Sheffield is the only university in the UK with a whole department dedicated to control and systems engineering. Rolls-Royce have opened a technology centre here. And we have research contracts with major organisations such as the European Space Agency. Our facilities include a robotics lab and a new (2015) control and electronics lab.
This course gives you a grounding in the control of advanced engineering systems. You will also learn how that knowledge can be applied to complex systems such as biological processes and the environment. You will learn about system analysis and the design techniques used in industry. And you'll take part in the faculty's Global Engineering Challenge, a team exercise designed to make you a better engineer.
Spending a year on work placement means a longer course, but if you're focused on career in this field the benefits are difficult to ignore. You will be giving yourself a head start in the jobs market: making contacts, applying your knowledge – and being paid a salary.
Systems and control engineers can build robots and design manufacturing processes. They can even help to predict climate change and financial trends. So graduates are in demand. Ours work for companies including Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, Shell and HSBC. The BEng is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Measurement and Control.

"You aight, duck?" It’s a sort of mantra in Sheffield. An assortment of dubious endearing terms, generously drenched in Henderson’s Relish, served with a side of lowkey whining about The Arctic Monkeys. Before you know it you’ve caught the duck bug, whether you’re relaxing in one of the pubs on West Street or enjoying one of the massive nights out at the Union. Everything is within walking distance, but uphill – eventually you develop Viking legs and stop getting muscle soreness. The Peak District itself is part of town – ride the paternoster to the top of the Arts Tower and see for yourself. Aye duck, it’s reyt good.
