Course summary

The Foundation Programme provides a thorough grounding in the fundamental subjects necessary for you to become a respected and successful engineer or applied scientist. Engineering covers a wide range of disciplines and a unique feature of this programme is the opportunity for you to have a ‘taste’ of mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, electronic engineering and computer science. These ‘tasters’ will enable you to make an informed decision as to which career in engineering or applied science you would like to follow. In the second semester, you will study the discipline you chose at the end of the first semester in greater depth to prepare you for your degree studies.Progression into all Engineering and Applied Sciences undergraduate degree programmes is possible through this programme, if you meet some course related criteria.
