Course description

Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year is a one year programme designed to improve your mathematical and scientific understanding and skills to a level where you will be able to start an engineering degree in the Faculty of Science and Engineering in one of the following subject areas:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Materials Science & Engineering

On the Foundation Year you will study mathematics, physics and (where appropriate) chemistry. In addition, you will take modules in Academic Skills and ICT (Information and Communication Technology). You will also complete a group project, related to your intended degree programme and supervised by an academic from your future Department.

What are the special features of this programme? On the Integrated Foundation Year, you are an undergraduate at The University of Manchester. The course is taught at The University, by academics from The University. Provided you achieve the specific progression criteria for your chosen degree, completion of the integrated Foundation Year guarantees you a place on first year of your chosen degree.
