BEng (Honours) in
(UCAS: CH61 BEng/SpE)
The Sports Engineering degree offers a special combination of subjects from the areas of engineering, design and sports science to facilitate the development of high-performance sports equipment. In Year 1, students are introduced to human anatomy and physiology alongside conventional 1st year engineering subjects. In Year 2, biomechanics is introduced to improve understanding of the forces relating to the human body. As well as further design and production subjects, materials and thermodynamics are introduced in a sports context. In Year 3, more advanced mechanical design and physiology subjects are delivered in parallel.
Throughout these first three years of study, the Integrating Studies modules enable students to develop transferrable skills such as teamworking, and to utilise theoretical knowledge in practical project work. this culminates in two major pieces of project work in Year 4. Students undertake an individual project in which they can design a sports-related product, putting to use the skills and knowledge they have gained during the previous three years. In addition, the Product Development Project gives students the opportunity to experience the "real world". Teams of students act as consultants for some of the Department's industrial partners to assist in resolving particular issues.
