A Dyson degree is different.
A unique education supported by Dyson's leading engineers.

A unique education supported by Dyson's leading engineers.

BEng, General Engineering.

 

Life at Dyson is fast-paced. We disrupt each technology category that we enter. And the Dyson engineering degree (BEng) is no different. With cutting-edge facilities, world-leading engineers and real projects that bring theory to life, our Undergraduates are equipped to develop transformational future technologies.

 

The course is four years long. The first two years will give you a strong foundation in engineering theory and practice before you specialise in years three and four. The engineering fundamentals that you learn in your studies will be put to practice through your role within our Global Engineering team.

 

With no tuition fees and a salary from day one, you could graduate debt-free.

 

The Dyson degree has been developed by Dyson engineers alongside academics at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), the University of Warwick. The University of Warwick has a long-standing reputation for bridging the gap between industry and academia through their strong links with global engineering companies.


The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology (The Dyson Institute) is applying to the Office for Students for New Degree Awarding Powers, with the intention of delivering and awarding the Dyson degree itself from September 2019. Should New Degree Awarding Powers not be obtained, your degree will be delivered and awarded by the University of Warwick.

 

If you are offered a place at The Dyson Institute, we will inform you in good time as to whether your degree will be delivered and awarded by The Dyson Institute or the University of Warwick, and support you in deciding whether to accept your place.      

 

On graduation, you may want to continue your studies to Master’s level – The Dyson Institute intends to offer a Master’s of Engineering degree in the future which you may be eligible to study for on completion of your BEng.

  • Course content

    The degree is spread over four years. In the first two, you'll study a general engineering syllabus giving you a strong technical foundation across multiple disciplines. In years three and four, you’ll specialise in mechanical engineering, electronics, software, or electromechanical engineering. Dyson will guide you through the potential specialisation pathways to find the route best suited to you. 

    Alongside theoretical knowledge, you will develop applied skills, such as design, prototyping, PCB layout and computer aided design (CAD). You'll be working in a global business, playing a vital role in the development of future products.

  • Course structure

    During term time, one day is devoted to the teaching of one or two subjects. Another day is devoted to revision, academic projects and self-study. For the remainder of the week, you’ll be working alongside Dyson engineers on live Dyson projects. 

    In years one and two, you’ll attend two taught modules in the first term, two in the second term, and one in the third term. You’ll also study a programming module that spans the year. Across years three and four, you’ll study ten taught modules and work on an individual academic project that is embedded in Research, Design and Development (RDD).

  • Modules: years one and two

    During the first two years, you will study a variety of general engineering modules.

  • Modules: years three and four

    At the end of your second year, you’ll choose which stream to study: mechanical engineering, electronics, software or electromechanical engineering. Each stream contains ten taught modules and an individual project that will apply your learning in Research, Design and Development (RDD).

  • Term times

    The Dyson engineering degree is different to any other university course. You're working a real job. As such, you'll be expected to maintain normal office hours.
    You’ll receive a generous holiday entitlement.

    - 50 days in total
    - 14 days of annual leave to book whenever you like (excluding study days)
    - 28 days of academic leave, roughly a week after each set of exams with a two week break in the summer
    - 8 bank holidays

    There are three academic terms per year, running from October to January, January to May and May to July. From July to October, there is no teaching, but you will still be learning and developing.
