You can keep your study broad for the whole course, or focus on a particular material after the second year. If you're already interested in a certain area, you can follow a specialism from the beginning, for instance metals, aerospace materials and mechanical design, or materials engineering.
In the first year, you'll take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you'll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It's designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
Your third year will be spent on placement in industry. This experience will put your learning into context and give you a head start in the careers market. You pay a reduced fee to the University for that year and you get paid a salary.
