Le meilleur de la formation: The way they conduct teaching is boring and most part of it will go in the self studying only which isn't appreciable at least as per me.

Le meilleur de la formation: Studying here has giving me some many practical skills than I’m able to take to internship with me, and I have so many opportunities that I’m ready to take. In Design engineering you learn about the whole process of making a product from planning, prototyping and go to the factory. The thing I love the most about this career is the problem solving aspect of making stuff –bringing something from paper to life.

Course content

What will you study on the BEng/MEng Design Engineering?

Whether you opt for the BEng Design Engineering or MEng Design Engineering you will build the confidence to develop and implement modern technologies relevant to electronic products and systems, learning to communicate ideas effectively.

Active participation in industry-sponsored live projects help you to gain leadership qualities, management skills and confidence in your work, both on individual and group projects. There is also the option to apply for a placement year between your second and third years.

The MEng Design Engineering honours degree allows you to specialise further and give you the option to study new and emerging areas in Design Engineering. You will demonstrate your advanced skills and mastery of the area by working on a team project in your chosen specialism.

What is the difference between the BEng and MEng course?

There are two honours degree programmes available for each area of study – a three-year Bachelor of Engineering (BEng) and a four-year Master of Engineering (MEng).

Both degrees share a common first year but due to the advanced nature of the MEng programme students must demonstrate they have the high-level knowledge and skills required at the end of year 2 and 3 to progress on the programme.

You must apply direct to either the BEng or the MEng, but you can also choose to change programme. You must apply for the MEng in Year 1 if you want to guarantee your student loan will cover the fourth year of fees.

      This module aims to introduce a systems engineering approach for the development of solutions to embedded problems. You will be exposed to the complexities of the design and evaluation of sociotechnic systems, including problems of managing existing components, legacy systems and other imposed constraints such as legal frameworks.

    • System-on-a-chip Design (30 credits) - Optional

      This module aims to introduce you to the design and implementation of systems typically having potentially complex concurrent behaviour, stringent timing requirements, and significant communication requirements in a single field programmable gate array (FPGA) chip. Examples of the system-on-a-chip (SoC) are ubiquitous and range from portable devices such as cell phones to larger devices such as routers or aircraft controllers. You will learn how to design and integrate central processing unit (CPU, here we use MicroBlaze architecture) with a range of software drivers, periphery interface circuits and memory banks to form a soft processor to suit your specific applications. This design flow will create a complete computing system which constitutes a whole embedded SoC design.

You can find more information about this course in the programme specification. Optional modules are usually available at levels 5 and 6, although optional modules are not offered on every course. Where optional modules are available, you will be asked to make your choice during the previous academic year. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
