Welcome message

It’s my pleasure to welcome you onto BSc (Hons) Computer Games Technology.

I am looking forward to meeting you at induction week. As well as receiving useful information, we will help you to get to know your way around the School and campus. This will also be an opportunity to get to know staff and students through some fun activities.

The course you’re about to start is a very focussed programme, training you to develop into a games programmer. The skillset required for this is very transferrable, you will be acquiring abilities in web development, 3D modelling, visual effects, technical art, mobile technology as well as all the features of a talented software developer. These topics are all reliant on one another in the world of game development and you’ll use your knowledge in these areas to produce a professional suite of games for your portfolio during the duration of the course.

Here at BCU you’ll have access to a dedicated team of specialists to support you every step of the way. We want you to have a fulfilling, interesting and high-quality learning experience with us, and the course team have been working tirelessly to design a suite of content to provide you with exactly that.

During welcome week we'll introduce you to your new working environment and the staff who will support you. I very much look forward to meeting with all of you this week and encourage you to check out everything you can about the University and about game development before you start with us. Should you want to hit the ground running and wish to do a little bit of preparation before we start, please check out Getting Started with Unity at https://learn.unity.com/. If you have any questions ahead of your arrival with us, please feel free to contact me, your course leader, by email at carlo.harvey@bcu.ac.uk.

Essential Equipment / IT recommendations

All IT hardware and software are provided on campus for your access and this is everything you will need to be able to succeed in the course. Additionally, there is a provision of a Virtual Desktop that can be accessed remotely for some tasks. However, some students have found it useful to have a PC or laptop to work from home in the past. Should you decide this will similarly benefit you, you may want to consider before investing the system requirements for Unity and Unreal Engine, both game engines we use regularly.

Welcome message

Dear Year 1 students –

On behalf of the Course Team I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to BCU and your Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Film Production. We hope your time here will be enjoyable, productive and rewarding as we help you acquire the knowledge and skills required to develop a career in the screen industries.

All we require from you is the commitment to engage fully with your studies and make every effort to take full advantage of the many opportunities which will become available to you over the next three years - or perhaps four if you choose to complete an industrial placement year.

I will be telling you a lot more about the course during Welcome Week and I encourage you to ask as many questions as you like about what you will actually be doing as you progress through the modules you will be studying. Being well-informed means the best possible start to what we hope will be a truly transformative journey through to your eventual graduation and everything good that awaits thereafter.

I look forward to meeting you very soon!

Best regards

Stephen

Welcome message

Welcome to the BEng Electronic Engineering course at Birmingham City University. Your course resides in the Department of Engineering’s portfolio of engineering courses within the School of Engineering and the Built Environment (EBE). We hope that you will have a challenging, stimulating and enjoyable time studying with us this academic year leading to successful and fruitful results.

Electronic Engineering offers an exciting course of study which is critical, challenging and forward-looking. The course also seeks to promote excellent reputation within industry for providing the appropriate knowledge and skills to match its needs. Our vision for Electronic Engineering has been focussed by the determination to strike an equitable balance between the technological aspects, the principle skills and techniques necessary for a successful career within your discipline, and the demands of employers and professional bodies for this discipline-specific course.

Electronic Engineering is taught by active researchers and practitioners who ensure that your curriculum is innovative in terms of content, assessment and delivery. A particular characteristic of Electronic Engineering is its established tradition of research-informed teaching. Electronic Engineering has also been designed in alignment with appropriate professional accreditation requirements and seamless progression themes that reflect the Quality Assurance Agency Subject Benchmark Statements and the Course Learning Outcomes. Consistent to the academic requirements, the learning experience of the course reflects the nature of your career discipline, both in its content and skills provision. This culminates in the use of real life projects (particularly in relation to project modules), case studies, scenarios and laboratory sessions in addition to the appropriate theoretical principles and analytical tools.

Your Course Leader has overall responsibility for ensuring that quality and standards are maintained for the delivery of your course. Module leaders will look after your interests at the modular level. They report to the Course Leader and oversee the teaching of the module for which they have responsibility. They devise the teaching programme, produce module handbooks and contribute to Annual Monitoring. Technical advisers and Support Technicians have a wide range and depth of vocational knowledge and experience and will support you when appropriate.

You will be given every opportunity to discuss the course with the course and module leaders, and the teaching team are prepared to give assistance to you as necessary. The teaching team has an excellent reputation with existing students in terms of communication and availability. You are able to contact members of the teaching team throughout your study on the course.

In terms of formal opportunities for offering your feedback, there will be student representation from the Electronic Engineering at the appropriate course committee. Your feedback will also take place through using standard Module and Course Evaluation Questionnaires. This feedback is analysed in team meetings and responses are fed into Annual Monitoring and back to you at the appropriate committee.

In this Course Handbook, we hope to give you all the essential information you will need in order to successfully complete your qualification. This handbook should be read in conjunction with individual module guides, learning resources found on Course Resources and website information.

In addition to the help, information and advice available in this Course Handbook, each module has its own Module Specification. Module Specifications should normally include:

  • Details of module content, including a week-by-week schedule of sessions
  • An outline of teaching and learning methods
  • An explanation of the assessment process and assessment criteria
  • Health and safety information.
  • A bibliography and list of relevant non-book resources

As part of the Quality Assurance arrangements for your course, your work is firstly internally moderated and then externally moderated by an External Examiner to ensure that the standards of your course are comparable with other Universities in this country.

We look forward to welcoming you on your first day!

You can purchase all of your Engineering safety equipment - lab coat, goggles, and shoes through our BCU online store at great prices.

It is important that you purchase these items before and during Welcome Week so that you can start practical activities in our workshops as soon as you arrive.

