Why study a postgraduate Engineering course at USW?

Industry-standard Engineering Facilities

At the University of South Wales, you will have hands-on access to our dedicated, industry-standard engineering facilities. This includes our on campus Aerospace Centre, which houses its very own aircraft, a suite of practical training facilities approved by the aerospace industry, and electronics labs supplemented with world-leading Renesas technologies. 

We have recently refurbished our civil and mechanical engineering labs equipping them with the latest computer-aided and controlled machinery. You can explore our professional facilities from the comfort of your seat by taking a virtual tour.



Flexible Learning

Our Engineering courses are based at our Treforest campus in Pontypridd. The ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic means that we are having to make changes to the way in which we deliver our courses and services. We are committed to delivering our courses and other services as safely as possible. 

Our courses are currently taught with a blended learning approach and several of our courses are also available to study 100% online. You will undertake lectures, workshops and tutorials virtually through various online tools, be able to access and receive online email and video support from your lecturers and peers every step of the way.
