The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology

The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology is applying to the Office for Students for the powers to deliver and award its own degrees from September 2019; should these powers not be obtained, degrees will continue to be awarded by the University of Warwick. Students offered a place on the course will be informed of the outcome in good time, to help them decide whether to accept their place.​

The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology gives students hands-on experience as part of their Global Engineering team while studying for their degree from Warwick Manufacturing Group, University of Warwick. Students earn a competitive salary – and because Dyson covers all tuition fees, they could graduate debt-free.​

Fascinating Fact

  • To tackle the UK’s STEM skills shortage, Jo Johnson (former government minister for universities and science) challenged James Dyson to open a new kind of university at Dyson's technology campus in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. As a result, The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology opened to its first undergraduates in September 2017.
