Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The world is changing rapidly, and many societies across the globe are facing multiple complex challenges including changing climates, increasing populations and resource depletion. Engineers are the skilled problem solvers who can develop the products and systems to meet the evolving needs of future generations.

Ongoing advances in computing power and the increasing use of integrated systems that link mechanical, electrical and other engineering systems together is creating new industrial sectors that cut across the boundaries of traditional engineering programmes.

Our BEng Engineering degree offers students a broad education in fundamental engineering techniques with the opportunity for specialisation, offering a high degree of flexibility in choosing an exciting career path within a range of both traditional and emerging engineering sectors. Recognising that technical skill is only one part of the new engineer's toolkit, this degree will help graduates to navigate both technical innovation and organisational change.

The course aims to encourage graduates to become ethical engineers who understand their impact on the world and its impact on them. With the UK economy already in transition to zero net Carbon by 2050, companies need graduates need to understand their responsibility in managing the three pillars of sustainability (society, environment and economy). To help achieve this, we have a core global sustainability and management thread, drawing from expertise in other Colleges and our strategic partner Texas A&M University.
