University rank #601 (WUR) ,
The School of Science and Technology prides itself on its hands-on approach to teaching and giving you real-world experience. The brand-new courses are taking these experiences to the next level with a revolutionary approach to teaching engineering.


This programme partners the industry every step of the way to ensure that you become the very best engineer of the future by working with all types and sizes of engineering organisations. In our innovative approach, you’ll spend a large proportion of your time each year applying theory to live, industry-led projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a year-long work placement to boost your industry knowledge even further.
With the focus firmly on problem-solving and live project work, this course aims to give you three to four years of industry experience before you graduate.
Due to the highly applied nature of these courses, the majority of your time will be spent in two purpose designed and built facilities on Clifton campus: the Engineering Research and Teaching building, and the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Engagement Centre (ISTEC). In these facilities, you will take your practical and workshop sessions. The lectures and seminars will take place in our new Teaching and Learning building.


As is normal practice for new engineering courses, the University will seek accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) for its programmes when they have students in the final year (2019/20). The accreditation, if granted, will be backdated to include the first intake years.
