The School offers a wide variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The undergraduate programmes include both traditional engineering courses in electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and design and are complemented by some highly successful programmes in computer-related fields e.g. Multimedia Technology Design and BSc Broadcast Media (Design and Technology). The Undergraduate programmes are either 3 year full-time or 4 year thick sandwich, with an extra year for the MEng route. There is flexibility for students to transfer to either of these modes of study. In the sandwich mode students spend the third year in industry. The sandwich programmes are highly recommended as students not only get paid (between £12,000 and £20,000), but many come back from their placement year with a job offer from their placement company. The Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is for applicants that do not have the right entry qualifications. This programme is designed to strengthen students in engineering and design subjects enabling students to take up the first year of their chosen degree after successful completion of the Foundations course.
The postgraduate programmes again offer both traditional engineering courses in electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and design and are complemented by some highly successful programmes in computer-related fields. There are three modes of study : 1 year full-time, 2 - 3 years part-time (enabling students to work whilst studying) or 3 – 5 years distance learning (where students can study for a masters at home). A number of very popular programmes address the global concerns of energy conservation and environment e.g. Building Services Engineering with Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Electrical power, Sustainable Energy : Technologies and Management.
Assessment: There are a broad range of assessment methods employed including assignments, individual and group projects, laboratories and examinations in May each year.
The School of Engineering and Design is one of the largest and most successful engineering and design Schools in the UK, providing a wide range of exciting, forward-looking undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Recognised as a centre of excellence in engineering and design with a strong focus on modern science and technology, the School has an international reputation in research and prides itself on high quality teaching supported by excellent research facilities. The School's high reputation has led to extensive and close collaborative links with industry. These links and the sandwich placement scheme for undergraduates and industrial links at the dissertation stage for postgraduates have meant that the School's graduates are highly sought after as employees. Brunel University's Placement and Careers Centre (PCC) were named winners for the third year running at the National Placement and Internship Awards on Wednesday 18 January 2012.
The School has 5 academic subject areas : Advanced Manufacturing and Enterprise Engineering, Brunel Design, Civil Engineering, Electronic and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Facilities include modern, well-equipped engineering, design and computer laboratories, motorsport workshop and wind tunnels, and for the digital media courses, a broadcast TV studio. For students on the aviation, aeronautics and aerospace courses there is a state of the art flight simulator with a VTOL facility enabling the testing of project and design work in a practical setting.
Brunel University has been ranked top in London, 6th in the UK and 35th in the world in a new world ranking of the top 100 universities founded in the last 50 years, the Times Higher Education.
Brunel Engineering and Design courses feature high in UK league tables. In The Guardian University Guide 2013 Design featured 2nd in the “Art and Design” category. In the current Research Assessment Exercise, 95% of research academics in the School achieved international standard, with 100% achieving this level in General Engineering. General Engineering research at Brunel is ranked 5th in the country and Mechanical Engineering is ranked 8th in the country by Research Power.
Many undergraduate courses are accredited with UK professional organisations including the IMechE, the IET and the Institute of Engineering Designers. Some of the IT related programmes may also apply for membership of the British Computer Society. Almost all the postgraduate taught courses enjoy accreditation and approval status with, for instance, the IET, the IMechE and CIBSE.
We are also very proud that in recent student satisfaction surveys Brunel Design featured in the top four, as the most satisfied students in the UK in the “Art and Design” category.
Teaching on the Building Services Engineering courses have also recently been commended. The courses received the Happold Brilliant Award for teaching excellence by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers.
The School has is a thriving student population with approximately 1600 undergraduate students, 1000 postgraduate taught students, 300 research students and fellows and 110 academic staff.
