General Engineering

Not sure which Engineering discipline to choose? Why not take our general entry route to Engineering where students can take classes in 3 of the 4 disciplines offered in semester 1 of first year.

In addition to entering the School of Engineering by applying for one of our degree programmes in the traditional disciplines, students who are unsure of the discipline or degree they wish to study can apply to study with us using the UCAS code H100.

This is a general entry route where students would take classes in 3 of the 4 disciplines offered in semester 1 of first year. At the end of semester 1, students studying the H100 would choose which discipline they wish to study in having had an opportunity to study 3 of the 4 available.

Although the programme appears as BEng General Engineering on UCAS and in the University Prospectus, it is worth noting a student cannot graduate with this degree, it is only an entry route. The student would graduate in whichever degree programme they choose at the end of semester 1 of first year.
