What Will You Study

Our flexible Engineering programme brings to life core subjects such as mechanics, thermodynamics and electrical/electronic systems, along with emerging technologies like renewable energy, new materials and advanced sensors.

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.

All our undergraduate degrees start with a common first year, regardless of which discipline you choose, and include modules such as Strengths and Materials, and Electrical and Electronic Fundamentals as well as Engineering Mathematics courses. At the end of your first year, you can choose to specialise in a particular field of Engineering and choose from second year modules including Engineering Analysis and Instrumentation and Control.

On the Study Abroad variant  of the degree you’ll spend the second year of your course studying at a partner university in North America or Australasia. This counts towards a full year of your academic study.

You will follow the Bachelors programme for the first three years, following courses appropriate to your selected discipline. If you continue on to Masters level, your fourth year modules may include Nuclear Engineering Systems and Advanced CAD/CAM.
