Acoustical Engineering with Foundation Year and Industrial Placement Year
This one-year full-time course is integrated with a further four-year undergraduate degree, and will equip you with the knowledge, skills and attributes needed to successfully meet the challenges of our BEng Acoustical Engineering. It is aimed at those who are highly motivated but who don’t have the traditional qualifications of UK mathematics and physics A Levels. Successful completion of this Foundation Year guarantees progression to one of seventeen subject areas, including Acoustical Engineering. You will study full time through a combination of lectures, workshops, tutorials, and independent study, with three hours of laboratory practical work each week.
The Industrial Placement Year is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The Industrial Placement Year will be taken between the second and third years of your main degree, extending your time at university to five years. During your year-long placement, you will fulfil the role of a trainee engineer on a full-time basis.
We accept a wide range of qualifications for undergraduate study which you can find listed below. To find the specific grades and entry requirements required for each course, please contact the University.

Whichever degree you are aiming for you will take six core modules: Electricity and Electronics, Engineering Principles, Coursework (including computer applications), Mathematics A and B, Mechanical Science, and Routes to Success. International students with an overall IELTS score of between 5.5 and 6.5 will replace one of the six modules above with English for Engineers and Scientists.
You will be assessed through a combination of examinations and coursework activities such as formal reports, research posters, laboratory reports, and reflective portfolios – all of which you will encounter during your degree.
