Engineering City, University of London

Undergraduate

City's broad MEng (Hons) Engineering course is ideal for students with a strong grounding in Mathematics and Science who wish to develop their capabilities in logic and problem-solving. The interdisciplinary nature of the degree course means a wide variety of career paths will be available to graduates. Our current engineering degrees are all accredited by the relevant professional institutions, providing a path for graduates to gain Chartered Engineer status. We have every expectation that this new degree will similarly receive full institutional accreditation.

The continual growth in computer speed, storage capabilities and visualization techniques, together with greater levels of understanding of the physics that explains our world, has led to remarkable improvements in the fidelity of engineering simulations. This degree responds to the demand for engineers enthused by tackling cross-disciplinary challenges, in particular through the development of advanced engineering software (using high-performance computers) and use of digital manufacturing.

You can undertake a summer internship at the end of each academic year or opt to spend a year on an industry placement at the end of your third year - if you are on the MEng (Hons) route. Placements are paid, and are a fantastic way to gain professional experience in a relevant field as part of your degree. Undertaking a placement year could also count towards the experience requirement for a professional engineering qualification. In recent years students from our engineering courses have been able to obtain placements at leading companies within their chosen field such as BMW, the Home Office, Ghana Energy Commission, Airbus and British Airways.

Numerate engineering graduates who exhibit strong logical skills, curiosity and an ability to perform at the highest technical level are much sought after by industry. This broad engineering degree will develop your capabilities in not just problem-solving, but problem-seeking. Graduates will have the potential to work within interdisciplinary teams on a wide range of advanced engineering technologies spanning from the design of space probes or aeroengines, F1 aerodynamics, oil and gas recovery, to tether-free walking robots and the design of artificial human heart valves.

Course details

Modules

The first year is common to all of City's engineering courses. You will take the following six core modules:

EX1010 Mathematics I
ET1060 Engineering Science
ET1070 Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics I
ET1080 Solid Mechanics
ET1061 Electronics
ET1090 Design I

You will begin to specialise in the second year, taking the following six core modules:

EX2010 Mathematics II
ET2070 Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics II
ET2082 Measurement and Data Analysis
ET2080 Structural Mechanics
ET2063 Mechatronics
ET2100 Design II: Engineering

In year three you will take the following six core modules:

CV3602 Structural Engineering
AE3401 Aerodynamics and Propulsion
EE3602 Signal Processing and Communications
EE3702 Medical Physics and Imaging
ME3403 Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Management
ET3105 BEng Project: Engineering

The final year of the integrated Masters involves a major individual research project and group design exercises and modules covering variety of topics including advanced structural analysis and heat transfer, advanced computational fluid dynamics etc.

Assessment method

Assessment is by coursework and examinations. Group learning and communication skills are addressed through design studies and presentations. Practical and technical skills are assessed through laboratory work, data analysis and project reports.

Grades obtained in each year count towards the final degree classification, with increasing weight given to the later years.

The balance of assessment by examination, practical examination and assessment by coursework will to some extent depend on the optional modules you choose. The approximate percentage of the course assessment, based on 2016/17 entry is as follows:

Year 1
62% written examination, 38% coursework

Year 2
53% written examination, 47% coursework

Year 3
61% written examination, 39% coursework

Year 4
28% written examination, 72% coursework.

Points of entry

This means the year in which you would like to start the course.

‘Year 1’ means you will start in the first year.

‘Year 0’ means you will enter onto a foundation year.

You may be able to start some courses in the second or third years, if you meet certain criteria. You will need to discuss this with the university or college directly.

The following entry points are available for this course:
