Integrated Engineering (BEng/MEng)
The complexity and sophistication of modern engineering requires an increasing level of interaction between engineering disciplines. In the past these disciplines were considered to be largely independent. This is no longer the case. Even in our daily lives the everyday products we come into contact with are in fact complex systems made up of a number of different components. This will include; mechanical, electrical and electronic components, instrumentation and controllers embedded in computer hardware and software. Integrated Engineers are the people who understand the interaction that takes place between these different disciplines. As an Integrated Engineer you will be able to communicate effectively in a variety of engineering disciplines. By extension of this, Integrated Engineers are of considerable worth to all types of businesses and institutions across the world. In short, an Integrated Engineer is the perfect choice for employers.
The degree schemes are built around six primary themes that run through each year. They are Information Engineering, Engineering Mechanics, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering, Professional Engineering Studies and Integrating Studies. In addition, the strong collaborative links we have with industry means that you will benefit from relating your academic studies to the reality of industry.

How will Integrated Engineering help me to become a Chartered Engineer?
The different teaching areas that feed into this degree programme have been assessed as excellent in the most recent teaching quality assessment. The programme meets the educational requirements for becoming a Chartered Engineer, as it is accredited by the:
- Institute of Mechanical Engineers
- Institution of Electrical Engineers
- Institute of Energy
Uniquely for our Integrated Schemes, graduates may join all three institutions or choose the institution that best serves their own needs and aspirations as a professional engineer.
Globalisation of industry has meant that many engineers work abroad or as members of multinational teams. So it's now more important than ever before that engineers understand how engineering problems are approached in different cultures. We provide opportunities for students to spend a year abroad at some of Europe's top universities in France, Germany or Spain.
Employment & Career Opportunities
Few degrees, if any, can match Integrated Engineering for employment opportunities. There is a huge demand for engineers. We know that engineering industries are constantly looking for bright, adaptable, highly motivated, multi-disciplined engineers who possess good inter-personal skills.
