Modern Undergraduate Programmes for 2021
This year we’ve been undertaking a review of our programmes to ensure that they will prepare you for life beyond 2030, 2040 or 2050. We have developed the modules we offer to enhance your student experience. The modern programmes have been designed in consultation with our students, staff and industry, and will reflect the global challenges facing both our society and your future as engineers.
You will learn how engineering theory is applied in real-life situations, and how engineering principles can be used to solve real-world problems. As part of our commitment to further enhance graduate employability, we will be introducing a graduate attributes matrix to help students develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed both personally and professionally. Using this matrix you will recognise and record the wide-ranging skills you develop over the duration of the programme, which will help you to reflect on what you want to do and effectively market yourself to future employers.
Our new practical approach will help to bring engineering concepts to life, placing student-centered learning, laboratory work, case studies and design, build and test at the heart of our programmes. In your first year you will build a strong foundation in fundamental engineering concepts such as fluid mechanics, design, materials and mathematical modelling, whilst being introduced to chosen specialised areas of engineering through our ‘Explore Engineering’ modules.
We’re excited to announce that we are now able to share the details of our revised first year modules.
