The integrated foundation year leads to a range of diverse STEM degrees, it covers broad topics including: physics, mathematics, electronics and computing, and the practical application of these to engineering disciplines through design-build-test challenges. These practical CDIO (conceive-design-implement-operate) tasks offer students an opportunity to work in groups to combine their skills and solve real engineering problems. In addition to core subjects, our module on ‘Research, Communication and Employability Skills’ will provide you with self-learning, planning, report writing and presentation skills, while ‘IT and Computing Skills’ will introduce the ways that computing can be used to construct, solve and analyse mathematical problems and to programme microcontrollers.
Year One (Integrated Foundation Year): Your first year is your foundation year and provides you with a base level of information that you will build upon over the rest of your studies. You will study a broad array of content as you explore fundamental science, mathematics, electronics, computing, design, report writing, and communication skills. Year Two: In your second year, you will explore the key fundamentals of electronic and electrical engineering, as well as computer aided engineering, mathematical principles, and mechanical applications. Year Three: Your third year builds on your previous learning to explore more specialised elements of electronic and electrical engineering including power systems, electronic machines, and digital design. Year Four In your fourth year, you will work as part of group to undertake a final engineering project that will act as a culmination of your studies. Alongside this, you will explore industrially-relevant elements such as renewability and sustainability, as well as understand basic business concepts within a engineering contexts.
You will be assessed through a range of assignments, including: -Coursework -Written exams -Lab and practical work -Project work -Presentations -Online tests
