  1. Brunel performed well in the annual rankings of UK universities produced by The Guardian and The Times, in part due to its strong performance in the Teaching Quality Assessment (where Brunel received a score of 20/24 or better for every subject assessed). The Guardian and The Times ceased using the TQA to compile their rankings (they use the National Student Survey results instead) and therefore Brunel had fallen in both rankings. However, the university regained its league position in 2012 partly due to improved student satisfaction and spending on students. As a result, it was ranked 39th in the Sunday Times University Guide. In the 2013 Guardian University Guide, the university's national ranking rose to 44th.

This specialist degree programme is aimed at those students who wish to undertake senior engineering roles within the operational side of the aviation industry, but who also retain an interest in flying. The engineering content is accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

The course runs alongside the Pilot Studies course, replacing flying training with greater design content, making this particularly suitable for anybody aiming for a professional engineering career, but not in a flying role.

Accordingly, the programme integrates basic flight principles and the opportunity to train on a flight simulator with a solid grounding in general engineering and a background in management and operations. The programme will draw on the close proximity of Heathrow and the other London airports and, on completion, graduates will be equipped to follow careers within the aviation industry.

Interacting with students from different specialisms and with different interests is an important part of the University experience. To help with this, we have introduced a multidisciplinary project for Level 1 students. This is a design-based competition between teams made up of students from a number of subjects.

About the course

The BEng course in Civil Engineering aims to produce the next generation of leading civil engineers, equipped for leading professional roles in the civil engineering industry and the wider local, national and global community.

Drawing on an impressive body of pure and applied research engineers and scientists, we will introduce you to mainstream civil engineering knowledge, ranging from geotechnical site assessment to assessing and designing structures and water engineering.

Professional engineers working with major clients, consultancies and contractors are involved in bringing real world experience to the programme.

Varies depending on country.

Please check the course page on Brunel's website for further information.

Aims

The next few decades promise to be amongst the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community. Rising populations, progressive urbanisation and ongoing economic development, not to mention climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events, already present many threats to infrastructure.

As a result, civil engineers need to draw deeply on their knowledge, skills and ability to innovate through design and use of materials. Doing this they provide essential facilities such as sustainable structures, roads, bridges, tunnels and flood protection and waste management, while minimising the negative impacts on communities and the environment.

Brunel's programme has been designed as a ‘hands-on’ learning experience. You will learn fundamental theory, and then have the opportunity to test and apply much of that theory through design in the laboratory, using advanced software, and during field work.

Alongside this, we will explore the role of the engineer in current and future projects, following the sustainable ‘cradle to cradle’ approach called for by major institutions such as the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Civil Engineers

About the course

The complex challenges faced in modern engineering have created a growing need for highly motivated graduates who understand project infrastructure planning, construction, management and maintenance issues.

This MSc course equips you with the knowledge, creativity and transferable skills required by project managers in the industry – developing your independent learning abilities and providing a foundation for your ongoing professional development.

You will learn current theories and practices for managing contemporary engineering projects from inception to completion – and for maintaining the resulting infrastructure throughout its lifetime.

 

Aims

Engineering is at the core of a successful economy and the infrastructure it develops directly affects the wellbeing of its citizens and the environment. Skilled, qualified project managers have a key role in this vital work.

There are two main challenges facing the engineering and construction industry:

  • clients are increasingly requiring contractors to deliver projects using limited resources, at low cost, in short duration and to a high level of quality and safety
  • much existing infrastructure is under severe strain due to a legacy of inadequate maintenance and rapid population growth.

The course examines these commercial pressures and will provide opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:

  • the principles of strategic planning and risk analysis in successful project and infrastructure management
  • the theoretical basis for the organisation of project infrastructure development and how management of budgets, human resources and supply chains can affect overall project success
  • the interplay between engineering project, infrastructure management and sustainability in the complex real-world situations.

The programme develops students' technical knowledge and transferable skills sought by employers, equipping them with the compulsory attributes to flourish in senior roles within the engineering and construction sector.

About the course

Structural engineers help to make, shape and maintain the built environment. They are professionals who enjoy innovation, a challenge, opportunities, responsibility and, excitement in a varied and very satisfying career.

