The Department of Engineering Science at Oxford has a top-level quality assessment rating for teaching, and a world-class reputation for research. Because we believe that future engineering innovation will benefit from broad foundations as well as specialised knowledge, teaching is based on a unified course in Engineering Science, which integrates study of the subject across the traditional boundaries of engineering disciplines. Links between topics in apparently diverse fields of engineering provide well-structured fundamental understanding, and can be exploited to give efficient teaching.
The Engineering Science programme is a four-year course, leading to the degree of Master of Engineering. The first two years are devoted to topics which we believe all Engineering undergraduates should study. In the third and fourth years there is scope for specialisation into one of six branches of engineering: Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Information and Mechanical. Decisions about which of these will be your specialisation can be deferred until the third year. In the fourth year there may be opportunities to study abroad.
The course is accredited every four years by the major engineering institutions in respect of the initial requirements for the designation of chartered engineer.
Industrial experience is an extremely important adjunct to an academic engineering education, and undergraduates are strongly encouraged to obtain it. One way to do so is by being sponsored. Further information is generally available through your careers teacher, or from the engineering institutions.
If your sponsoring company wants you to spend a year with them before university, you will be asked to declare this at your interview and in your UCAS application. For more information on this course please visit ox.ac.uk/uges.

There are so many great things to say about Oxford, from its incredibly generous bursaries, to the world-renowned tutorial system, to the plethora of libraries. The city is picturesque and beautiful, whether it is snowy or sunny weather, and full of discounts for students eager for a cheap lunch or a good bargain. The collegiate system is an intimate, personalised learning experience. Best thought of as dorms, colleges are where you eat, sleep and socialise! They all have their own balls and quirks, which are great fun. It is a practically unrivaled life and educational experience.
It's been incredible, I couldn't ask for anymore. Yes, the work is hard and the terms can be intense but it's also a lot of fun and an incredible place to study. It's a totally different experience than any other University and one I wouldn't trade for the world. The student life is so interactive and there are constantly fun events being run within the college, from a pub quiz to a halloween party or pumpkin carving or a movie night or a life drawing class or yoga or a food eating contest, all for FREE, I could go on and on. You are constantly busy, but still being looked after, the one on one relationship with your tutors is incomparable. You have tutors who are there to offer their help any time you need it, and you see them every week so even if you start to struggle, they will notice and offer you any extra help you may need.
