BEng (Hons) inSustainable Engineering

Loughborough College is excited to be able to offer our new BEng (Hons) degree in Sustainable Engineering validated and awarded by Loughborough University. This is a prestigious opportunity to study for a degree awarded by one of the premier engineering universities in the supportive environment of Loughborough College.

Awarded by:

Loughborough University

Course Content

The degree will cover all the fundamental principles of mechanical and electrical/electronic engineering, with each aspect – ranging from fluid mechanics and thermodynamics to power transmission and microcontrollers – being focused on the impact of products, systems and processes on the environment and on making those products (and their manufacture, packaging and distribution) more sustainable. The latter stages of the course will cover cutting-edge 21st century technologies – smart materials, smart manufacturing, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, simulation and virtualisation – mainly through problem-based learning.

“I chose to study at Loughborough College because the reputation of the College is excellent. I chose Loughborough as it is a sporting town, yet quiet and accessible from my home in Saudi Arabia. I also like the British accent! and I would recommend students to study at Loughborough College.”
