Undergraduate Pathway in Engineering

High-calibre engineers are in great demand, as the modern world continues to progress. Engineering covers an enormous range of activities: from the products in our homes to the electricity that lights and heats us, from mobile phone signals to the dams that keep cities and towns supplied with water. Edinburgh Napier's courses are practical and flexible, and they emphasise problem-solving, project work and case studies. Features include optional paid work placements, professional accreditation, hands-on lab experiments and industrial site visits.
