Why choose this course?

Our BEng (Hons) in Electromechanical Engineering covers a range of topics and associated areas, giving you the knowledge and skills expected of a modern engineer entering industry today. You will cover electrical, electronic and mechanical principles as well as materials and engineering design for manufacturing processes. We focus on sustainability and 3D design and simulation, teaching you the importance of ethical technical and business practices within modern organisations.

One of the key features of this course is engagement with industry and this is supported by local engineering employers through the Northants Engineering Training Partnership (NETP).

When you successfully complete the second year of the BEng, you can choose to progress onto the integrated postgraduate MEng.
