You will develop many important engineering skills through a wide variety of coursework exercises. Practical courses will introduce you to instruments and techniques, which you can then apply to laboratory experiments. Your three-dimensional visualisation and communication skills will be honed in the drawing exercises. Design projects during the first three years of the course will encourage your creativity.
You will learn modern programming language techniques enabling you to write your own software and gain a critical appreciation of commercial packages. You will receive training in how to speak effectively and write clearly. In your final year, you will have the opportunity to combine all these skills against the challenges of a major individual project in your chosen specialisation.
