Engineering areas

Engineering areas

If you wish to qualify in a specific engineering area, at least six modules from your total of ten must fall within one of the engineering areas defined by the Faculty Board.

The title of the engineering area for which you are qualified will appear on each of your Part IIA and IIB transcripts. In some cases, you may be qualified for more than one engineering area, in which case all will appear on your transcript. It is not essential that your engineering area at Part IIB is the same as that at Part IIA.

If you do not wish to choose six modules from an engineering area you may instead qualify in Engineering (i.e. General Engineering). Your choice of modules is less restricted, but you must still follow other requirements about module choices (e.g. sets).

For advice on engineering areas and module choices go first to your Director of Studies. The staff listed above will be happy to provide expert advice on their Engineering Areas.

General queries about Manufacturing Engineering should be sent to the MET Course Administrator; detailed queries about academic course content may be sent to Dr James Moultrie or Dr Tim Minshall.

Extension activities

You must also complete a Part IIA Extension Activity, and in most (but not all) cases your choice of this is not restricted. For further details see Part IIA Extension Activities.

Michaelmas and Lent term

Online

Dr AJ Kabla
Language course Open to all Michaelmas & Lent terms Contact staff in charge for assessment. Mr David Tual

*If this ExA is under-subscribed, the Michaelmas session will be withdrawn and only the Lent session will take place. Students will be contacted if necessary.

**If over-subscribed, additional sessions for this ExA will be available week 2 of Lent term.

General notes

  • You should sign up for your ExA as soon as possible at the start of the Michaelmas Term (even for Lent ExAs). Do this before booking your module labs.
  • Detailed arrangements for each ExA will be posted near the sign-up sheets.
  • If you have any queries about an activity, you can ask the Chief Technician in the lab where the sign-up sheet is posted, or the staff member in charge.
  • Each activity should occupy you for about 16 hours and has 20 marks of credit available.
