Content

Year 1: In your first year you will take courses in mathematics and study engineering fundamentals including applied mechanics, fluid mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics and properties of materials. These courses will form a solid foundation for development later in the degree programme and are supported by individual drawing and practical skills and group project and laboratory work.

Year 2: In your second year you will study further basic engineering subjects including applicable mathematics, applied mechanics, electrical power engineering, engineering computing, materials, power electronics, thermodynamics and design and manufacture.

Year 3: You will study more advanced engineering subjects in third year: Engineering design; dynamics, control and fluid power; heat transfer; design and manufacture; materials and manufacture; mathematical modelling and simulation; mechanics of materials and structures.

Years 4 and 5: In year 4 of the BEng programme, students undertake an individual design project and a group design project. A range of subjects are offered, including robotics, advanced materials, vibration, microelectronics, mechanics of solids and thermal engineering. Year 4 MEng students undertake further design projects including a multidisciplinary project. Year 5 of the MEng programme includes the final-year industrial project, and provides additional management skills and in-depth options of engineering subjects including mechanics of solids, dynamics and desalination technology.