The MSc programme in Structural Engineering is designed to attract both international and home students, who wish to pursue their career in civil and structural engineering. To meet the increasing demand for structural engineers to design more safe, economic and environmental friendly buildings, the programme content has specifically been designed to give a thorough grounding on current practice with regards to dealing with structural fire and earthquake resistances and design of carbon neutral buildings.

A particular feature of the course content lies with the emphasis on the performance-based, structural design philosophy. The strong focus on these aspects will appeal to any students who intend to become the next generation of structural engineers after graduation.

Aims

Structural engineering is a profession that provides a tremendous opportunity to make a real difference to people's lives and their environment. In the current century, climate change is an increasingly important issue which needs to be tackled - and the role of the structural engineer in tackling climate change is immense.

To meet these challenges, structural engineers need to combine traditional structural engineering expertise with an understanding of a wide range of issues related to design of zero carbon buildings. There is a significant shortage of structural engineers with the requisite knowledge, skills, and experience to deal efficiently with complex issues for designing structurally sound, elegantly simple and environmentally sustainable buildings. The skills shortage and its effects on the construction industry will be further exacerbated by the huge demand from some rising economic powers.

This new MSc programme has been developed in response to this growing need for graduates aware of current challenges in structural engineering. The primary aim of this programme is to create master’s degree graduates with qualities and transferable skills for demanding employment in the construction and civil engineering sector. The graduates will have the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development and acquiring new skills at the highest level.

The practical aspects of many of the modules will allow you to gain hands-on experience of several commercial SAS tools (e.g. SAS BASE, Enterprise Guide, Enterprise Miner and Visual Analytics). This experience is designed, in part, to develop skills in preparation for the SAS certification part of the programme.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

  • Comprehend the key concepts and nuances of the disciplines that need to be synthesised for effective data science.
  • Demonstrate a critical understanding of the challenges and issues arising from taking heterogeneous data at volume and scale, understanding what it represents and turning that understanding into insight for business, scientific or social innovation (i.e. data science).

This programme is specifically tailored to provide graduates or practising engineers with the necessary skills to pursue a successful engineering career, who are targeted for recruitment by companies and organisations globally. As industry-ready engineers, recent graduates of this MSc are in high demand and have been successful in gaining employment in:

  • Oil and gas industry
  • Engineering consultancies
  • Asset management
  • Research organisations

When structures fail, the results can be catastrophic. Not only in terms of potential loss of life and operational downtime, but also because of the huge costs associated with subsequent inspection and repair. Integrity engineers play a crucial role in preventing these failures. Their decisions influence structural design, determine service life extensions and improve safety for a wide range of sectors, including oil and gas, power generation and transportation.

This unique postgraduate programme provides the necessary training needed to detect the existence, formation and growth of damage and defects, and to assess the influence of loads and stresses arising from manufacture and applied in service. While being able to detect defects is vital, it is knowing what to do with these defects that is at the core of this programme. You can expect to be taught by industrial experts involved in developing codes, standards and working practices.

Being industry-led, this programme provides an opportunity to work on real engineering projects, equipping graduates with applied knowledge of material and structural failure, finite element analysis, non-destructive testing and project management.

The Core Spine

The core spine of Global Challenges is the common thread running through this degree, and will explore questions associated with how the citizens of tomorrow will face, analyse, and manage inevitable challenges related to the ‘wicked problems’ of our time. These themes will form the central framework of the degree programme, taking an in-depth look at issues such as climate change, migration, terrorism, aging populations, food and water scarcity, poverty and countless others. As well as undertaking the core spine of degree, you will have the choice to follow one of four pathways that specialize in an area of Global Challenges. These complementary strands have been selected not only because they all represent pressing issues faced by the international community, but also because of Brunel’s existing and emerging expertise in these areas.

Planetary Health

The impact of human activity must be addressed and managed so that we do not continue to damage our ecology and ultimately ourselves. Brunel University London is a member of the Planetary Health Alliance, a consortium of over 70 dedicated universities, NGOs, government entities, research institutes, and other partners around the world committed to advancing planetary health.

