Course overview

Our Foundation programme in Engineering will give you a broad understanding of the fundamentals of engineering and provide a solid grounding in mathematics, physical sciences and programming subjects. After completion of the programme, students successfully proceed onto our BEng or MEng undergraduate engineering degrees. During the course, you will have opportunities to interact with students and lecturers across the Faculty of Engineering to help you to make an informed decision on the branch of engineering you wish to pursue. As an engineering student, you will spend a significant amount of time performing lab work as well as participating in tutorials, written assignments and attending lectures. There is a strong emphasis on the teaching of mathematical and physical sciences along with introductions to computer language and programmes. Furthermore, the course will explore study and research techniques essential for undergraduate level programmes.
