How will I be taught?
A crucial feature of any university course is the strength of its teaching staff. Cambridge University's reputation is such that it attracts the highest quality academics who are at the forefront of their chosen areas of research.
This means that the teaching you receive will also be at the cutting edge of that field. You will get to know the leading lecturers and researchers in your specialist area during the third and fourth years of the course. The quality of all university research and teaching has in recent years been the subject of scrutiny by the Government.
The Department of Engineering was awarded the highest possible grading in all the research assessments and was rated exceptionally highly for teaching quality when this was last assessed.
