Course structure of MEng & BEng
This course will provide you with a broad knowledge of engineering disciplines, from nanotechnology to civil engineering infrastructure.
During your first two years you will study specially developed modules designed to introduce you to the breadth of engineering and to develop creative problem-solving skills in an interdisciplinary context.
At the end of Level 2 you will choose your specialisation from one of eleven degree pathways, covering all engineering disciplines. You will spend Year 3 and Year 4 studying your chosen specialism.
You will be taught a range of fundamental engineering principles that will equip you with a strong foundation of engineering knowledge. You will study subjects including:
You will build on the engineering foundations developed in Year 1 and develop your project design skills. You will study subjects including:
|Levels 3 & 4||
Levels 3 & 4
You will spend Year 3 (MEng and BEng) and Year 4 (MEng only) studying your chosen specialism.
The academic year
The academic year runs from September to June each year. The year is divided into two semesters - Autumn (Semester 1) and Spring (Semester 2) - each consisting of 12 teaching weeks followed by three examination weeks. In an academic year you will study modules with a total value of 120 credits. The majority of modules will be examined at the end of Spring Semester, although some will be examined in Autumn.
Year in Industry
All of our degree specialisations are offered with a Year in Industry option. Students on these programmes will spend the year between their third and fourth years working in industry.
A number of Engineering programmes delivered by our Faculty are accredited by a number of world recognised professional bodies.
For the MEng, it is intended that the exit awards of the MEng Engineering programme will be accredited by the relevant accreditation bodies.
The process of securing accreditation is ongoing.
