School of Engineering

Founded in collaboration with Siemens, the University of Lincoln’s School of Engineering has a core philosophy of research-led teaching. The engineers of the future need to be highly skilled, creative professionals who can adapt to new challenges and deliver sustainable solutions in an international environment. At Lincoln, we aim to prepare our graduates for the challenges of employment in industry and for further study and research. Our ground-breaking collaboration with Siemens has won prestigious Lord Stafford and Times Higher Education awards.

How You Study

Students on all foundation programmes study a combination of core and subject specific modules during the first year as part of an integrated degree programme. The combination of modules studied is tailored to the needs of the full degree programme that students wish to progress onto after successful completion of the foundation year.

Students study three modules at the start of the programme, which aim to build a foundation in mathematics and introduce key study skills required for further study. Students study a further module which introduces fundamental aspects of a specific area of science relevant to the chosen foundation year programme. Students also study an integrative module which is aligned to the full degree programme which students' wish to progress onto upon successful completion of the Science Foundation Year.

Following successful completion of the foundation year, students will then progress onto a full degree programme. This means students will study for a total of four years for a standard degree, or five years if they take an integrated Master’s degree. Course specific information on the full degree programmes within the School of Engineering can be found on our course pages.



How You Are Assessed

The way students will be assessed will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a lab report or essay, written exmas, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples.
