Programme structure

Your course in brief

Year 1

We cover the foundations needed for an engineering degree from essential maths through study skills, electronics and embedded systems. In many of the modules you will be hands-on in laboratories learning through practice.

Year 2

You will work across three distinct disciplines: power & renewables, communications and electronics to provide a clear baseline for your pathway selection in the following years. Moreover, you will learn how to work more formally in groups on an engineering project.

Year 3

Optional placement year in industry. This year is an excellent opportunity to gain something extra for your CV, the real-world application and development of your skills and knowledge from industry experience.

Year 4

This year allows you to tailor your degree to your interests, based around power and renewables, communications or electronics. Your individual engineering project will allow you to demonstrate your abilities from a practical, technical and analytical perspective.

Career opportunities
