Overview

There is always a high demand for graduates who can grasp engineering problem-solving and have a solid understanding of multi-disciplinary projects. And with opportunities at some of the biggest names in engineering on your doorstep, you'll be in a perfect position to take the next step in your career on graduation.

The Engineering (Hons) at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) is a one-year top-up course that turns an Engineering Foundation Degree, HND or international qualification into an honours degree. Building on the foundation of your previous studies you can choose modules from across our Engineering Awards together with some from the Business School. This will enable you to, subject to timetabling and prior knowledge, tailor the degree to your interests.

Careers / Further study

Your combined understanding of engineering practice, information technology (IT), project management and business will equip you for work in a range of industries and professions.

These range from mechanical design, manufacture and operations management, to alternative energies and electronics.

Recent graduates have gone on to work as CAD engineers, technicians, mechanical engineers, project managers and product support engineers.
