This page describes the course as presented under normal circumstances. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and current uncertainty around large gatherings, it’s currently necessary to replace the residential schools described with directed practical work and activities that you’ll carry out at home and online. These changes will remain in force for as long as the pandemic prevents residential schools from taking place. Therefore, whether you attend a residential school (as described below) or carry out the practical work/activities will depend on when you undertake the affected modules.
This general engineering qualification fulfils the educational requirements for Incorporated Engineer status. The combination of this degree and an accredited MSc fulfils the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer status. Engineering is a creative and analytical subject. You’ll develop the skills, techniques, concepts and knowledge needed by professional engineers, underpinned by science and mathematics. The course has a common core with a choice of routes to suit your area of interest. You’ll work on real-life projects to create innovative solutions to challenging problems. You’ll team up with other students and work on your own projects.
