Our foundation year option enables you to join the General Engineering course even if you don’t have the formal qualifications or experience to meet the entry requirements. It equips you with the knowledge to move into formal degree study, setting you up for future success. Our General Engineering course isn’t just designed to teach you the practical and technical aspects of the subject. It also allows you to get involved in solving problems facing businesses in the real world, using the pioneering ‘Concept, Design, Implementation and Operation’ (CIDO) approach. CDIO is an international engineering education model, developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It allows you to learn in a practical, hands-on way to find creative, evaluated solutions to industry related engineering challenges. We are one of the only a handful of universities in the UK to offer CDIO. You will gain key employability skills and be encouraged to take up placements, helping you to go straight into employment upon completion of your studies. During the foundation year, you will develop your engineering, science and computing knowledge and you'll gain skills to prepare you to study at degree level. You will then go on to explore areas including:
- Engineering Mechanics
- 3D modelling and design
- Materials and manufacturing Engineering:
- Control systems, instrumentation and electronics
