Overview

The integrated masters degree in Engineering from The Open University UK covers the techniques, concepts and knowledge required by professional engineers. You’ll begin by exploring the fundamentals of this creative and analytical subject – using a range of methods underpinned by science and mathematics. Later you’ll choose one of six areas in which to specialise. You’ll get to work on real-life projects and team up with other students at residential schools to create innovative solutions to challenging problems.

Key features of the course
