Find the engineering course for you

The University of Portsmouth is the perfect place to start your journey in engineering

Engineering uses science, mathematics and empirical evidence to design, plan, build and maintain things like engines, power systems, machines, buildings and structures. From new product innovations to large-scale public projects, engineering keeps the modern world moving forward.

Depending on which area of engineering you decide to pursue - civil, mechanical or electrical - your undergraduate or postgraduate qualification could help you become an aerospace engineer, a product design engineer, geotechnical engineer, or an expert in sustainable construction.

Why study Engineering?

  • We have lots of links with industry, including local organisations. You could do an optional placement year at companies such as Airbus Defence and Space, Network Rail, Highways England, London Underground, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and GE Aviation.
  • We have foundation degree options if you’ve got ambitions for a career in engineering, but don’t meet the entry requirements for one of our Bachelor's degree programmes.
  • Access top of the line equipment, laboratories, experimental and computational facilities and expert technical support staff to get the most out of your studies.

Discover civil engineering

I enjoyed everything about studying Civil Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. The lecturers were immensely supportive, and the degree is an excellent one to have -- it opens doors wherever you go, and you'll be highly sought-after.
