Description

This is a suite of programmes which have a common foundation year, after which you may 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 those 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 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 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.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To provide you with a well structured, relevant, enjoyable learning experience with a view to enhance student satisfaction, motivation and progression
  • To equip you with an awareness of engineering professions with a view to enabling informed choice of educational and career paths
  • To develop interpersonal and multi-disciplinary team-working skills with a view to facilitating effective participation in engineering project planning, management, design, and implementation
  • To develop appreciation of the relevance of mathematics to engineering disciplines and develop fundamental knowledge and skills enabling you to produce concise solutions to fundamental engineering mathematical problems.
