Whether you’re into cars or computers, robots or robust materials, there is a dynamic course for you, taught by experts who know how vital it is to find answers to tomorrow’s problems today.

Our Departments are highly rated, making our graduates among the first off the blocks when it comes to getting a top job in industry or academia.

If you study with us, you will be at the cutting-edge of science with facilities to match – and there really is no more thrilling a place to be.

Our first year is shared across the disciplines of Civil Engineering, Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.  This builds upon essential engineering fundamentals to develop students' broader understanding of behaviour, policy, entrepreneurship, and global perspectives.
