From the minute we awake to an alarm clock, to the music we listen to, the clothes we dress in, the food we eat, the transport, roads and bridges we use, and the buildings we inhabit; every aspect of our daily routine involves some form of engineering. Engineers are the inventors and problem-solvers of our everyday world and they influence and develop the environment and technology of our future. Engineering graduates are in high demand and professional opportunities exist in many different fields such as construction, textiles, defence, renewable energy, food, aerospace, medicine, radio, TV and motor sport. There are also many kinds of engineering disciplines including civil, structural, mechanical, electronic and materials engineering and the type of work can vary from research and design to consulting and manufacturing. The engineering programmes at Exeter offer you a flexible first year to explore many disciplines of engineering, with the freedom to choose which excites you most before you decide to specialise in one area. Students on the BEng or MEng Engineering programmes normally change to one of the accredited, discipline specific, programmes at the end of the first year; although it is possible to continue with the general study of engineering beyond your first year. During your first year you will study subjects fundamental to all branches of engineering, giving you a broad-based introduction to the degrees on offer. The core course is common to the first years of all our Engineering programmes and provides you with technical and communication skills from across the whole spectrum of engineering, whilst also providing the foundation for learning a specialist branch of engineering. One half day a week is devoted to engineering design activities where you will work in small groups in the labs and workshops Why choose Engineering at Exeter? •You have the flexibility and freedom to explore Engineering for the first year before deciding on your chosen specialist field. •You will gain practical, hands-on experience from your first year; constructing a water-wheel and learning industry standard design software. •Our first-class equipment and excellent facilities include the latest Additive Layer Manufacturing technology and a 3D visualisation suite. •Our staff are committed to helping you make the best engineering career choices and you will be guided at every step to help you choose the best engineering option for you.
