BEng with Foundation Year

The foundation year is made of modules designed to provide you with the scientific knowledge and study skills you will need to be successful in your degree studies. 

Core modules

  • Preparing for Learning in Higher Education
  • Foundation Maths A
  • Foundation Engineering
  • Foundation Maths B
  • Engineering Technology
  • Group Challenge (Engineering and Technology)

BEng with a Year Abroad

Spend year 3 studying overseas at a university of your choice. During this year abroad, you will follow a programme of study that will be agreed between yourself and the School of Engineering prior to your departure. You will take all assessments set by the host university while you are overseas, for which marks will be awarded which count towards your degree.

BEng with an Industrial Placement

Boost your employability by gaining valuable skills and experience in your third year with a paid work placement. The industrial placement is fully assessed and counts towards your final degree result; it therefore requires the successful completion of academic assignments, a portfolio and a final report.

Integrated Masters with a Year Abroad

Spend year 4 studying overseas at a university of your choice. During this year abroad, you will follow a programme of study that will be agreed between yourself and the Schoo prior to your departure. You will take all assessments set by the host university while you are overseas, for which marks will be awarded which count towards your degree.

Integrated Masters with an Industrial Placement

Boost your employability by gaining valuable skills and experience in your fourth year with a paid work placement. The industrial placement is fully assessed and counts towards your final degree result; it therefore requires the successful completion of academic assignments, a portfolio and a final report.

Where you'll study

Hull Campus

About the course

There are a number of course options available for studying Electronic Engineering at Hull. You can choose to study for either a BEng or MEng degree; both offer the chance to study at one of our partner institutions abroad or gain professional experience in a work placement. We also offer a foundation year; ideal for students who have little or no background in sciences or mathematics but would like to study engineering.

Our Electronic Engineering degree gives you a strong foundation in the theory and practice of electronics. It equips you with the specialist engineering knowledge, practical know-how and range of professional skills to open up opportunities to highly rewarding careers. You will experience this technology in lectures, laboratory time and project work supported by industry-standard software used by engineers worldwide. You will also become familiar with engineering calculation software used by engineers and scientists.

Entry requirements

Foundation Year entry requirements:

  • The foundation year is designed for applicants whose qualifications and experience do not allow direct entry to the undergraduate degree.
  • We expect applicants to demonstrate an experience of a related subject and an aptitude for academic work which may be determined by an essay and/or interview alongside the application.
  • For applicants with A levels in subjects other than those key to the degree, we will usually require a minimum of 80 points from Level 3 qualifications.

International students

Future prospects

Career prospects for engineering graduates continue to be excellent; many receive several firm offers of employment even before graduating. A report from industry body EngineeringUK highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers within the engineering sector in Britain.

Engineering enterprises in the Humber region have an overall turnover of £61 billion and offer a range of challenging and rewarding positions for talented engineering graduates.

The region is rapidly emerging as Europe’s renewable energy capital – 'the energy estuary’ – with engineering giant Siemens and its partner Associated British Ports investing £310 million in a wind turbine production facility at Green Port Hull and Vivergo Fuels’ nearby plant set to become the country’s largest producer of bioethanol.

The expertise you gain as an engineering student – your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, ability to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams – is much in demand in all areas of engineering, and this is reflected positively by starting salaries and average earnings.

You will also find that your engineering degree makes you highly sought-after by leading companies in the global marketplace: your engineering degree from Hull 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.

Alternatively, many students decide to stay in Hull to study for higher degrees at Masters and PhD level.
