The new suite of level 8 Engineering programmes offers great flexibility. The common entry allows students to understand where their true passion lies before specialising from Year Two.
This programme offers students an introduction into a wide range of engineering disciplines. Our suite of Civil, Mechanical, Electronics & Self Driving Technologies and Robotics & Automation all have common first year modules, giving students a taste of each engineering discipline before having to commit to which area of engineering they wish to specialise in from Year Two.
Civil Engineering is a dynamic industry, which is continuously evolving and changing. Civil Engineering is about creating, improving and protecting the environmentin which we live. Most people would be surprised by how much Civil Engineering affects their daily lives – from the water that you drink, to the school that you attend, to the energy that powers your mobile phone.
This is a modern programme that prepares students for a broad range of career choices, some of which may not yet even exist, in the fields of mechanical and manufacturing engineering. Through a combination of theory, practicals, and workshops, students gain up to date knowledge of engineering principals, and learn how to apply these to solve real world problems. Students will also be asked to consider issues such as ethics and sustainability.
Electronics & Self Driving Technologies
The BEng (Hons) in Electronics and Self-Driving Technologies programme aims to prepare students to work in rapidly changing technology environments, in areas such as robotics/autonomous systems, computer vision, machine learning and extended realities. The up-and-coming area of autonomous devices (cars, trucks, forklifts, etc.) is an obvious fit for graduates of this course. The mix for theoretical and practical aspects of the programme will provide students with an understanding of the multidisciplinary engineering concepts required to progress future design in areas that requires skills in electronic, mechanical, mechatronics and embedded systems engineering.
Robotics and Automation
Robotics and Automation (also commonly known as the field of Mechatronics) is the combination of mechanical, electronic, robotic and software engineering systems that are used in modern manufacturing industries.
Robotics and Automation equips graduates with the skills to work in high-tech manufacturing industries and is becoming one of the fastest growing career areas. Robotics and Automation engineers design, build and operate intelligent machines such as the robots and flexible manufacturing systems of today and for tomorrow.
