During your first two years you'll learn about:
- workshop practice
- experimental methods
- data analysis
- prototype build of design projects
- common engineering machines
In your third year, you'll put your knowledge into practice. The second semester is dedicated to an industry-sponsored group business and design project. This helps you develop your technical, design, teamwork, financial planning, management and marketing skills.
The second semester of your final year of study is devoted to an individual project, where you can focus on a specialist topic. You can choose a subject you find interesting, industry-sponsored research associated with your placement year, or an engineering project based on research our postgraduates and academics are doing.
Because projects are central to your degree, we celebrate the culmination of your hard work in an annual Design and Project Exhibition. This is a chance for you to showcase your portfolio to industry guests, your peer group, and the department.
