We will introduce you to the mathematical and scientific principles underpinning first-year undergraduate studies in engineering and technology.
Semester 1 covers basic principles in post-GCSE mathematics and engineering.
In Semester 2 you will develop your understanding of mathematics, and mechanical and electrical engineering principles.
You will also take two modules in engineering applications. In addition, you will develop an appreciation of the role of new technology in society and you will gain hands-on experience of technological equipment.
Whilst a personal PC/laptop/tablet with access to the University online system might be of advantage, it is not a necessary requirement. All students will have access to PCs on-campus. Additional print costs may be required to submit coursework that cannot or should not be submitted on-line.
This is normally a one-year course and you will need to take eight modules over two semesters. As our courses are reviewed regularly as part of our quality assurance framework, the modules available may vary from those listed here.
- Fundamentals and Applications of Technology (double)
- Basic Mechanical Engineering Principles
- Basic Electronic Engineering Principles
- Foundation Engineering Mathematics I (FEM I) - prerequisite for FEM II
- Foundation Engineering Mathematics II (FEM II)
- Engineering Applications
- Introductory Mathematics (alternate to FEM I and FEM II)
- Foundations of Computer Programming
- Basic Data Analysis

Free language courses for students - the Open Module
Free language courses are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students on many of our courses, and can be taken as a credit on some courses.
Please note that the free language courses are not available if you are:
- studying at a Brookes partner college
- studying on any of our teacher education courses or postgraduate education courses.
Planned next generation facilities
Engineering, automotive and motorsport courses are currently based in a purpose-built £9m facility which is well equipped and the envy of many local organisations. As we continue our estates strategy for the future we are planning next-generation facilities for these courses, with the continuing aim of providing an environment in which technical expertise is enhanced by creativity and imagination.
On rare occasions we may need to make changes to our course programmes after they have been published
on the website. For more information, please visit our
