Having gained an invaluable grounding in mathematics and engineering in your first year, in your second year you will go on to develop your learning by following a path in general, mechanical or electronic and electrical engineering. Spend your third year working with a company related to your chosen discipline, before returning to complete your degree in the fourth year. A year in industry is a great way to hone your skills, gain real-world experience and make contacts, and has proved as popular with students as it has with employers. In your final year you will put your knowledge into action with an in-depth individual project based on your engineering interests. This project is important in defining your path towards a specific career. Your project could be an experimental research project, a practical construction, a circuit assembly, a programmable controller or something else. You could even draw on the industry contacts you’ve made throughout the course and link your study to a real-world engineering problem. Project management skills are embedded in this course, and you will also gain an understanding of commercial risks and opportunities. This degree is fully supported by the New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering network (NAAME) and Hethel Innovation Group, which gives you access to a wide range of leading mechanical, electronic and automotive companies.
