Overview

Engineering relies on a way of thinking that combines mathematical and analytical skills with a desire to find innovative solutions to problems. If you are naturally curious, or the kind of person who asks ‘why’ things are the way they are and how they can be improved, then studying General Engineering at King’s could be for you.

At King’s, we are taking a fresh look at Engineering. This is reflected in the way our new General Engineering degree brings together, within one degree, the diversity of high-tech engineering specialisms with an innovative, multi-disciplinary, project-led teaching approach.

The course looks at engineering problems as a whole and in context, allowing students to build the critical technical capabilities required to flourish in 21st century engineering.

- A unique blend of leading edge engineering specialisms that provide a holistic perspective on engineering, directly applicable to a whole range of future focused careers.

- Our course connects engineering expertise with that of King’s wider disciplines, such as business, entrepreneurship, sustainability and law, to unlock a better understanding of the commercial and social context of engineering.

- Builds critical thinking and future workplace skills with collaborative project work from the first term.

Course detail

Description

General Engineers at King’s will benefit from a course that builds technical engineering, design and commercial capabilities upon a strong, analytical foundation of mathematics and computing.

You will study topics that include design for engineers, mathematics, computing, robotics, mechatronics, sustainability, electrical engineering, mechanics, materials and manufacturing, and thermo-fluids. The study of these specialist subjects is underpinned by a design and build approach that can be applied to create and improve technology, products and services.

Our course will encourage innovative approaches to problem solving. This will include collaborative project work with your fellow students, which will embed well-rounded team work, communication and negotiation skills that matter in the future workplace.
