Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


If you don’t have the usual scientific or mathematical background for an engineering degree, a foundation year is for you.

After successfully completing the foundation, which has modules in chemistry, mathematics and physics, you can start one of our BEng or MEng degrees.

Programme structure

The modules listed below are examples from the last academic year. There may be some changes before you start your course. For the very latest module information, check with the department direct.

Core modules:

Core Foundation Mathematics
Introduction to Engineering
Foundations of Physics
Further Foundation Mathematics
The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers.

In the event of any change we’ll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.

Career opportunities

Well-qualified engineering graduates are in high demand. We provide hands-on, tailored careers planning and guidance. There are career opportunities at managerial and specialist technical levels, and in consultancy.

Our graduates have gone on to work in aerospace design, aviation, transport, manufacturing, finance, energy and power, and the armed forces. Some continue to further study or research. Employers include Airbus, BAE Systems, BP, Ernst and Young, Jaguar Land Rover, Ministry of Defence, Nissan, Rolls-Royce, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Royal Air Force and Shell.
