Course summary

This Foundation Year is an alternative route onto our Engineering, Computing, Construction, Environmental and Electronics degree programmes. It is designed to allow students to gain the skills required to progress to our BSc/BEng programmes.

WISA is a multidisciplinary faculty, covering architecture, automotive and motorsport engineering, built environment, computing, electronics, environmental conservation, logistics and mechanical and manufacturing engineering.

Course Overview

UWTSD has a long history of "Reaching Wider" and we appreciate the challenges that students can face, often through no fault of their own. We also appreciate the challenges presented to individuals wishing to change career. This programme is intended to address and resolve any deficiencies in students' skills in order to meet the entry requirements for our degree.

We have a friendly team of academics who are dedicated to the well-being and academic progress of our students and offer excellent support to students on this Foundation Year.

Assessment

Our aim is to generate work that is mainly student-driven, individual, reflective and vocationally-orientated. Feedback to students will occur early in the study period and continue over the whole study session thereby allowing for greater value added to the student’s learning.

UWTSD has a principle of purchasing industry-standard facilities. Examples include our 5 axis CNC machining centre, Composites Autoclave, Engine dynamometers, Thermographic cameras, GIS mapping systems, and leading software from Solidworks, Siemens NX, ANSYS Fluent, Mapinfo, MATLAB, AutoCAD and many other specialist applications.

It is a principle of the university that students have access to all facilities. This principle often generates exciting cross-disciplinary project work.
