Quotes from our External Examiners
“The overall impression gained was of a professionally organised and well run course which adequately meets the requirements of the relevant accreditation bodies. The Head of School and his staff are to be commended for their dedication to the formation of professional engineers of the highest standard.”“All staff are committed to make the student experience as positive as possible. On meeting with the students the feedback was extremely positive. Newcastle University have reason to be proud of the individuals developed during this degree course.”
We offer the following degree programmes, which cover the related areas of mechanical, materials and manufacturing engineering. The main emphasis is on the technical core of engineering and you will therefore need to have an enthusiastic attitude to subjects such as mathematics and science.
All our degrees have been CEng (Chartered Engineer) accredited by the appropriate professional bodies the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (formerly the Institution of Electrical Engineers).
We also offer Foundation Year entry to all of these degree programmes for students who have good qualifications but not including those specifically required for entry to our normal first year (ie not having sufficient mathematics and/or physical science background).