To adequately address the threats of accelerating environmental changes, there is a need for graduates able to examine the ecological determinants of human health and predict their likely consequences at both geographical and temporal scales, and within different socio-cultural and economic contexts. This understanding will enable them to contribute to better governance, better resource management, better planning and better design in order to mitigate the growing risks.

The scope of the strand straddles across environmental, health and social sciences. On completion, students will understand that the way that humanity manages Earth’s natural systems is a primary factor of future global health.

The Planetary Health strand comprises of three elements;

  • Ecosystem transformations includes the thematic areas that are centred around environmental topics: Natural Disasters, Urbanization, Pollution, Climate Change, Water Scarcity
  • Health impacts includes the thematic areas that are centred around public health topics: Infectious diseases, Non-communicable diseases, Physical health, Mental health, Nutrition Civil strife and displacement
  • Socio-cultural and economic contexts includes thematic areas that are centred around social and cultural and economic aspects of public health.

Aims

The aim of this new degree programme is to develop your knowledge and understanding of the natural sciences, humanities, social sciences, technology, philosophy and ethics and how they can contribute to identifying, understanding and responding to global issues and concerns. You will learn the critical, practical and research skills needed for successful self-directed work and for contributing to a shared objective as a team player.

Global Challenges is specifically focused around developing the ability to not only critically question ideas on knowledge, values and experience, but also engage with them. Criticising and re-interpreting major texts, conducting though experiments and developing evidence-based responses in written, oral and audio visual will all make up part of your study. This means, once you complete the Global Challenges degree, you’ll have the confidence to identify the underlying issues in a variety of contemporary global situations and the understanding of the sociological, political and economic implications of human interaction.

If you are intrigued by these questions and want to study a discipline that will enrich your everyday life as well as equip you for a great variety of occupations, anthropology is the right course for you.

Aims

Anthropology is a cosmopolitan social science that takes human diversity for its subject, providing a unique means of understanding cultural and social differences. Students from a wide variety of backgrounds are welcomed.

Our course provides a broad based grounding in the wider social sciences, integrating key anthropological concepts with fieldwork based research. Fieldwork is an excellent preparation for work and a chance to make useful contacts.

You will gain a solid foundation in core anthropological topics such as politics, religion and kinship, and the chance to venture into new and cutting-edge areas, notably in medical anthropology and the anthropology of childhood, education and youth.

Sociology at Brunel

A central theme of Sociology at Brunel is the study of the development of techno-cultural phenomena such as media and information technology, and environmental issues, which straddle traditional conceptual distinctions between the social, the natural, the technical and the material.

At Brunel, Sociology has developed a particularly close relationship with Communication and Media Studies, reflecting and emphasising the central and ever-increasing importance of the communications media within our culture.

Among the more specific interests of Brunel sociologists are, for example, social theory, celebrity culture, the influence of the media, environmental risk, media regulation, media discourses, and contemporary social structure and change, urban spaces, and addiction and deviance. These various interests strongly reflect the options available in Level 3 of our degree course.

Aims

Anthropology is a cosmopolitan social science that takes human diversity for its subject, providing a unique means of understanding cultural and social differences. Sociology, its sister discipline, looks at the foundations of social life and the big issues in contemporary society: inequality, racism, globalisation, and migration.

Take your knowledge of culture and society to the next level and equip yourself with a big range of practical and analytical skills for a changing world.

  • You will apply anthropology ideas to practical issues and will gain a solid grounding in a broad range of social science topics, including sociology, social theory, social anthropology, psychology, communications and media.
  • Special emphasis is placed on cross-cultural studies.

About the course

The Anthropology of Childhood, Youth and Education MSc was the first degree of its kind in the world when it was established and is still unique in its thoroughgoing anthropological perspective on what it is to be a child or to be young.

Its key organising principle is that understanding children requires the study of how their relations with others - peers, older and younger children, parents, teachers and other adults - inform their practices, identities and world views.

