We offer a wide range of innovative undergraduate and postgraduate courses that respond to the needs of students and the requirements of employers and reflect the diversity of modern technology. We know that industry is continually expanding into new areas and technology is rapidly developing and changing and we are proud to play a vital role in these developments.
Global issues such as the growth in global communications and information handling, global warming and environmental considerations together with the need to conserve global resources and find alternative energy sources, have identified new areas of importance in the study and practice of engineering and product design. Our courses are designed with these issues in mind and are focused on academic content and real-life applications so our graduates are appropriately equipped for future employment and/or postgraduate studies.
We take pride in the quality of our teaching and state-of-the-art facilities
Industry links are very important to us. Through employer visits, research and guest lectures by practicing professionals we create an opportunity for students to get a real sense of the work place.
Some of our students spend their third year on placement in industry, consultancies, in-house studios and manufacturing companies. We find these links have a positive impact on our student experience and graduate success rate, helping us to produce potential employees with the skills employers want.
Our teaching staff have a great amount of experience. Whether they're teaching, carrying out research or involved in consultancy for industry they have the skills to make a difference to you. You'll learn in a modern, well-equipped environment complete with state-of-the-art technology.
You'll learn through lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical work. Taking on both group and individual projects, we assess your work through a mixture of coursework and exams, with project and laboratory work counting towards your final award. We also teach you the life skills of effective communication, problem solving, project planning and team working that will set you apart and give you the best chance of getting the job you want after you graduate.
We have invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment so that our students have access to up-to-date workshops, laboratories and design studios. In these you will get hands-on engineering experience learning how to test, measure, design and make things. Our computer rooms feature all the relevant professional software creating industry-standard atmosphere. Using our workshops, computer rooms and studios, our design students learn how to bring ideas off the computer screen and into 3D full-size models and working prototypes.
