General Engineering BEng (Hons)

Taught by world-leading experts from our seven outstanding engineering departments, this three-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 our subjects, covering a range of engineering fields.

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