Course Content

The first year is designed to allow students from a diverse range of backgrounds to make a solid start on the course. Computer Architecture and Networks investigates the building blocks of computers and how they communicate. Electrical Engineering covers essential electrical circuits and power systems topics to give you the ability to power large computer systems reliably and efficiently.

The second year introduces you to the study of engineering management, which covers the business organisation, finances, contract law, health and safety and human resources issues that you will encounter while working in commercial engineering. The course continues to cover programming and operating systems, together with electronics and computer networks.

In your final year you will continue your studies in software and electronics but with a focus on an individual project in which you will perform a detailed research or design study with the help of an experienced supervisor into a technical aspect from the course.

Your course will be taught using lectures, with associated seminars, practical laboratory classes and personal tutorials. Your personal tutor will meet with you weekly during the first academic year and assist with your transition to studying in Higher Education.

You will work with staff on real-world problems from industry, commerce and research groups, as you would in professional practice; this means that you develop all of the professional skills at the same time as you learn the technical content of your degree.


UK requirements for international applications

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.
