Brunel’s Engineering Foundation Year is a one-year, full-time course that prepares you for the study of engineering at degree level. It’s an ideal choice if you don’t have the required qualifications to begin an engineering degree straight away. This engineering foundation course will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to join the first year of your chosen engineering degree. You will learn about basic engineering principles and study subjects including engineering mathematics, physics, mechanics, and materials science. You’ll be introduced to concepts of electronic engineering and develop your verbal, graphic and written communication skills. During your studies, you will benefit from well-equipped technical facilities including the structures and materials laboratory where you’ll use industry standard equipment for the testing of materials. The latest computing software is available for you to use in purpose-built computer laboratories. There are two one-week project breaks during which you’ll work in a team to gain practical knowledge of control systems, designing models, analysing design, and calculating physical parameters. After successfully completing your engineering foundation year – with the progression grades needed for your chosen engineering course – you will start the first year of one of Brunel’s engineering degree courses with the added benefit of an optional placement year: Aerospace Engineering BEng (Hons) Automotive Engineering BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering with Sustainability BEng (Hons) Computer Systems Engineering BEng (Hons) Electronic and Electrical Engineering BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) As an engineering with an integrated foundation year student you will be entitled to funding throughout your studies. We recommend that you apply and secure funding for the full five-year MEng programme. This can be reduced if you decide not to take a placement year. You can also benefit from living on Brunel’s one London campus with direct access to all the University’s fantastic sporting and social facilities.
Year 0: Communications, Projects and Electronic Engineering - Engineering Science - Foundations of Physics - Material Science - Mathematical Methods
