carry out an individual project, which can involve investigations at the forefront of current research.

MEng students carry out a group project in the fourth year, which is usually linked to another industrial problem.

And the global engineering challenge gives all first year students the chance to work in teams with other engineers across the Faculty of Engineering on real issues faced by developing communities.

A supportive community

During that all-important first year, our academic staff work closely with you to help you settle in and get used to studying at university. And throughout your course, you'll have a personal tutor who you can go to with any problems, academic or otherwise.

When it comes to your third-year project, you'll work alongside an academic supervisor from one of our research groups.
