Studying to be an engineer and gaining the right skills and the right qualifications, can lead you to frequent travel, passion projects and a fulfilling career. The Electro-Mechanical Engineering with Foundation Year BEng (Hons) course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in the engineering sector. The strength of the course lies in preparing students, who are unable to follow the more traditional route onto a degree course in Electro-Mechanical Engineering. Considered an art by many, engineering is a combination of science and technology that is concerned with solving complex problems, such as machinery, infrastructure, design and many more. Practitioners of this discipline are capable of working on significant global issues such as the effects of climate change or improving city infrastructure. Your first year on the Electro-Mechanical Engineering with Foundation Year BEng (Hons) course, provides you with opportunities to develop fundamental knowledge and skills in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering. Students who successfully complete their foundation year will then progress onto the Electro-Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons). The subsequent Electro-Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) qualification could offer you broad and diverse career options, including molecular, transport, power, optical, vehicle and web engineering to name a few. Engineering is an exciting subject that can lead you to frequent travel, passion projects and a fulfilling career. Alongside possible international opportunities, you may get the chance to conduct critical research with our experienced staff, learn from skilled guest visitors and take part in an invaluable placement year. Guest visitors are subject to availability.
