What Do Our Alumni Say?
Ferris M. Alumni Career Insights, Engineering
Testimonial quote icon

Our tutor was amazing. He knew the answer to every question that you could think of about engineering, and knew about everyone’s specialist subjects and was happy to discuss opportunities in each field with us.
My favourite aspect of the programme would be going on trips such as the tour of the London Underground, and how engineering plays such a vital role.

It’s so much easier to learn and focus when there’s something that’s always keeping your attention rather than just having to focus only on lectures and classroom learning.
The thing that I found the most fun was socialising with everyone, whether it’s engineers or the medics or business people. We’ve only known them for two weeks, and this sounds so cheesy, but I feel like I’ve known them for years because we’re always together, we’re always helping each other.

Immerse™ Engineering Sample Modules

To see how the programme is structured, download the Academic Insights timetable here.

A man teaching to the students while pointing on his presentation
Module 1 - Electrical Engineering

You will apply the principles of electromagnetism to understand a range of electrical components such as digital circuits and sensors. You will then enrich your understanding by exploring digital circuits at the base of modern laptops and smartphones, addressing their limitations. The theory is then put into practice as you construct your own radio receiver.

Following a review of the key principles of kinematics and the Newtonian laws of motion, you will explore rigid body dynamics for 2D and 3D objects before exploring the engineering design of earthquake-resistant buildings and pitching your own ideas based on an in-class scenario.

At the forefront of nanoscience and nanotechnology research, you will explore this fascinating and diverse field to evaluate existing materials and consider new substances at the forefront of current research. Participants will also explore how new materials are developed and tested.

Participants will be presented with a known problem and asked to work in pairs to create a solution based on the engineering principles that they have encountered. They will then present their idea and demonstrate a working prototype to their peers before facing questions.
