Teaching and Learning

The School of Engineering prides itself on the quality of its teaching and the outstanding support offered to our students. We understand that students who wish to pursue a career in Engineering arise from a variety of academic and industrial backgrounds, and as such, we ensure that our courses are designed to accommodate all students. We teach the foundation knowledge and skills which are required for undergraduate study in year one and build upon these in later years, to stretch and challenge students in becoming highly skilled engineers, who are prepared for a career in engineering or post-graduate study.

At UWTSD, we endeavour to be sector leading in teaching and learning. This is achieved by ensuring that our teaching is structured to incorporate small class sizes, modern teaching technologies, weekly support sessions and one-to-one tutorials so that students remain on course to reach their potential and achieve success. We have developed close relationships with Schools and Further Education Colleges to ensure that our teaching methods are reflective of the teaching styles that are familiar to our students, easing the transition to undergraduate study.
