Engineering with Business BEng (Hons) Course overview
This course takes an interdisciplinary and integrated approach to engineering, business and management, enabling you to develop the leadership skills demanded by modern, global businesses.
We build your professional engineering, management and business skills, with a focus on core engineering and design, entrepreneurship, innovation, strategy and business sustainability.
Individual and group projects involving engineering design and business management will demonstrate your potential to future employers.
- We train you to understand and analyse the broad context where engineering systems are used, integrating processes and information, and managing the challenges of complex interactions
- Benefit from strong links to industry through guest lectures and projects working with high profile engineers
- A collaborative programme with Bayes Business School, a leading global business school known for its world-class business education and deep engagement with practice
- Benefit from world-leading research facilities where new engineering systems are designed, developed and implemented for industry
- Take an optional placement year, or divide your placement over two summer periods, using our research strengths and links with industry to boost your employability.
We have every expectation that these degrees will receive full accreditation from the Institution of Engineering and Technology, providing a path for you to gain Chartered Engineering status.
You will develop a background in an interdisciplinary range of engineering subjects, as well as a firm understanding of management studies and engineering design.
The Engineer in Society is an innovative theme across each year. We introduce you to the economic, social and technical context where engineers work, and develop your social responsibility, knowledge, and topical engineering skills.
Our mostly shared first year offers a foundation in the principles of engineering in mathematics, engineering physics, electronics and computing, as well as building teamwork and communication skills.

Teaching and assessment
The course is led by academic staff from our active Research Centres, supported by specialist professionals from industry. The course is delivered through lectures, tutorials, group design exercises, laboratory classes and engineering workshops. Learning involves a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational study.
Our approach is to encourage critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. The design exercises provide the opportunity for students to be engaged in cross-disciplinary challenges, preparing the way for tackling larger problems that span traditional engineering boundaries.
Assessment is by coursework and examinations. Group learning and communication skills are addressed through design studies and presentations. Practical and technical skills are assessed through laboratory work, data analysis and project reports.
Grades obtained in each year count towards the final degree classification, with increasing weight given to the later years.
