City's broad BEng (Hons) Engineering course is ideal for students with a strong grounding in Mathematics and Science who wish to develop their capabilities in logic and problem-solving. The interdisciplinary nature of the degree course means a wide variety of career paths will be available to graduates.
Our current engineering degrees are all accredited by the relevant professional institutions, providing a path for graduates to gain Chartered Engineer status. We have every expectation that this new degree will similarly receive full institutional accreditation.
The continual growth in computer speed, storage capabilities and visualization techniques, together with greater levels of understanding of the physics that explains our world, has led to remarkable improvements in the fidelity of engineering simulations. This degree responds to the demand for engineers enthused by tackling cross-disciplinary challenges, in particular through the development of advanced engineering software (using high-performance computers) and use of digital manufacturing.
Numerate engineering graduates who exhibit strong logical skills, curiosity and an ability to perform at the highest technical level are much sought after by industry. This broad engineering degree will develop your capabilities in not just problem-solving, but problem-seeking. Graduates will have the potential to work within interdisciplinary teams on a wide range of advanced engineering technologies spanning from the design of space probes or aeroengines, F1 aerodynamics, oil and gas recovery, to tether-free walking robots and the design of artificial human heart valves.
The first year is common to all of City's engineering courses. You will take the following six core modules:
- EX1010 Mathematics I
- ET1060 Engineering Science
- ET1070 Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics I
- ET1080 Solid Mechanics
- ET1061 Electronics
- ET1090 Design I
You will begin to specialise in the second year, taking the following six core modules:
- EX2010 Mathematics II
- ET2070 Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics II
- ET2082 Measurement and Data Analysis
- ET2080 Structural Mechanics
- ET2063 Mechatronics
- ET2100 Design II: Engineering
In year three you will take the following six core modules:
- CV3602 Structural Engineering
- AE3401 Aerodynamics and Propulsion
- EE3602 Signal Processing and Communications
- EE3702 Medical Physics and Imaging
- ME3403 Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering Management
- ET3105 BEng Project: Engineering
Assessment is by coursework and examinations. Group learning and communication skills are addressed through design studies and presentations. Practical and technical skills are assessed through laboratory work, data analysis and project reports.
Grades obtained in each year count towards the final degree classification, with increasing weight given to the later years.
The balance of assessment by examination, practical examination and assessment by coursework will to some extent depend on the optional modules you choose. The approximate percentage of the course assessment, based on 2016/17 entry is as follows:
- 62% written examination, 38% coursework
- 53% written examination, 47% coursework
- 61% written examination, 39% coursework
- 28% written examination, 72% coursework.
