Engineering at Portsmouth is split between two departments: The School of Energy and Electronic Engineering, and The School of Mechanical and Design Engineering.
Who we are
The School of Mechanical and Design Engineering (SMDE)
Our School of Mechanical and Design Engineering offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses in mechanical and manufacturing engineering, as well as product design, industrial design and our unique and creative innovation engineering courses.
The School of Energy and Electronic Engineering (SENE)
Our School of Energy and Electronic Engineering is home to all our undergraduate and postgraduate electronic engineering courses, as well as our petroleum, gas and energy engineering degrees.
What we offer
Most of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are accredited by professional bodies in the UK.
Every year, hundreds of engineering students showcase their final projects to employers and industry experts as part of our Student Projects Open Day. The best projects are awarded prizes which are sponsored by leading engineering and technology companies including BT, Cisco, DSTL, IET, HP, Pall Europe and Xyratex.
A year in industry
More than 50% of employers actively recruit graduates who have relevant work experience. So, taking an optional yearlong placement is an excellent way to get ahead in the job hunt. Our Student Placement and Employability Centre (SPEC) is dedicated to setting your career on the right course.
The Maths Café is a daily drop-in facility, available to any student of the University where you can receive help on any maths or stats problem you encounter in your studies. We also provide handouts on key topics and computer aided learning packages.
