This new degree programme is designed to equip graduates with a first degree in a relevant numerate subject with the technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge required to develop innovative engineering products and solutions and turn them to financial advantage.

About this degree

The programme combines a first-rate engineering education in areas that are key to developing new technologies (namely, advanced materials, renewable energy and biomedical engineering) with modules on project management and entrepreneurship to equip students with the fundamentals and skills required to manage innovation. Students undertake a group and an individual project with a focus on innovation.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of five core modules (75 credits), an optional module (15 credits), an individual research project (60 credits), and an innovation and Group Design Project (30 credits).

Core modules

  • Materials and Fatigue
  • Project Management
  • Mastering Entrepreneurship
  • New and Renewable Energy Systems
  • Applications of Biomedical Engineering

Optional modules

Students choose one of the following:

  • Advanced Computer Applications in Engineering
  • Vibration, Acoustics and Control
  • Entrepreneurial Finance

Dissertation/report

All students undertake an Innovation and Group Design Project and an individual research project, both of which culminate in a substantial dissertation. The Group Project focuses on creativity and design, teamwork, project management and entrepreneurial skills. The research project revolves around student research interest; it often has industry input and develops high-level presentation, critical thinking and research skills.

Teaching and learning

This dynamic programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory and project work, workshops and problem classes, all of which frequently draw upon real-life industrial case studies. Assessment is through examinations, coursework, lab reports, presentations, the group design project and the individual research project.

Please note that the list of modules given here is indicative. This information is published a long time in advance of enrolment and module content and availability is subject to change.
