Or
d) At least three ‘A’ level passes in Mathematics, Chemistry and either Computer Science or Engineering Drawing with an
‘O’ level pass in Physics with ‘C’ grade or better.
Entry to the programme is competitive and in many cases the holding of the minimum requirements will not ensure admission.

Structure of the Programme

The BEng (Hons) Programme requires full time study over a period of five years. In each year, other than the Industrial Attachment Period, in order to be regarded as a full-time student, a student shall register for and attend a minimum number of courses. A Part is essentially a year of study. Each course is designated as Part I, II, III IV or V course.
