A unique education supported
by Dyson's leading engineers.

Life at Dyson is fast-paced. We thrive on disrupting each technology category that we enter. And the Dyson engineering degree is no different. With cutting-edge facilities, world-leading technology experts and real projects that bring theory to life, our Undergraduate Engineers are equipped to develop transformational technology.

 

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.

 

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

 

Your tuition fees will be paid by Dyson, and you will earn a salary from the start, meaning you could graduate debt-free.

  • Course content

    The degree is spread over four years. In the first two, you'll study engineering modules across all kinds of functions and disciplines. In years three and four, you’ll specialise in mechanical engineering, electronics, or a combination of both. 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 prototyping and computer aided design (CAD). You'll be working in a global business, playing a vital role in the development of a product.

  • Course structure

    During term time, one to two subjects are taught each Wednesday. On Thursdays, half the day is devoted to revision/labs, and half to academic projects and self-study. For the remainder of the week, you’ll be working alongside Dyson technology experts on real engineering 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 work on live Dyson projects that apply knowledge taught across other modules. In years three and four, you’ll attend five taught modules and work on an individual academic project in both years.

  • Modules: years one and two

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

  • Modules: years three and four

    This is when you will specialise in your chosen stream. At the end of your second year, you’ll choose ten taught modules to study in years three and four (five in each year).

  • 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 holiday allowance of 27 days, plus bank holidays, to take throughout the year rather than working to a traditional academic calendar.

    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 putting your studying into practice. Your job within Global Engineering continues throughout the summer.
