Developed in consultation with industry and professional institutions our Design Engineering course produces graduates that are both creative and highly skilled. Excellent career opportunities await our students in a number of areas such as the technology, aeronautical and automotive industries.

The optional placement enhances employment prospects further and students have the choice of taking a placement either here in the UK or abroad. Recently students have taken placements at Robert Bosch Ltd, Bourne Steel Ltd and Parkgate Engineering Consultants.

As well as displaying final year projects in the annual Festival of Design & Innovation, students also have the opportunity to commercially exploit their final year projects and turn design dreams into a commercial reality with support from BU Innovations Ltd.