This course addresses the following issues from an anthropological perspective:

  • Do children of ‘different cultures’ live ‘different worlds’?
  • How does education impact upon children’s worlds and upon social and cultural practices more broadly?
  • How do everyday processes of learning – both formal and informal - help to shape children’s ideas of and engagement with society at large?
  • What is the role of schools in the transmission and acquisition of cultural values to children and youth?
  • And why are adults’ ideas about childhood and youth so important for what children learn and aspire to become?

The distinctiveness of this degree derives from an anthropological approach that focuses on the importance of children’s and youth’s perspectives, and on the role that education (formal and informal) plays in children’s learning processes and in the transmission and acquisition of cultural knowledge.

Anthropology at Brunel is well-known for its focus on ethnographic fieldwork: as well as undertaking rigorous intellectual training, all our students are expected to get out of the library and undertake their own, original research – whether in the UK or overseas – and to present their findings in a dissertation. Students take this opportunity to travel to a wide variety of locations across the world – see “Special Features” for more details.

Attendance for lectures full-time: 2 days per week - for 24 weeks
Attendance for lectures part-time: 1 day per week - for 24 weeks (in each of 2 years)

Aims

  • Through an examination of ethnographic cases from around the world (including the UK), you will learn about the different ways in which childhood and youth are understood and conceptualised.
  • You will explore the different educational forms and processes through which cultural knowledge is transmitted and acquired, and how culture impacts upon these processes.

About the course

Over the last ten years, global aspirations to reduce the suffering of the "bottom billion" have led to unprecedented attention on international development. International agencies, governments and NGOs are working more intensely than ever before to deliver appropriate policies and interventions.

Anthropology has played a key role in the emergence of new perspectives on humanitarian assistance and the livelihoods of populations caught up in extreme circumstances such as famines, natural disasters and wars.

On the one hand, this has led to a radical re-thinking of what has been happening, but on the other hand, it has led to anthropologists sometimes playing controversial roles in agendas associated with the "war on terror".

This course examines these contemporary issues and debates, and explores their implications. It also sets them in the context of anthropology as a discipline.

The course will appeal to graduates from a variety of backgrounds, including: anthropology, sociology, economics, politics, geography, law and development studies. It is suited for those interested in critically assessing the policies and practices of international development and humanitarian assistance to war-affected regions from an anthropological perspective.

It will provide the necessary training to enable students to seek employment with NGOs (such as Oxfam and Save the Children Fund), international agencies (such as the World Health Organisation and the World Food Programme) and the civil service (such as the UK Department for International Development).

It will also provide a useful stepping stone for those seeking to undertake doctoral research in international development.

About the course

Brunel was the first university in Europe to establish a Master's degree in Medical Anthropology. Since then we have continued to develop our programme to reflect the changing world in which we live.

In short, Medical Anthropology can be described as the study of cultural beliefs and practices associated with the origin, recognition and management of health and illness in different social and cultural groups.

Literally hundreds of students – doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and other medical professionals among them – can testify to the quality of our programme, having used it either to enhance their professional practice, to change career or to develop their research interests for future studies.

Anthropology at Brunel is well-known for its focus on ethnographic fieldwork: as well as undertaking rigorous intellectual training, all our students are expected to get out of the library and undertake their own, original research – whether in the UK or overseas – and to present their findings in a dissertation.

Attendance for lectures full-time: 2 days per week - for 24 weeks
Attendance for lectures part-time: 1 day per week - for 24 weeks (in each of 2 years)

Aims

The degree aims to equip students with a broad, general understanding of anthropology and how it might be applied to medical and health-related problems.

You will develop a deeper understanding of how people’s ideas about the world, as well as the structural constraints within which they find themselves, have an impact on their understanding and experience of health, sickness and disease.

You’ll achieve this through close study of key texts in medical anthropology, the original fieldwork experiences of your lecturers, and through designing and undertaking your own research project.

