Our General Engineering degree builds a strong foundation in the fundamentals of engineering, with a focus on areas key for addressing the challenges of the 21st century. Experimental and practical skills are developed in tandem with mathematical and analytical approaches with a strong emphasis on project-based design work from the outset of the degree. Systems thinking, sustainability, modelling and simulation, software and programming, and engineering design, management and entrepreneurship are strong themes that cross through technical modules establishing core scientific and engineering principles in electrical, mechanical, thermal and fluidic domains. In the later years of the degree a substantial individual project is undertaken.

Key benefits

  • 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 wider disciplines at King's, such as business, entrepreneurship, sustainability and law, to unlock a better understanding of the commercial and social context of engineering.
  • You'll build your critical thinking and future workplace skills with collaborative project work from the first term.
  • Study in brand-new and inspiring experimental labs, maker spaces, fabrication lab and design and build spaces with state-of-the-art equipment.
  • Partnered with the UK Electronic Skills Foundation giving students access to bespoke summer placements, scholarships and competitions.
  • Study as part of a diverse student cohort: King’s is one of the leading Russell Group universities by proportion of female undergraduates on its Engineering courses (HESA 2019/20).
  • Your third year allows you to build knowledge with specialist modules.

This degree allows me to engage in a wide range of skills to study in multiple fields, which gives me a better idea of where I’d like to concentrate my efforts in in the future.
