Engineering with a Foundation Year

**About This Course** Engineers are at the forefront of the current revolution that will change the ways in which society operates potentially faster than it has ever changed before. The digital revolution is shaping the future and you have the opportunity to play your part in this period of rapid development. To prepare for the exciting engineering challenges of this future you could graduate as one of a new breed of versatile engineering graduates, possessing the capacity to find solutions to society’s biggest challenges. We aim to produce pioneering graduates, capable of supporting a changing industry through their intellectual flexibility. After consolidating your strength in science and mathematics, we will provide you with integrated learning opportunities to support the development of hard engineering knowledge and skills, around engineering principles and theories, as well as soft engineering skills that might be needed when dealing with clients, teamwork skills, and the opportunity to form connections with industry. **Overview** The Foundation Year of our innovative course will arm you with the academic skills and knowledge-base that you’ll need to progress on to one of our engineering degrees. Designed to fill gaps in your knowledge, it will prepare you for life as an Engineering undergraduate. As well as focusing on the mathematical and scientific underpinning that you will require to support your engineering studies, your first year will present opportunities to support your wider study-skill development. In this way, you will gain the confidence you need to complete the year successfully and progress through your Engineering degree programme, be it a Bachelor’s or integrated Master’s course. Making a choice between a MEng or BEng course can be difficult. If you are unsure which course is right for you then don’t worry: you will be given advice before you begin studying and while you’re a student here. Advice will also be available to help you select the engineering pathway that fits your interests and aspirations. Transferring between pathways is straightforward until the end of your second year, but is still possible until the end of your third year because of the flexibility of our programme structures. If you like solving complex problems and are eager to participate in addressing the challenges of modern life, this course is ideally suited to you. It will show you the scope of engineering activity and the multi-faceted roles of engineers in our society, demonstrating their impact on aspects of our lives from the renewable systems that harness the power of the natural world to the digitisation that will drive our future economy. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
