Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

Inspired by the Royal Academy of Engineering, this in-depth course aims to develop high-calibre engineers who can lead complex engineering projects that are vital to modern society.

After a broad, common first year, students can choose to specialise in mechanical, aerospace or civil engineering, studying technical units alongside students from these other engineering degrees.

The third year is usually a paid placement in industry, which forms an assessed part of the course and is closely monitored by the University, allowing you to start working towards becoming a Chartered Engineer. You will be given responsibilities similar to graduate entrants, with opportunities to manage your own projects. We will support you in applying for a placement.

In years four and five you can choose from a wide range of technical modules from the School of Civil, Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and open units in other faculties. This gives you the chance to gain further technical expertise in your chosen specialisation and a broader learning experience in other subjects, such as computer science, finance, geography or languages.

A group research and design project forms a major component of your final two years. The project is conducted with one of our industrial partners and you can choose from a range of topics, such as robotics, manufacturing, renewable energy, future cities and sustainable transport.

Our degree is accredited by numerous bodies under licence from the Engineering Council. An accredited degree provides you with the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
