At the beginning of their third year our students must pick between the 3 year BEng and the 4 year MEng options. Those who decide to undertake the BEng tackle 2 design projects and a handful of modules before the Christmas break; following this they complete their major project in the spring and summer terms.

However those who elect for the MEng have another full year of design projects alongside other modules, focusing on research & investigatory techniques as well as ergonomics and other manufacturing modules.

Both BEng and MEng students undertake a 'RSA Student Design Awards' brief as one of their individual projects during this time - one of the worlds longest running student design competition which has been described as the Oscars of the design world. As a course we can boast a large number of alumni who have recieved awards or been shortlisted across many years of the competition.

To see examples of some third year work take a look below.
