The School of Engineering and Built Environment offers a comprehensive suite of programmes spanning Civil, Mechanical, Electronic and Environmental disciplines to Integrated Product Design and Software & Computer Systems Engineering including Digital Security. We also have industry leading courses in Construction Management, Quantity Surveying and Property Management. In some of our Computing Courses we combine traditional engineering skills with innovative and creative design skills to produce 3D capable software, games as well as functional yet stylish products. We are especially proud of our industry links and we are fortunate to welcome a large number of part-time students each year to our courses who bring a great deal of practical experience to our classes.
