B.Eng. (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering

The B.Eng. (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering incorporates both technical and practical knowledge to provide the ideal springboard for satisfactory industrial careers and further academic development. This degree is a full-time four-year course, structured as follows:

Year 1 and 2

The first two years consist of initial background courses on electrical and electronic circuits, mechanical engineering, computer-aided design, modelling of dynamic systems, computer programming and architecture, electrical machines and microcontrollers.

Year 3 and 4

During the final two years the students take optional courses to further their knowledge and expertise in the fields of microcontrollers; advanced electronic and power circuit design; electrical and renewable energy; advanced drives; signal processing; control systems; and artificial intelligence. The technical knowledge acquired during the course is put to use in a final year thesis, a showcase of the students’ development and their future aspirations.

B.Eng.(Hons) in Mechanical Engineering

The B.Eng.(Hons) in Mechanical Engineering provides students the necessary knowledge and skills to professionally design, develop, manufacture and maintain mechanical engineering systems. The wide and dynamic range of applications makes this an exciting and rewarding Degree Course which includes high level academic tuition and hands-on practice. The course spans over four years, structured as follows:

Year 1 and 2

Fundamental mechanical engineering topics are covered together with essential ancillary subjects. Modules cover the following fields: mechanics; structural engineering; thermo-fluids; materials science and engineering; manufacturing and industrial engineering; drawing and computer-aided design; electrical, electronics and control technology; computational techniques; mathematics; and other introductory engineering subjects.

Year 3 and 4

Students are given the opportunity to apply the skills learnt so far in an engineering design project in their third year. At this stage, whilst retaining fundamental core subjects, students can choose amongst two streams: Structural Mechanics and Thermo-Fluids or Industrial and Materials Engineering. The former builds on areas related to stress analysis, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics whilst the latter focuses on the fields of industrial, manufacturing and materials engineering. Students will in their final year present a thesis based on a defined engineering project which they are expected to plan, manage and realise.
