Bangor University Engineering

To us engineering is exciting and fun, not geeky – because engineers are literally changing our world.  We are proud of the fact that the work we do contributes to the development of the latest electronics and technology.

Committed to making our planet a better place for everyone

We are also committed to making our planet a better place for everyone, which is why our academics are researching how to make solar panels more efficient, how to make communication cheaper and faster and developing medical devices to treat cancer without drugs.  We want technology to work better, for everyone.

Close links with the School of Computer Science

We work very closely with the School of Computer Science and are a lively community of academic staff, undergraduate and postgraduate students and postdoctoral research workers.

The technology we work on is changing daily so we make sure that we partner with other institutions and industry which enables us to keep our degree programmes current, interesting and relevant.

Undergraduate Courses

We are only interested in being the best, so we strive for excellence in teaching and research and will teach you how to learn and go on learning throughout your careers and for the rest of your lives.

Our greatest strength

We are a small School and we believe this is one of our greatest strengths. Our size means that we are able to see all our students as individuals and understand their strengths. Our office doors are always open to all our students’ whether they want to discuss their academic work, research theories or just have a natter about life. So you see, anyone that chooses to study with us gets help every step of the way and will graduate with a qualification that employers love as well as memories that last a life time.

Come and join in the fun, help us engineer the future…

Many of our degrees are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology. This means that they comply with very strict level of academic quality and when you graduate you can gain automatic exemption from the admissions examinations of the IET. This entitles you to apply for membership and, after experience in the workplace, become a chartered engineer.
