This degree develops high-calibre engineers who are able to function both as an engineer and a technology leader in sectors such as aerospace, marine, automotive, alternative energy, oil and gas, and other high-tech industries.
Industry-seasoned academics, practitioners and guest speakers deliver your practical training in our state-of-the-art Design & Engineering Innovation Centre, giving you the knowledge and skills required to understand the behaviour, performance and limitations of new technologies, in addition to modelling and simulating the performance of technologies.
As well as giving you a solid grounding in engineering, the course will provide an inspirational insight into emerging technologies within the sector and how to apply them to real-world situations. It also includes a career-affirming minimum 30-week period in a work placement, which will help you to make contacts and boost your potential within the profession.
In your final year you will exhibit your project at our annual Festival of Design & Engineering, giving potential employers an insight into how your work could make a difference in the future. Many students’ projects are as a result of industry collaboration resulting from practical issues experienced during their placement year.
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED), this degree fully meets the academic standards of Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and Chartered Engineer (CEng), which means you can apply for CEng status after gaining suitable experience in an engineering role.
This is an integrated Master’s degree; we also offer a BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering which can be completed in three or four years (including placement).
