About the Department

The education we offer is designed to turn the brightest, most ambitious students into twenty-first century engineers. Our courses will develop your knowledge, skills, imagination and creativity.

We work continuously with industry to ensure that our courses, facilities and equipment you will use remain relevant to the profession.

You will gain a true appreciation of manufacturing through project work which requires use of manual and automated manufacture tools in our student workshop.

There are opportunities to engage directly with research taking place in the Department. Areas include sustainable energy, medical engineering, robotics, structural integrity, advanced manufacturing and future transport technologies.

If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa. Please visit our International Student Support webpage for further information.
