Foundation Engineering and Physical Science

Foundation Engineering and Physical Science (FEPS) is taught on our Jubilee Campus. Your learning will take place in the Advanced Manufacturing Building. As well as being a base for students on FEPS, it is also home to cutting edge research. Throughout your studies you’ll be part of university life and have access to all the facilities and student experiences across Engineering and Science.
