Modules

Find out about our types of undergraduate degrees, their structure, modules and credits

Core modules

    Autumn teaching
    Spring teaching

    These modules are running in the academic year 2018/19. We also plan to offer them in future academic years. They may become unavailable due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of such changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

    You gain a good grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, looking at topics including electrical circuits and devices, engineering mathematics, and programming for engineers.

    Global Design Challenge

    You join all first-year students in the School of Engineering and Informatics in a team-based, week-long activity, the Global Design Challenge. Each team designs a solution to a problem faced by a community in the developing world. You develop transferable skills, benefiting both your studies and your future employability.

      You cover topics such as:

      • fluid mechanics
      • mechanics of robots and CAD
      • embedded systems
      • industrial automation mechatronics.

      You continue to develop your mathematics knowledge.

      You also study and develop key professional skills – project management, technical communication and professional ethics.

      Study abroad (optional)

      Employers value graduates who have negotiated their way in the world, experienced different cultures and developed an international perspective.

      You can choose to study abroad for a term or for a full year, depending on your course. We offer a huge range of destinations across Asia, Australia, Europe and North, Central and South America. Find out where your course could take you.

      Study abroad in Europe is supported through the Erasmus+ scheme, a European Commission initiative. As an Erasmus+ student, you can usually benefit from non-means-tested grants. Find out more at Erasmus+.

      Industrial placement (optional)

      We offer you the chance to take an industrial placement year as part of your course. The industrial placement provides you with the opportunity to spend a year working in industry, in an area relevant to your course, and to receive a salary.

      Your time in industry develops your technical, team-working and transferable skills as you apply what you have learned in your studies to a business environment.

      A year in industry is a proven way to fast-track your career and both the Department of Engineering and Design and the University’s Careers and Employability Centre provide you with dedicated placement support. This includes guided preparation early in your course to help you find, secure and succeed in your placement.

      Many students who undertake an industrial placement perform better academically on their return to their course and are more likely to secure employment as a direct result of their year in industry.
