The twin strengths of the Engineering course at Cambridge are its breadth and its quality.
The course lasts four years (leading to both MEng and BA degrees) and covers almost all disciplines of engineering (aeronautical, mechanical, civil, manufacturing and information), with specialisation not starting until the final term of the second year. The great advantage of this approach is that real-world engineering problems are inherently multi-disciplinary in nature and the course provides a rigorous foundation across all subjects; the final two years allow enough time for students to develop skills in their chosen field up to specialist level.
The Department of Engineering is internationally recognised as being of the very highest quality. These high standards apply not only to our research, but also to our teaching (lectures, coursework projects, laboratory demonstrations and supervisions). At Trinity Hall, Engineering students are supported by a team of Fellows with a wide range of specialisations. As well as guiding and assisting our students in making the most of their time in Cambridge, many supervisions (the small–group teaching sessions that are at the heart of teaching in Cambridge) are led by our Fellows. In recent years, this environment has helped Trinity Hall Engineers, as a group, to become among the most successful of any Cambridge college.
