Course summary

Want to study electrical and electronic engineering at Newcastle but don't meet the entry requirements? Take a foundation year to develop the knowledge you need to progress to one of our three or four-year electrical and electronic engineering degrees.

Course overview

If you don't have mathematics and/or science at the appropriate level to apply for our Engineering degrees, this course is for you. If you have proven ability in other subjects, it gives you the opportunity to develop the knowledge you need to apply to an engineering degree here.

This course is also appropriate if you have technical or vocational qualifications or are from a different educational system.

You will study topics such as:

  • foundation mathematics
  • applied mechanics
  • material science

On successful completion of your foundation year you are guaranteed entry to an engineering degree programme at Newcastle.

Teaching methods

You'll learn from staff across various departments of our engineering and science schools. You'll spend approximately 20 hours per week in taught classes, and a further 20 hours attending tutorials and completing laboratory reports.

You'll be taught through a combination of:

  • lectures
  • lab sessions
  • tutorials
  • real-world case studies

Up to 10 hours will be spent in practical sessions, working on experiments and project work in the labs.

Your future

Electrical and electronic engineers are in high demand in the UK and further afield.

When you graduate, you'll have opportunities in areas such as electrical supply and distribution, power systems, transports, and electrical machinery.

Recent graduates have secured roles as graduate engineers in companies including:

  • Dyson
  • Siemens
  • Arup
  • IQHQ
  • BBC
  • BT

You'll also develop a wide range of transferable skills, including analytical skills, teamwork, time management, and IT skills, which are valued by employers across all sectors.
