Course summary

**About This Course**Without engineering, how would society progress to solve the challenges of modern life? Engineers are responsible for seeking innovative solutions to complex global problems. They apply, devise and manufacture. Engineers have an incredibly significant role in shaping the future as we move forward into the next industrial revolution, Industrie 4.0.To prepare for the exciting engineering challenges of this future you could graduate as one of a new breed of highly versatile engineering graduates. This versatility is fostered through our philosophical approach to your academic development. Instead of merely working within the traditional boundaries of engineering, we will encourage you to explore various engineering disciplines to enable you to develop a systems approach to problem resolution.**Overview**The Foundation Year of our innovative course will arm you with the academic skills and knowledge-base that you’ll need to progress on to one of our engineering degrees. Designed to fill gaps in your knowledge, it will prepare you for life as an Engineering undergraduate.As well as focusing on the mathematical and scientific underpinning that you will require to support your engineering studies, your first year will present opportunities to support your wider study-skill development. In this way, you will gain the confidence you need to complete the year successfully and progress through your Engineering degree programme, be it a Bachelor’s or integrated Master’s course.Making a choice between a MEng or BEng course can be difficult. If you are unsure which course is right for you then don’t worry: you will be given advice before you begin studying and while you’re a student here. Advice will also be available to help you select the engineering pathway that fits your interests and aspirations. Transferring between pathways is straightforward until the end of your second year, but is still possible until the end of your third year because of the flexibility of our programme structures.If you like solving complex problems and are eager to participate in addressing the challenges of modern life, this course is ideally suited to you. It will show you the scope of engineering activity and the multi-faceted roles of engineers in our society, demonstrating their impact on aspects of our lives from the renewable systems that harness the power of the natural world to the digitisation that will drive our future economy.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
