What you'll study

* All modules are subject to availability

BEng with Foundation Year

Students who require Foundation Year study will register on the Electronic Engineering with Foundation Year programme. Upon successful completion you will progress onto the Control and Instrumentation Engineering programme. The foundation year has been designed to prepare you for entry on the degree. You'll study the following modules

  • Preparing for Learning in Higher Education
  • Foundation Maths A
  • Foundation Engineering
  • Foundation Maths B
  • Engineering Technology
  • Group Challenge (Engineering and Technology)

BEng with a Year Abroad

Spend your third year studying abroad at a university of your choice. During this time, you will follow a programme of study that will be agreed between yourself and the School of Engineering prior to your departure. You will take all assessments set by the host university while you are overseas, for which marks will be awarded and counted towards your degree.

BEng with an Industrial Placement

Spend your third year working in industry, gaining valuable skills and experience – and an income. The industrial year is fully assessed and counts towards your final degree result; it therefore requires the successful completion of academic assignments, a portfolio and a final report.

Integrated Masters with a Year Abroad

Spend your fourth year studying abroad at a university of your choice. During this time, you will follow a programme of study that will be agreed between yourself and the School prior to your departure. You will take all assessments set by the host university while you are overseas, for which marks will be awarded and counted towards your degree.

About the course

Designed to meet a growing industry requirement for skilled graduates, this degree in Control and Instrumentation Engineering equips you for a challenging and rewarding career in sectors including petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, food processing and manufacturing. Planned with input from industry experts, this programme builds on the University’s reputation for engineering excellence. Your learning experience is underpinned by academics who are practising engineers – many of them holding chartered status – and are experts in areas such as biomedical instrumentation, robotics, mechatronics and remote sensing.

There are a number of course options available for studying Control and Instrumentation Engineering at Hull. You can choose to study for either a BEng or MEng degree; both offer the chance to study abroad for a year or earn while you learn in a one-year industrial placement.

We place a major focus on learning practical skills in this programme, offering state-of-the-art workshops, specialist computing facilities and teaching and project laboratories. Your career prospects are enhanced by the University’s unique location within the Yorkshire and Humber region. The ‘energy estuary’ is rapidly emerging as Europe’s renewable energy capital, with engineering giant Siemens and its partner Associated British Ports investing £310 million in a wind turbine production facility at Green Port Hull. Meanwhile, Vivergo Fuels’ plant near the city is set to become the country’s largest producer of bioethanol.

Future prospects

Employability is a key goal of our programmes, and we aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills for a successful career in 21st-century engineering.

Career prospects for engineering graduates continue to be excellent, and many receive several firm offers of employment even before graduating. A recent report from industry body EngineeringUK highlighted a current annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers within the engineering sector.

The Humber region is rapidly emerging as 'the energy estuary’ and 29% of all enterprises are engineering-related, with an overall turnover of £61 billion. This has created a range of challenging and rewarding positions for talented engineering graduates.

The region’s petrochemicals industry – worth £6 billion per year – has a particular need for control and instrumentation engineers. The growth in the avionics, biomedical, aeronautical, energy and space science sectors has also increased opportunities within them.

The expertise you gain as an engineering graduate – your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, ability to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams – are much in demand in all areas of engineering and this is reflected favourably in starting salaries and average earnings. You will also find that your degree makes you highly sought-after by leading companies in the global market place; an engineering degree from Hull can therefore lead to a career anywhere in the world.
