School of Engineering

At ATU School of Engineering, we offer a wide choice of Engineering and Built Environment programmes. Across all our programmes we place a strong emphasis on the 4 Ps – placement; practical’s; projects and professional accreditation.

Scientists investigate that which already is; Engineers create that which has never been

Why Engineering?

Every industry needs engineers and it’s an occupation with a wide reach. Engineers can work on developing wearable technologies for the healthcare industry, setting up explosions for a TV or film production set, or developing the design for a robot.

Why Built Environment?

The world’s most iconic structures wouldn’t exist without inspired planning and execution. Complex construction projects need specialised knowledge and a deep understanding of how people, processes and products work together.
