Designed in collaboration with industry, our accredited degrees aim to meet the growing demand for talented engineers in fields from aerospace and mobile phones to healthcare and renewable energy.

Foundation year

Gives you the skills and knowledge for entry on to a degree if you don’t quite meet the academic entry requirements.

Study abroad

We have partnerships with universities across the globe. Depending on your course, you can study for one trimester, or a full year, in another country.

Industrial placement

Work in industry as part of your degree. Depending on your course, you can spend part of your degree on placement. See your course page for specific details.

Integrated Masters

Some courses combine undergraduate and postgraduate study. The integrated Masters year is an extra year after your standard degree.


  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering

    Acquire a sound and relevant electrical and electronic engineering education early in the course – then develop specialist skills as you progress.

  • Robotics and Artificial Intelligence

    Drones are delivering life-saving medicines to remote islands. Robots are being sent into some of the most dangerous places on Earth. The world is ever-changing. And it needs skilled, hands-on people to keep it turning. That's where you come in.

Postgraduate Taught

  • MSc Artificial Intelligence


    Advance your knowledge of artificial intelligence and get ready to lead in this fast-moving field on our part-time, online MSC Artificial Intelligence course.

Postgraduate Research

  • Engineering research degrees

    Choose to study an MSc by Thesis or a PhD research degree in Engineering at Hull. Benefit from a wide range of expertise, experience and facilities.
