Our Engineering degree with a foundation year allows you to build a solid foundation of the fundamentals before moving on to your specialist area of study in engineering. If you’d like to complete an engineering-based degree but your qualifications don’t meet the entry requirements for degree-level study, our Engineering with a Foundation Year programme could provide the perfect solution. The foundation year will give you a solid introduction to engineering and applied technology. It is ideal if you consider you would benefit from additional knowledge and experience before selecting a specific specialism in engineering. Alternatively, if you're considering a career change and don’t have the necessary background qualifications for a future in engineering, this entry point will help you achieve your ambitions. During the foundation year, you’ll have the chance to gain basic engineering knowledge and skills, as well as hands-on experience in our electronics, mechanical, automotive, aeronautical and product design labs. Students who successfully complete the Foundation year may automatically progress onto any of the following programmes: Aeronautical Technology, Automotive Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Medical Engineering, Motorsport Technology.
