Engineering

At Leicester, we offer a range of specialist degree courses founded on a unified philosophy of engineering teaching, which ensures you receive the breadth of technical knowledge demanded of a professional engineer.

Established more than 50 years ago and based in one of the most iconic 20th Century buildings of any UK university, we are a truly international community of men and women who share a passion for our discipline. We pride ourselves on being a friendly department, where members of staff will take the time to get to know you and your fellow engineering students and support you throughout your studies.

All our undergraduate degrees have a common first year, which will give you an extensive base of knowledge to build from. This means that you can transfer between the different subject areas at any time during your first year if a particular field of engineering sparks your interest. Later on in your course, you will study your chosen field in more depth and gain specialist understanding of particular areas, preparing you for work at the forefront of advances in technology.

Throughout your course, theory and practice are integrated, challenging you and motivating you towards engineering and related careers with an appreciation of social issues and legal requirements.
