Course Description

By studying an engineering degree, you will learn to apply maths and science to find creative solutions to complex problems and bring exciting innovations to life. But the role of the engineer is changing. They have a critical part to play in overcoming the unprecedented challenges our world now faces. Challenges like food and water security, climate change, data security and our ageing population.

To solve these problems we’re going to need a new generation of engineering graduates who can see the big picture - who are bold, agile and entrepreneurial. Engineers who want to make a difference.
