Our courses are designed to mimic industry and develop your interpersonal, communication, problem-solving and teamwork skills – all of which are vital across the industry.
You’ll work in teams on projects which we update every year, so the content is always fresh and new.
Previous projects have included building the Pavillion on the campus grounds.
We encourage you to develop a commercial approach and our courses are designed to replicate industrial practice, so that you are prepared both for your placement and your career.
We also ensure that the equipment and software you use is industry standard, including Cisco, Xilinx, Altair and LabView, so you’re trained on what you’ll use when you graduate.
Your timetable will be built around teaching time using our facilities on campus with online sessions for some activities where being virtual adds value. That means it’s not going to be like 2020 over again. We've combined the best of our pre-pandemic teaching with what's worked best for students while they've been learning at home.
We’ve planned your learning so it has most benefit for you:
We encourage you to take a year-long placement between your second and third years, as this gives you the chance to develop your skills in a professional setting and explore interests you’d like to pursue when you graduate.
Our placements give you the chance to build industry links, apply your knowledge, develop practical skills and will boost your CV and chances of employment when you graduate.
We support you in gaining the employment skills you need, alongside the placements, so you graduate feeling confident and ready for the industry.
We're designing our approach to teaching and learning for 2021 using student and staff feedback from the past year and evidence of what helped students learn best. This means we can incorporate some of the most successful innovations and new practices and make the most of your study time on campus and online.
Our team has risen to the occasion over the past year – supporting not only students, but research into the pandemic. Our graduates have been working on the front line, supporting the NHS through the crisis. We’re proud of the work we have done within our community and we are taking what we have learnt forward, to continue to offer you the best education and preparation possible.
