Engineering with a Year in Industry BEng (Hons)
Taught by world-leading experts from our seven outstanding engineering departments, this four-year course will ensure you develop a broad knowledge and understanding of engineering, while developing skills in independent thinking and the professional skills necessary for a career in industry.

In an increasingly complex and challenging world, knowledge and expertise beyond a single discipline is valuable for 21st-century engineers.

During your first two years you'll study modules across all disciplines and look at engineering in an interdisciplinary context. At the end of year two, you'll choose a specialism from one of the following 11 streams: Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Energy and Sustainability, General Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Medical Technologies, Software Engineering, Systems and Control Engineering.

You'll have the opportunity to spend the third year working in an engineering company. You'll be able to put your academic studies into context and improve your skills and employability. Most students are paid a salary during the placement. You will pay reduced tuition fees for that year.

While you are responsible for securing your placement, we have a dedicated Engineering Placement Team to help you. They will provide advice and support through the application process and beyond.

Being accepted onto the year in industry is subject to achieving a satisfactory performance. The year in industry is monitored and assessed by an academic member of staff and will appear on your final degree title.

We also offer a non-specialist stream, which allows you to continue studying a variety of disciplines. You'll spend your final year studying your chosen stream. The interdisciplinary ethos of your degree will be continued in an advanced research, or industry-led, final-year project.
