UWS has a solid reputation for producing competent graduates who are sought after by industry. Careers include design, process analysis, manufacture, project management and teaching. Graduates work for leading companies including Rolls-Royce, Raytheon, Cummins, Thales, and BAE Systems. Our female students thrive particularly well at UWS, with many winning top student for several of the year’s groups (i.e. Court Medal) and female graduates are proving to be the most likely to be offered graduate employment first.

The programme is significantly practically-orientated, focusing on planning and the continuous improvement of engineering applications. You will develop your team working skills while undertaking a wide range of practical exercises in our state-of-the-art Centre of Engineering Excellence. 

Study abroad

In Year 3 there are opportunities for UK students to study at a number of overseas institutions.

At time of print, accreditation is being sought from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
