Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Qualified, skilled engineers are in demand – but in short supply – throughout the world. We’ll help you take the first step on your journey to an exciting career in engineering.

Students accepted to the Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year are entitled to funding throughout their studies. We recommend that you apply and secure funding for the full five-year, MEng programme. This can be reduced if you decide not to take a placement year. As a foundation year student, you can also benefit from living on campus.

Taking Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is a smart way to start on your career path. Not everyone has the qualifications they need to begin a particular degree course straight away. This course will build on your existing qualifications in subjects such as mathematics and physics so you can pursue your ambition to become a world-class engineer. As well as attending lectures and seminars, you’ll learn through hands-on practical experience. Theoretical subjects such as mathematics, physics and engineering science are mainly assessed by examination. Skills-based subjects such as engineering projects and communications are assessed by coursework, presentations and lab reports. There are two one-week project breaks during which you’ll work in a team to gain practical knowledge of control systems, designing models, analysing design and calculating physical parameters. Once you’ve successfully completed your foundation year and achieved the grades needed for your chosen engineering course, you can progress to the first year of one of Brunel’s engineering degree programmes.

This foundation year is your first step towards an engineering degree. Students who continued to our BEng/MEng programmes now work for companies including Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, GE Energy, Airbus and British Airways.
