Engineering Technologists make the world work better. Product designs evolve and improve as we improve our understanding. Engineering technologists drive these changes. From audio equipment to vacuum cleaners, designs improve every year as new solutions to old problems become available.
Our engineering technology degree prepares students to identify, understand and exploit these advances to the advantage of their career, their employers' profitability and society's benefit. The programme aims to produce graduates with a balance of analytical, entrepreneurial and exploitative skills to launch them into exciting careers as incorporated engineers.Multidisciplinary approach
One important consideration in the design of this programme is the need for engineering technologists who can "cross boundaries": electrical/electronic engineers who can discuss ideas and designs meaningfully with mechanical engineers and vice versa. This breadth and flexibility of knowledge will almost certainly be viewed as a key skill for future generations of engineering technologists.Accreditation
The BEng degree programme is three years in full-time mode and meets the educational requirements for registration as an incorporated engineer (IEng). Please see MEng programmes if you are looking for CEng status without further academic study.Outcomes
The aims of the programme are:
- To provide you with the knowledge and skills relevant to a career as an incorporated engineer who can work effectively with current and future engineering technologies, methods and standards
- To support you in understanding the innovative and pioneering approaches in this field and to be able to apply them to the solution of real-world problems to develop new engineering solutions
- To help you acquire the knowledge and skills required to perform a variety of incorporated engineer roles within mechanical engineering, electrical and electronic engineering and associated specialist fields.
