Course summary

The BEng (Hons) Integrated Engineering course at the University of Plymouth is an interdisciplinary engineering degree for the digital age. It will provide you with the skills and competences needed to operate effectively as a modern professional engineer across traditional boundaries. To do this the course draws on expertise from across the School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics with a range of modules that include civil and mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, robotics engineering, and computing and mathematics. The enhanced benefits and key features of studying this degree, in contrast to single-discipline courses, are;

  • The development of key transferable critical-thinking skills and the synthesis and integration of engineering competencies.
  • The acquisition of greater interdisciplinary knowledge leading to greater engineering creativity.
  • The opportunity to undertake worthwhile project work across traditional engineering discipline boundaries.
  • Enhanced and consolidated understanding developed from the blending of ideas associated with different engineering disciplines so leading to better problem solving skills and increased professional flexibility.
  • Improved employment opportunities on graduation to meet the future skills challenges presented by Industry 4.0.


In the first year of your Integrated Engineering course, you will study alongside other engineering students from across the school to learn the fundamental engineering principles which will underpin the subjects you choose to study later in the course. You will develop your mathematical and computing skills and will enhance your engineering knowledge by studying additional topics chosen from civil and mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, and robotics engineering. You will also learn about generic design and computer-aided design processes. Laboratory sessions will form an important part of your learning. In the second year you will begin to develop and consolidate your chosen engineering study direction. Here you will choose modules from civil and mechanical engineering or from electrical and electronic engineering, robotics engineering and computing. The modules you choose to study in the second year is flexible but must sensibly align with those you studied in the first year. You can decide to do an optional industrial placement during your third year of your studies. In preparation for this you must attend a suitable placement preparation module during stage 2. Doing an industrial placement will allow you to integrate and consolidate your learning from your first and second years in a meaningful way. In addition, by taking the opportunity to spend an optional year in paid employment whilst still a student engineer, you will obtain recordable professional experience, build a network of industry contacts and often obtain offers of summer work, sponsorship or employment on graduation. Our placements team will support you in finding a placement, and we have an extensive network of employers across all sectors. In the final year, you will complete your Integrated Engineering degree by studying modules which will more fully define your chosen engineering specialism. To do this you will choose modules from one of four module clusters. These clusters relate to civil and mechanical engineering, electro-mechanical engineering, electro-robotic engineering, and robotic-computing engineering. To complete your studies, you must also do a compulsory final year dissertation project chosen from your preferred cluster.

International applicants

The University of Plymouth has a dedicated International Student Advice (ISA) service who will support you from the day you accept an offer at the University, right through to graduation. They will offer help and advice so you can get the most out of your studies, and your time in the UK, visit for more information. Once you have applied through UCAS, your conditional offer letters will also be sent to you by email, so be sure to enter your current email address on your application and to check this email regularly. You'll need your unconditional letter, and the Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) that we'll send you, when applying for your student visa to the UK. A minimum £2,000 tuition fee deposit will be required before we'll send you the CAS. We're a licenced Sponsor under the Points Based System. To comply with our duties as a Sponsor, we're required to check other aspects of your application in addition to your academic achievements, for example any previous studies, financial status and your immigration history in the UK. For course entry requirements (inc. English requirements) please refer to the specific page for the course you are interested in ( A recognised English language qualification (e.g. IELTS) would be required or successful completion of one of the University's pre-sessional English Language courses.
