Description of Extended Electrical and Electronic Engineering, BEng

Advertisement

This is a suite of programmes which have a common foundation year, after which students specialise in the subjects of their choice. The first year provides solid training in engineering, computing principles, science and systems modelling, as well as the necessary background and skills needed to cope with the engineering degree programme that follows.

The foundation year is intended for students who do not meet the normal entry criteria for an engineering degree but who have the interest and commitment to study engineering. It is ideally suited for applicants without the appropriate subjects for first-year entry into an engineering degree or for mature applicants with practical experience in engineering but without the formal academic qualifications.

Following the foundation year, students embark on one of a selection of three-year BEng Hons/BSc Hons programmes with an engineering or computer focus that are offered by the School of Engineering. A list of these is given in the key facts and further details can be found in individual programme entries in this prospectus.

Students select their chosen programme when they apply, but there is some scope to change programmes at the end of the foundation year. Progression from the foundation year is dependent on the students achieving the necessary grades.

Career options

The foundation year gives students access to a wide range of engineering degree programmes that would lead to employment prospects in a variety of engineering sectors.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

Requirements for Extended Electrical and Electronic Engineering, BEng

Applicants should have:

80 UCAS points for foundation year FROM

EITHER a National Certificate/Diploma

OR equivalent qualifications

PLUS at least three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English, mathematics and science) or equivalent qualifications.

Language skills

If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.
