Course Summary

This is for you if... you want to build a broad base of engineering knowledge, taking modules from the full range of engineering subjects.Professional engineers have a high degree of specialist knowledge but increasingly they use a broad approach to problem solving across a range of engineering disciplines. This is coupled with an awareness of environmental, social, legal, economic and regulatory aspects of the problem at hand. Unlike some other universities, Engineering at Leicester has always been viewed as a unified subject and all engineering research and teaching staff belong to a single department. This has significant advantages for our graduates who leave here familiar with a broad range of topics and techniques in electrical, electronic, mechanical and software engineering. While this is an advantage to all our courses it provides a special quality to our General Engineering degrees. You will take control, computing, management and courses from the electrical, mechanical and other streams. These are carefully selected to provide overall coherence and balance, ensuring a good foundation for interdisciplinary projects in a wide range of professions. A degree in General Engineering is particularly recommended if you are considering a career in biomedical engineering, engineering consultancy, control engineering, sensors and data processing, patenting or a non-engineering profession.
