Year 1
Your time will usually be divided between engineering, mathematics and option courses. You study several branches of engineering, followed by the first in-depth study of your preferred subject.

For most of our programmes you can choose an option from the sciences, arts or humanities. Chemical engineering students must take chemistry in Year 1.

Year 2
You will study your chosen branch of engineering, supported by classes in mathematics. You will extend the application of your scientific and mathematical skills to solving engineering problems, building on your experiences from Year 1.

Year 3
You will now focus on your chosen field of engineering. At the end of Year 3, you will have the option of completing one more year for a BEng (Hons) or a further two years for an MEng.

Year 4
You will concentrate on specialist study and innovative assessment that will prepare you for your professional career. Increasingly you will spend time on individual or group design projects.
