Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of accredited programmes but here at the University of Sunderland, supported by the IET, we have maintained professional standards with an effective approach, blending face-to-face and online teaching.
Our experience has shown that this method opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from the Engineering academic team and the wider University services available to you.
Key practical and theoretical skills will continue to be taught in our new delivery method. This will include developing specialist knowledge using digital engineering techniques blended with the theory you would be expected to implement in engineering scenarios. This approach will ensure you acquire all the necessary engineering skills, before experiencing the world of industry for the first time. We will identify sessions we hope to be completed weekly on campus, to allow you to develop key proficiencies alongside your peers. Theoretical lectures will continue and be delivered online using live conference technology and video content you can review at your convenience.