This year, all new first-year and foundation Engineering students will have colour-coded lab coats to represent the course you are studying, and these will be BCU branded and embroidered.

If you have already purchased a lab coat ready for Welcome Week (proof of purchase will be required), please contact the technical team at EBE_Technical_Services@bcu.ac.uk  and we can look into this on a case by case basis. Safety boots and safety goggles are the same from our store as you will find elsewhere so if you have already purchased these in advance of starting the course that is fine and hang on to them.

Welcome to the BEng Manufacturing Engineering courses at Birmingham City University.

Your course is part of the Engineering Centre within the School of Engineering and the Built Environment (EBE). We hope that you will have a challenging, stimulating and enjoyable time studying with us this academic year leading to successful and fruitful results.

 BEng Manufacturing Engineering offers an exciting course of study which is critical, challenging and forward-looking. The course also seeks to promote excellent reputation within industry for providing the appropriate knowledge and skills to match its needs. Our vision for BEng / MEng Manufacturing Engineering has been focussed by the determination to strike an equitable balance between the technological aspects, the principle skills and techniques necessary for a successful career within your discipline, and the demands of employers and professional bodies for this discipline-specific course.

 BEng Manufacturing Engineering is taught by active researchers and practitioners who ensure that your curriculum is innovative in terms of content, assessment and delivery. A particular characteristic of BEng / MEng Manufacturing Engineering is its established tradition of research-informed teaching BEng / MEng Manufacturing Engineering has also been designed in alignment with appropriate professional accreditation requirements and seamless progression themes that reflect the Quality Assurance Agency Subject Benchmark Statements and the Course Learning Outcomes.

Consistent to the academic requirements, the learning experience of the course reflects the nature of your career discipline, both in its content and skills provision. This culminates in the use of real life projects (particularly in relation to project modules), case studies, scenarios and laboratory sessions in addition to the appropriate theoretical principles and analytical tools. Your Course Leader has overall responsibility for ensuring that quality and standards are maintained for the delivery of your course. Module leaders will look after your interests at the modular level. They report to the Course Leader and oversee the teaching of the module for which they have responsibility. They devise the teaching programme, produce module handbooks and contribute to Annual Monitoring. Technical advisers and Support Technicians have a wide range and depth of vocational knowledge and experience and will support you when appropriate.

You will be given every opportunity to discuss the course with the course and module leaders, and the teaching team are prepared to give assistance to you as necessary. The teaching team has an excellent reputation with existing students in terms of communication and availability. You are able to contact members of the teaching team throughout your study on the course.

In terms of formal opportunities for offering your feedback, there will be student representation from the MEng Manufacturing Engineering at the appropriate course committee. Your feedback will also take place through using standard Module and Course Evaluation Questionnaires. This feedback is analysed in team meetings and responses are fed into Annual Monitoring and back to you at the appropriate committee.

In this Course Handbook, we hope to give you all the essential information you will need in order to successfully complete your qualification. This handbook should be read in conjunction with individual module handbooks and specifications, learning resources found on Course Resources and website information. In addition to the help, information and advice available in this Course Handbook, each module has its own handbook. Module Handbooks should normally include:

  • Details of module content, including a week-by-week schedule of sessions
  • An outline of teaching and learning methods
  • An explanation of the assessment process and assessment criteria
  • Health and safety information
  • A bibliography and list of relevant non-book resources

Congratulations and Welcome to Birmingham City University School of Computing Engineering & the Built Environment. As a BSc (Hons) in Construction Management student, we hope you are looking forward to the course and looking forward to taking your first steps to becoming a Chartered Construction Manager.

The BSc (Hons) Construction Management is a degree course which seeks to prepare construction professionals for an exciting and challenging career in construction and infrastructure in the UK and abroad.

Today’s construction industry is facing the challenges of globalisation, climate change, demanding clients and a complex regulatory framework. The growing importance of technology and integrated delivery plays an increasingly important role in the industry. This construction management degree will give you the skills to deal with these challenges and more. With innovation at the core of the programme, you will learn through creative problem solving and working with our industrial partners.

Many of the tutors in the course have years of practical experience as well as academic qualifications with several members of staff actively involved in our professional bodies and the final assessment of graduates in their professional interviews.

The course has been designed in line with the needs of potential employers in the public, private and third sectors. It has also been developed in accordance with the requirements of The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Both forms of accreditation will allow you to progress through your studies as a student member and before working towards your professional qualification in Industry. As a Construction Manager, you will be involved in managing the project from inception and design through to occupation. This requires a wide range of skills and involves management of people and communities if a project is to be delivered safely, on time, on budget and to the highest possible quality. This Construction Management course will focus on Integrated Project Delivery, working within a design team and understanding the impact of early decision making on your profession and community. This guide is designed to enable you to understand more about the aims and structure of the course as well as the types of assessment methods you will encounter as part of the course.

You will also look at development plans, policies and projects, as well as examining the physical, technical, legal, environmental and political factors affecting development decisions.

The course structure reflects the requirements of potential employers across the public, private and tertiary sectors, and leading internationally recognised professional bodies, the RTPI. The course is based within the Department for Built Environment in the School of Engineering and the Built Environment.

UK/EU students

  • Passport or Photo ID
  • Original qualification documents if applicable (you will be emailed a list of the documents we need to see once you have completed your online enrolment)

International students

As well as the items listed above, you should also bring the following:

  • Passport
  • Visa
  • Qualification documents as listed in your CAS, for your visa application

What else? The rest is up to you, there is a shop, café, pub, computer access and water fountains on campus, but we recommend on your first day you bring the following:

  • Pen
  • Notepad
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Snack
  • Money
  • Face mask

And remember, the weather in Birmingham can be changeable!
