This interdisciplinary course is perfect if you’re interested in all aspects of engineering but you don’t want to decide on a specialism just yet. But there is another compelling reason to choose this route: Graduates with expertise in more than one area are in demand because they’re flexible. They bring extra insight to projects. They work very well in teams because they see the bigger picture. The course structure is straightforward and solid. In the first two years, you will get a grounding in these areas of engineering: aerospace, biological, chemical, civil, electrical, energy and sustainability, materials, mechanical, software and systems. In the third and fourth years, you can either specialise in one of them or continue to study multiple disciplines. Practical experience, learning how to be an engineer, is part of the curriculum at every level. Our students work on research led by academics, and on group design and build projects. Everyone takes part in the faculty’s Global Engineering Challenge, a team exercise designed to make you a better professional. Spending a year on work placement extends your course to five years, so it takes commitment. But the benefits are considerable. You’ll make contacts and see first-hand how knowledge translates into real-world applications. The experience gives you a head start in the jobs market. And you’ll be paid a salary for that year.
