Our architectural engineering Clearing course will give you a comprehensive view of building design from day one, providing you with robust knowledge of building structures and the capability to lead a multidisciplinary approach to building design.

Guided by international expert tutors, this course will help you to develop career-essential knowledge and skills. Through our enviable location close to central Manchester, our strong industry links, and our professional studio environment, you’ll study architecture in an inspiring, engaging way. What’s more, you’ll be given the opportunity to work on live briefs and attend guest lectures from local architecture and engineering firms, meaning you’ll graduate ready to change our built environment for the better.

Civil Engineering

Fascinated by infrastructure? Want to contribute to society in a positive way? Civil engineering is one of the glues that keeps our villages, towns, cities, roads, canals, railways held together. If you have an interest in designing, creating, and connecting the infrastructure of the future, our civil engineering Clearing course is the one for you.

By choosing to take a civil engineering degree via Clearing at Salford, you’ll gain the skills needed to successfully plan, manage, and implement major engineering projects – while also benefitting from industry-led teaching. Initially providing a foundation in structures, surveying and project planning, your studies will progress to cover water resources, geotechnics, and seismic engineering. With a focus on your future, you will also get the option to participate in an industry placement year, where you can gain additional skills and boost your employability once you graduate.

Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Want to design the electrical power systems that are needed to meet tomorrow’s energy requirements? Interested in developing machine-learning algorithms that make robotic devices come to life? From transport to commerce, electronics are revolutionising every industry, changing the way we live, work and play. That’s why there’s never been a more exciting time to pursue a degree through our electrical and electronic engineering Clearing courses.

Our electronic engineering Clearing courses will prepare you for a career in the fast-paced and dynamic electronics sector. Today, the industry is focused on wireless charging and contactless payments, but tomorrow? With new trends and inventions emerging all the time, you could be at the forefront of this innovation.

Designed to prepare you for an exciting career, our electric and electronic engineering Clearing course illustrates how engineering is reshaping our world. During your studies, you’ll have access to outstanding facilities, including a modern electronics lab, an automotives lab and a robotics lab, packed with the latest industry-standard equipment. Across three years, you’ll learn about subjects as varied as green power generation, intelligent automobiles, sustainable energy and machine learning. Taught by a team of internationally-recognised engineers and researchers, we’ll share our passion for engineering and our industry expertise in robotics and automation research.

Mechanical Engineering

From heating systems to refrigerators and cars, mechanical engineering shapes our daily life – yet across the world, mechanical engineers are in short supply. This, along with recent leaps forward in robotics and automation means there are many exciting opportunities. With our mechanical engineering Clearing places, we provide you with a path into an exciting and ever-evolving field.

Our mechanical engineering Clearing places are designed to prepare you for a career spent designing, commissioning, and maintaining systems of the future. You’ll also develop the theoretical knowledge and skill sets required to thrive in a range of sectors.

At Salford, you will benefit from small group teaching and a supportive learning environment. As part of our UCAS Clearing mechanical engineering courses, you will also have the option to pursue an industry placement, which will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your theoretical knowledge and creative application – all of which counts towards you becoming a world-class engineer.

Sound Engineering and Production

Are you a creative person who enjoys using technology to find solutions? Do you have a passion for music, sound, production, or audio technology? From engineering studio sessions to creative sound design, our sound engineering and production Clearing courses will allow you to develop your professional knowledge, so you can deliver audio at the highest standard.

With a focus on your career and real-world applications, you’ll explore a range of audio modules on our sound engineering and production Clearing courses.  These courses are designed to equip you with the skills to build a career in the music and audio industries.
