¿Qué aprenderé?

The MEng Engineering degree is a four-year first degree that delivers the breadth and depth that you will need in the world of engineering. It is designed to produce graduates who will go on and lead engineering teams. Your first two years offer you a broad-based engineering education. You are then able to specialise in your third and fourth years.At Durham in each year of your degree you will take six modules, the year is divided into three terms and there are examinations at the end of each year.**Year 1**You will study four modules in engineering, one in mathematics and one optional module. In your engineering modules, you will receive instruction in the use of 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) software (e.g. SolidWorks), be taught how to implement engineering algorithms into computer code (specifically in C and MATLAB) and take part in a number of practical labs. You will also take part in a group design activity where you have to design, build and test a device to solve specific engineering challenge. Recent examples include miniature hydroelectric generators and chain-climbing robots. On the course, you also attend lectures, problem classes and supervisions with academic staff.**Year 2**Engineering and mathematics now occupy the full six modules in the timetable.You will undertake a major design project as part of a small team with guidance from an academic supervisor and an ‘Industrial Tutor’ (an engineer from industry). This lets you put into practice the skills and knowledge that you have developed in your lectures. The end result is a detailed design report and a series of CAD drawings good enough to manufacture a device from.**Year 3**In the third year of the degree the course splits into the following streams: Civil, Electrical, Electronic and Mechanical Engineering.A major team design project now occupies a whole module of the course where you consider the device as a product and do everything from basic market research to design for manufacture. For the Civil stream you will undertake a major design project supervised by practising civil engineers (plus an academic supervisor), which will allow you to develop new skills and knowledge in various areas, from bridge design to geotechnical structures. Practical skills, in addition to the weekly laboratory sessions, cover topics from land surveying to industrial problem solving with interaction with local industry, depending on the selected stream.In line with our integrated approach to engineering many of the modules taken in the third year are found in more than one stream.**Year 4**The highlight of the degree for many of our students is the final year project. This activity, which is half the year in most streams, involves working closely with an academic supervisor on an area of cutting-edge research and development. The best student projects have been featured in internationally recognised engineering journals, indicating that our students are amongst the finest young engineers in the world. In addition to this, you will take modules on advanced engineering topics.The five final-year streams are Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Aeronautics, Electronic Engineering, and New and Renewable Energy. The modules for each stream can be found here : https://www.durham.ac.uk/study/courses/h100/, you will typically study six taught modules and the balance of work is project-based. Students on most streams can usually choose their sixth module from a list of options.
