Engineers are needed now more than ever. At Durham we produce world class engineers who are continually in high demand.
The School is one of a small number of general engineering departments in the UK. We consider the discipline as an integrated subject rather than sub dividing the discipline into narrow areas. Our courses produce modern engineers who are capable of solving problems across the traditional engineering boundaries; for example, modern aircraft are run entirely by software and one critical problem in electronics design is the cooling of the devices.
ECS offers two engineering programmes for undergraduates: a four year MEng and a three year BEng. Both courses benefit from Durham's integrated approach to engineering, starting with the study of all disciplines and specialisation in later years. This approach also allows you to make an informed choice of which specialisation to follow as most applicants have little direct experience of engineering disciplines.