If you’ve wondered about some or all of the questions below – all of which are addressed in the degree – this could be the course for you:

  • How does poverty contribute to the profiles of diseases such as diabetes and tuberculosis?
  • Why are some diseases, such as leprosy or AIDS/HIV, feared and stigmatized?
  • Why do some biomedical interventions seeking to control infectious and non-infectious diseases work, and others fail?
  • What might stop some patients seeking conventional treatments for cancers and other conditions – even when they are offered for free – despite the apparent efficacy of the medicines available?
  • How does one make the distinction between the healthy and the pathological? Is being ‘disabled’, for example, always a negative state, or might some consider it just another, equally valid, way of being?
  • What are the effects of political, economic and other social conditions on people’s experiences of what, from a biomedical perspective, might be considered the same diseases?
  • How and why is it appropriate to combine insights emerging from clinical and epidemiological research with ethnographic understandings of health, illness and disease?

The Brunel Medical Anthropology MSc addresses these issues and more in a lively and challenging way, through a programme of lectures, class discussions, and your own – personally directed – final dissertation research project

About the course

  • Do our categories of behaviour – normal and abnormal – translate across cultures?
  • Why do ethnic minorities have different experiences of mental health?
  • Is there a ‘human nature’ underneath all the cultural differences?

Anyone interested in psychological processes, feeling and expression, memory and trauma, culture and personality, will have asked themselves questions of this kind. However, they are less likely to have asked themselves how (or if) we can recognise and analyse different emotions in other cultural settings.

In this new MSc degree, the first of its kind anywhere in Europe, we tackle these and other issues from an anthropological perspective, looking at the social and cultural dimensions of human experience.

By engaging with debates on these important topics and through the examination of world ethnography (including the UK), participants will learn about selfhood, emotion, madness and identity in cultural context.

  • Through detailed consideration of cases from Britain and around the world, we explore the ways in which person, emotion, and subjectivity are shaped through cultural practices.
  • Candidates from backgrounds in health, therapy, social work and psychology will be able to challenge the categories and assumptions inherent in standard approaches to psychological and behavioural issues.

The Social Anthropology MRes is a taught postgraduate degree that provides high quality training in anthropology and anthropological research.

The course is of particular relevance for those who wish to use such training as a foundation for PhD study or who are keen to enhance their careers through the acquisition of advanced knowledge and research skills. Accordingly, the MRes can be completed as a qualification in itself, or as the first stage in a four-year PhD programme.

For students with no previous anthropological training, it can also act as a conversion course to anthropology.

A unique feature of this programme is that students can design, in collaboration with academic staff, Guided Study Modules to focus on their particular areas of research interest.

Design at Brunel is all about realising fantastic ideas in the real world. Our Industrial Design and Technology BA suits creative and practical thinkers who prefer to learn through building and evaluating project-based challenges, with technological understanding and less theory and quantitative analysis.

There is a lot of project-based learning to test your skills on all aspects of the design process, from contextual design ideas to realising your concept in the form of a product prototype. This means you’ll be able to build a great portfolio of your best-quality projects, academic and industry briefs, and case studies, during your studies.

You’ll have workshop training and will use industry-standard equipment and software to develop quality hands-on skills to become a maker. Independent access is available to modern facilities that include dedicated design studios, digital sketching, extensive prototyping workshops, and electronics and digital fabrication labs. The practical knowledge you gain is transferable to industry and provides a head start for your future career as a designer and design making in the modern world.

Our industrial design and technology course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) and can be studied full-time over three years, or four years with a placement year.

The placement year helps you to prepare for the world of work and you’ll have a year’s worth of invaluable professional experience when you graduate. Our students have worked in both small innovation start-ups and multinational organisations such as Chanel, Dior, Disney, Dyson and Lego. Some take advantage of exchange programmes that can take them to universities in Europe and the USA.

Made in Brunel is a unique, student-led initiative that showcases our design talent at its finest. Each year our students run a series of industry and community events leading up to the Made in Brunel exhibition. This annual showcase is a highlight of the London design calendar and promotes the incredible work our students produce to the creative community, and is a great way for our students to network with key design professionals.

If you are interested in turning a product or technology idea into a business after you graduate, we are in partnership with the Central Research Laboratory (CRL), a design incubator for start-ups. You’ll have access to meeting rooms and work space as well as prototyping facilities. A team of in-house professionals will guide and support you at each stage and a number of our previous entrepreneurial students have successfully commercialised their products.

The British Industrial Design Association graduate employability survey ranks Brunel second for creating the ‘most employable graduates’.
