Course details

You'll learn through a combination of problem solving, case studies, computer-based applications, project work and an industrial placement during year 3 of your studies.

International exchange opportunities may also be available.

The degree course has Incorporated Engineer accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Honours degree has partial Chartered Engineer accreditation.

You will study the same modules, and complete the same course work as a full-time student, but over a longer period of time. You'll generally come in to University for one day per week, and a four-year Honours degree will take around six years to complete part-time.

  • calendar How you’ll be taught

    Problem solving, case studies, computer-based applications, project work.

  • briefcase Work placement

    You are encouraged to take an optional industrial placement in addition to taught modules. Though this is non-credited, our placements team will support you to find placement opportunities.
