Transform into an inventor, designer, creator!

Engineers invent and design things, they make things work and analyse and solve problems, often using mathematical and software tools.

The impact of Engineers on the world is pervasive and often pioneering:

  • Engineers work to solve medical problems helping patients with enhanced diagnostic imaging, improved hearing devices, better blood vessel implants and laser surgery.

  • Engineers improve the way we live, driving advances in digital technology, such as the Internet of Things and Smart Cities, that are revolutionising how we interact with technology.

  • Engineers work to improve sustainability through advances in areas such as energy efficiency and green energy technologies. Some of the most recent and exciting innovations in the energy sector, including wave energy converters, bioreactors and combined heat and power units, are also the work of engineers.

If you’re interested in engineering, but haven’t yet made a choice between courses, the Common Entry into Engineering (Undenominated Entry) option is designed to help you make a decision while still earning credit towards your ultimate degree.

About the course

The Common Entry into Engineering (Undenominated Entry) offers a common first year with all other engineering courses. On completion of the common first year, you may choose to pursue one of the following honours degrees:

  • BEng and MEng in Electronic and Computer Engineering (DC190)

  • BEng and MEng in Mechatronic Engineering (DC193)

  • BEng and MEng in Sustainable Systems and Energy (DC194)

  • BEng and MEng in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (DC195)

  • BEng and MEng in Biomedical Engineering (DC197)

Please note that common entry does not mean an extra year added to the course; after completion of the one-year Common Entry into Engineering course, you’ll continue in the second year of your chosen degree course.
