University of Sheffield has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Spending a year on work placement as part of your degree can give you a head start in the jobs market, and it makes for a richer, more rounded experience. As well as making contacts and learning how to apply your knowledge, you’ll be paid a salary. The BEng is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Measurement and Control. So there’s a strong practical focus from the outset, as well as a grounding in the principles. You will design, build and manage computer systems for sophisticated engineering applications such as aviation, infrastructure and medicine. And you’ll take part in the faculty’s Global Engineering Challenge, a team exercise designed to make you a better engineer. Sheffield is the only university in the UK with a whole department dedicated to control and systems engineering. Rolls-Royce have opened a technology centre here. And we have research contracts with major organisations such as the European Space Agency. Our facilities include a robotics lab and a new (2015) control and electronics lab. Graduates are in demand: they work in aerospace, manufacturing and energy, for companies such as Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, Dyson and Shell.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
