Educational Aims: Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

  • This undergraduate programme aims to equip graduates with a sound foundation in the essentials of engineering science so that they are well prepared to become competent professional engineers able to cope with change. It exists as a Part I (first year) scheme only and specialisation to electrical, mechanical or mechatronic engineering in Part II is mandatory. It is not possible to exit with a BEng without specialisation.

    Subject specific: Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

    To ensure that students acquire a comprehensive core of understanding in the key engineering science subjects with particular emphasis placed on topics important to the specialist engineering subject area.

    Through an emphasis on teaching through design, to develop students’ capabilities in assessing engineering options across a broad range of subjects, their capacity to make decisions, and their creativity and flair.

    To develop students’ awareness of the social, cultural and ethical context in which professional engineers operate, and their capacity to work within the appropriate code of conduct.

    To provide a multi-disciplinary environment, to foster students’ capacity to deal with situations that cross subject boundaries.

    To invest graduates with a fitness to enter professional practice and the capacity to have a beneficial impact upon it, whether in the industrial or service sectors generally or in the specialist engineering discipline in particular.

    General: Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

    To encourage and value the development of students’ key skills in communications, IT (including CAD, analysis and simulation tools), lifelong learning, team-working and project management.
