Our Interdisciplinary Approach
The School of Engineering at the University of Aberdeen encompasses five disciplines – Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering. At the heart of each of our disciplines lies a passion for using creativity to design solutions to the complex technological, economic, environmental, and medical challenges we face today.
Join us in Aberdeen if you are interested in taking on the challenge of transitioning to low-carbon technology, designing and building sustainable infrastructure, protecting the environment, harnessing the benefits of automation and revolutionising healthcare.
Professional engineers in today's world are required to work with colleagues from a range of engineering disciplines. All engineering students at the University of Aberdeen undertake studies from electrical and electronic, civil, chemical, mechanical and petroleum engineering during their first two years. This ensures our graduates are experienced and knowledgeable about the various skills and challenges each discipline would face, making them excellent choices for any engineering team. This approach also gives students flexibility in their degree - rather than being locked into a specific programme when applying, our students can choose the path that they prefer once they have experienced all five disciplines.
