Course summary

Engineering is an evolving sector that needs engineers with a wide variety of knowledge and skills. Our Engineering course will give you the foundations, key principles and professional skills you need in modern engineering and related industries. Our staff have significant industrial experience and use the latest learning and teaching technology.

In your second year you have the chance to do an optional industrial placement with your employer, an independently sourced placement or a paid placement through the Northants Engineering Training Partnership (NETP). Formed in 1988 as a limited company, the NETP is collaboration between The University of Northampton and local engineering companies, which provide paid placements opportunities for University students.

During your first year you will be introduced to the fundamental principles and concepts of engineering, along with knowledge and understanding of technical requirements and management issues. You will also cover design and analytical principles and materials science.

In the second year we will extend your knowledge and skills to more complex issues. We encourage you to work in an industrial setting so that you can work alongside professional, experienced engineers to solve real problems. We will work with the companies and oversee the work that you do to make sure you have the best possible learning environment. The industry experience will develop your problem-solving, teamwork and analytical skills and you will have the chance to use computer aided engineering software packages. Your second year will also include a substantial project to demonstrate everything that you’ve learned through the course.
