An exceptional education supported by Dyson's leading engineers.

An exceptional education supported by Dyson's leading engineers.

In the first two years at The Dyson Institute you will 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. We 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.

 

Undergraduates joining The Dyson Institute in September 2019 will be awarded their degree by The University of Warwick. The Dyson Institute is applying to the Office for Students for New Degree Awarding Powers, with the intention of delivering and awarding the degree itself for students enrolling from September 2020.

  • 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. We will guide you through the potential specialisation pathways to find the route best suited to you.

  • Course structure

    During term time, one day is devoted to teaching. A second 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.

    In years three and four, you’ll study ten taught modules and work on an individual academic project that is embedded in the Research, Design and Development (RDD) department at Dyson. 

  • Modules

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

  • Holiday and academic teaching times

    As an employee of Dyson, you will be expected to maintain normal office hours. You’ll receive a generous holiday entitlement of 50 days in total, to ensure your wellbeing and accommodate your study needs.

    - 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, (1) October to January, (2) January to May and (3) May to July.

    From July to October, there is no formal teaching, but you will still be learning and developing through our Summer Series programme.

  • The qualification

    Undergraduates joining The Dyson Institute in September 2019 will be awarded their qualification by The University of Warwick. The Dyson Institute is in the process of applying to the Office for Students for New Degree Awarding Powers and to be on the Register of Accredited Training Providers with the Institute for Apprenticeships.  Our intention is to deliver and award the degree and apprenticeship for students enrolling from September 2020.
