On this course you can:
This course puts you in an excellent position to start a career as a professional engineer in areas as diverse as consumer product design, robotics, defence or aerospace engineering. It also meets the requirements of many of the major engineering graduate programmes and provides a route to postgraduate study at Portsmouth or academic institutions elsewhere.
Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:
You will begin the course with the foundations of engineering science and engineering design, including some computer-aided design. As your knowledge develops, youll move on to more in-depth study covering topics such as instrumentation, computer-aided design and product modelling.
Core units in the first year include:
In your final year you will cover solid materials, manufacturing systems and CAE (product realisation). There is also a range of topics for you to tailor your studies as well as an individual project, working on your own design, make and test activity.
Most of the course is delivered via our interactive virtual learning environment. With access to all the study material youll need, discussion forums and the chance to connect with peers and lecturers via chat sessions, youll have plenty of academic support and heaps of resources. If you are studying alongside work, then you can also receive ongoing guidance from a University-approved mentor.
A range of assessment methods encourages a deeper understanding of engineering and allows you to develop your skills. Heres how we assess your work:
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
