  If you aspire to be the boss of an engineering company then this course will provide you with the skills you require to succeed.

The degree course has an Incorporated Engineer accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Honours degree has a partial Chartered Engineer accreditation. This means that you will receive a widely regarded professional qualification as well as a degree.

Because we know that many students prefer to keep their options open in their first years of study, we offer a programme of general engineering modules in the first year of your degree, before you begin to specialise.

As well as gaining engineering and management skills, you will also develop a wide range of transferable skills such as team working, presentation and communication.
