You take a selection of taught modules (110 credits). These include language options at different levels (20 credits) in reading and writing and in listening and speaking, plus engineering modules (90 credits) including: bioengineering; design of mechanical power transmissions; thermal power and propulsive systems; dynamics and control; joining technology; continuum mechanics; methods in industrial research and development. You also complete a module in writing dissertations in science and engineering (10 credits) and an individual project (60 credits).
