The Science and Engineering International Foundation Year programme at Durham University offers you a pathway to the first year of your chosen undergraduate degree.
Degrees in engineering typically cover engineering basics in addition to a specialty area or technical field of study. Find out about the curricula for these programs, and learn about career options, job growth and salary for general engineering program graduates. Career options for individuals with a engineering degree include being a sales engineer, industrial engineer,Chemical,mechanical,megatronics, electrical or an environmental engineer. Graduates of engineering degree programs can work in positions that require a strong knowledge of math, physics and design systems. The project management and problem-solving skills students develop during their time in these programs can also be used to pursue employment in non-technical fields, such as business or health care. Some sample job options are profiled below:
