Anthroengineering at London South Bank University - UCAS

Course summary

Are you intrigued to learn how cultures influence the design of products? This masters in Anthroengineering, which is one of the world’s first course of its kind, addresses generational challenges and demands of our daily lives which requires both technology and an understanding of humanity. Anthroengineering combines two specialist fields, engineering and the application of science in technology, and anthropology, the science of understanding humanity by studying, among other things, its biology and culture. Run in collaboration with the Natural History Museum (NHM), you will have a unique learning experience with industry guest speakers in our seminar series. Through this, you will be introduced to real-world applications of anthroengineering, pointing you towards potential career paths after the completion of your masters’ degree. This MSc includes lectures, guest lectures from other academics and industries, seminars, practical laboratory experiments, practical application of taught methods, tutorials, practical workshop classes, practical laboratory experiments, and field trips. You will learn both individually and in groups. Each module is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical workshops, etc. all of which amounts to directed teaching (classroom contact). There is a variance in the makeup of the number of hours dedicated to lectures, workshops, etc. but the total number of study hours attached to each module is dependent on the module weighting in credits. Typically, a 20-credit module is attached to 200 hours of learning which constitutes both directed learning and independent learning (1 credit is equal to 10 hours). This is split between contact time and independent learning. Generally, this equates to a maximum of 78 hours of contact time per module, and a minimum of 122 hours of independent learning time.
