University of Chichester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Sports and sporting events play a central role in society, breaking down barriers and uniting people. As well as the human aspects of sporting endeavour, engineering is an important and growing element in almost all sports. Improving performance and enhancing enjoyment, sports engineering is a programme applying engineering principles to an extremely diverse range of sporting activities. To design and analyse the performance of sporting equipment requires mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, materials science, product-design and sports science.
Chichester’s Sports Engineering degree recognises this need for wide knowledge and skills and runs interdisciplinary design-build-test projects, allowing sports engineering students to work with other engineering, science and design students to provide a wide exposure to knowledge and skills. Sports Engineering BEng. (Hons) at Chichester aims to provide the student with the scientific foundations, practical skills and techniques to enable them to make a constructive contribution to the world, by designing, building and using sporting equipment. Sports Engineering is an applied subject and the course is based around applied workshop learning; seminars with demonstrations; practical and lab work and design-build challenges.

English language requirements
The standard entry requirement for this programme is IELTS 6.0 with no element lower than 5.5. However, you can begin your 3-year degree programme with IELTS 5.5. Our International Route allows you to take 4 credit-bearing modules in International English Studies (IES) as part of your first year studies. This means you study 4 modules in your chosen subject and 4 in International English. The IES Modules allow you to focus on personal language development and your use of English as an academic language. Then, at the end of your first year, you’ll have all the necessary language skills to transfer to full study of your main subject. If you have an IELTS score under 5.5 you can still begin a 3-year degree programme with us. In this case we provide a 5 or 10 week intensive Presessional Programme in English language and academic skills. For the 10 week Programme you’ll need IELTS 4.5, and IELTS 5.0 for the 5 week Programme.
Further details of our international entry requirements can be found on our website.
