Engineering Foundation (General)

This Foundation Year has been designed to give you an excellent route into studying engineering. Perhaps you’re fascinated by engineering, but have never formally studied the subject. Or you may have decided on a career change. It could also be ideal if you do not have the usual academic qualifications to study at degree level. The Foundation Year isn’t a stand-alone course, but makes up the first year of your studies leading to a BEng or MEng degree in our Electronic or Mechanical Engineering course suites at Huddersfield. To go on to a degree, you must gain an average mark of 50%, and have passed each component of your Foundation Year. On the Foundation Year you’ll have the chance to develop the academic knowledge and explore skills you need to obtain a BEng(Hons). We’ll cover mathematics and engineering science, and we’ll also introduce you to electronic, electrical and mechanical engineering. By looking at each discipline in turn, we give you the flexibility to try new things and decide which degree is right for you. During your studies you’ll have the chance to develop a range of transferable skills, including research, report writing and presentations. All these skills could prove useful in any career.
