BEng with a Year Abroad

You will spend your third year studying overseas at a university of your choice. During your year abroad you will follow a programme of study that will be agreed between yourself and the School prior to your departure. You will take all assessments set by the host university while you are abroad, for which marks will be awarded and a final transcript released.

BEng with an Industrial Placement

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain valuable skills and experience while you earn. The industrial placement in year 3 is fully assessed and counts towards your final degree result; it therefore requires the successful completion of academic assignments, a continuous log and final report.

Future prospects

Employment prospects for engineering graduates continue to be excellent, and many receive several firm offers of employment before graduating.

The expertise you gain as an engineering graduate: your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, ability to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams are much in demand in all areas of engineering and this means that starting salaries and average earnings are reflected as a result. In fact, 85% of our graduates are in a professional or managerial job within six months of graduating.

You will also find that your engineering degree makes you highly sought-after and much in demand by leading companies, particularly in the global market place; your engineering degree can therefore lead to a career anywhere in the world. Our graduates have gone on to work with companies such as Alstom, BAE Systems, Corus, GlaxoSmithKline, the armed forces and the Health and Safety Executive.

Many students have also stayed on for higher degrees both at masters and PhD level.
