Our engineering, computing, and environment courses offer students the opportunity to learn and grow in a real-world environment. You'll benefit from our practice-based, hands-on approach to learning and teaching, focused on preparing you with the skills you need to work in your chosen industry.

These skills are taught within our world-class facilities, providing students with some of the most innovative and advanced technology in order to have the freedom to invent, create and revolutionise their practice.

Links with industry

Our strong contacts with industry and close links with accrediting bodies provide pathways to full professional status. Each of our courses are rooted in the needs of the industry and designed to give you the skills you need to make a difference to people's lives.

Our inspiring alumni

When students graduate, they join our successful alumni community. We support and celebrate the many successes of our alumni, which include Jonathan Asherson OBE, regional director SE Asia for Rolls-Royce; and Malcolm AH Brown, president of the Geological Society of London.

Our courses

We run regular Hackathons and Game Jams and feature industry speakers through our inKUbator, where students work together in interdisciplinary teams to prototype ideas. We're an educational partner of Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe and a PlayStation First member. Students have the opportunity to develop games for commercial hardware such as the PlayStation 4.

Students can join the University's motorsport team and participate in the annual Formula E Student competition. This is Europe's highest profile educational motorsport competition and is run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

World-class facilities

Our industry-standard laboratories and equipment provide plenty of opportunities to put theory into practice, and gain valuable experience using the tools you'll find in the workplace – as well as some more unique equipment too. We encourage our students to learn through creating.

They have the freedom to invent, create and express their ideas using the latest technologies.
