Modules

In your first year, you will be introduced to the key engineering and innovation concepts. We’ll also work on bridging any gaps in your creative and technical knowledge, to provide an all-round basis for further study. In your second year you will explore some of the issues that engineers and scientists are facing today and the tools, technologies and ideas that could be used to address them in the future. In your third year you will focus on the following areas: future challenges and technologies, big data science and individual research and enterprise. In your fourth and final year you will focus on various topics including structural bioengineering, advanced surface engineering and innovation management and business venturing. You will also undertake two design projects and an independent research project linked to one of our specialist research areas.

Assessment methods

We assess you in ways that encourage a deeper understanding and allow you to develop your skills through multiple choice tests, essays, written exams, mini projects, presentations, review articles and supervised work sessions.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

As a mixed subject within engineering where students get a chance to learn from a range of disciplines, this course isn't taken by as many people as some of the more specialist disciplines. Demand for engineering skills is high, though, and so unemployment rates are low and the average starting salary was a very healthy £26,400 for 2015 graduates. Graduates are able to specialise enough to be working in jobs in engineering — especially in design and development - as well as engineering project management. IT and management consultancy were some of the more common jobs outside engineering. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to a MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

This course sits in a group of very specialised materials technology subjects, including furniture technology, engineering materials and gemmology - bear this in mind when you review the stats, as the employment prospects for each don't necessarily have much in common. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
