For those who are unclear about which direction or pathway they wish to follow we offer a General Engineering entry point to our common first year structure. At the end of your first year, you can choose to specialise in a particular field of Engineering and choose from second and third year modules including Engineering Analysis and Engineering Materials.
At Lancaster you will experience a new interactive way of learning. Practical and experimental classes offer you hands-on experience to complement your course's theory modules, while innovative design-build-test projects replace traditional lab sessions. You learn by doing rather than just reading about it in a book.
On this course you’ll spend the second year studying at a partner university in North America or Australasia and it is open to all our engineering programmes regardless of selected specialisation. The courses are accredited by the relevant professional engineering institution. We match the appropriate modules that you would study at Lancaster with those of the overseas partner institution to ensure that you have appropriate skills and prerequisites for your return to Lancaster in year three.
Dependent on the route you choose to follow our Engineering courses offer either full or partial accreditation for the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and The Institute of Engineering and Technology.
