This modular programme provides a four-year route to any of the BEng degree programmes currently available in the School of Engineering. The first year (Year Zero) is based at Carmel College, St Helens, about nine miles from the main University precinct. The College offers small class sizes and high standards of academic achievement. The programme, which is moderated by University staff, comprises introductory modules in Physics and Mathematics with students choosing a third optional module from Chemistry or Information Technology. In Year Two, Three and Four, students follow their chosen course from a number of available Engineering programmes.
The BEng is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
