- Learn the fundamentals of a range of different topics related to the subsequent progression options.
- Study mathematics, basic engineering principles and associated subjects.
- Build your underpinning knowledge and practical skills of engineering and mathematics.
A route into the engineering, mathematics, and physics degrees for students who do not possess the usually accepted entry qualifications, the Foundation Year also gives opportunities for mature students to gain access to the university's engineering, mathematics, and physics courses.
How you learn
You're taught and assessed using techniques used on the degree courses, including assignments, lab exercises, individual and group presentations and formal examinations. This helps you to prepare for the transition to an undergraduate degree. The majority of teaching takes place at our City Campus, with some teaching at Sheffield College.
You learn through:
- seminars and laboratory sessions
- problem-based and practical activity-based sessions
- group and individual project work
Course leaders and tutors
Tim's research at MERI involves the application of theory and simulation techniques for the predictive modelling of real life systems that involve fluids.
You follow this course with three or four years of academic study on your chosen degree, plus an optional one year industrial training placement. Details of the placement are in the course entry for individual degree courses.
If you successfully complete the course, you can progress onto one of our specialised engineering degrees or onto the BSc (Honours) Mathematics or Physics degree.
