Queen's University


PSG Institute of Advanced Studies (PSGIAS) was founded by PSG and Sons’ Charities trust to promote high quality research in some niche areas of science and technology, as well as to create opportunities to PSG Institutions to collaborate with universities abroad.

The vision is to become an Institution of excellence in cross border mobility of faculty and students and promotion of translational research.

The mission is to continuously explore and enhance academic collaboration with universities abroad for cross border mobility of students and faculty of PSG Institutions and promote innovative research and technology business incubation.

PSG Institute of Advanced Studies conducts educational courses in partnership with Universities abroad under credit transfer scheme. Students complete a part of study at PSG where the courses are taught by the PSG Tech faculty with the latest facilities available at PSG College of Technology and the students go abroad to complete the study there and get an international degree awarded by the foreign University concerned. By this process the expenses incurred by the students come down considerably, yet students can get an international exposure and international degree.

The students study the same syllabus as in vogue at PSG College of Technology (an autonomous institution affiliated to Anna University) for 2 years and complete the balance 2years at Queen’s University.

About the program

BEng in Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineers apply skills and knowledge in maths, science and software to design and manufacture innovative, efficient and reliable technology at an optimised cost. Mechanical engineers are at the forefront of sustainable solutions for a better world in the 21st century. Examples include the next generation of environmentally friendly materials (e.g. bio-based polymers) and devices for renewable energy sources (e.g. wind turbines). Mechanical engineers are involved in the design, manufacture and recyclability of most products: from mobile phones, to medical devices to Formula 1 racing cars. This course develops the technical, personal, interpersonal and professional skills necessary in mechanical engineering.


  • The School has strong links with both local engineering employers such as Spirit Aero Systems, Caterpillar, Sensate, and Collins Aerospace and international engineering employers such as Jaguar Land Rover, Lotus, McLaren F1, Michelin and Rolls Royce, Glaxo Smith Kline (GSK).
  • The curriculum is heavily informed by industry representatives who sit on an advisory board within the School.
  • All of Mechanical Engineering degrees come with the option of a sandwich year in industry. You can spend up to 12 months getting hands on experience of a real engineering environment with a relevant company. Students have gained work placements with organisations such as Airbus UK, Cummins Turbo Technologies, GlaxoSmithKline, Lockheed Martin, Mercedes Benz High Performance Engines, Nacco Materials Handling Ltd, and Red Bull Technology Ltd.

BEng in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

In a world where sustainable energy, smart home technology, the Internet of Things and even self-driving cars are a reality, studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering offers students immeasurable potential opportunities. The advances in Electrical and Electronic Engineering are so great that every part of 21st Century life is improved by them.

As a result, Electrical and Electronic Engineering is one of the broadest and impactful exciting engineering disciplines on offer at Queen’s University. The degree programme covers a wide spectrum of topics, from micro-electronic chip design and manufacturing to power generation and distribution. Rapid advances in fields such as telecommunications, computer firmware, hardware and networking, medical electronics, security, control and robotics and renewable energy systems are also reflected in the course structure.


  • Students may undertake a year’s paid placement in industry and there are currently lots of companies to choose from. Examples of companies where our students have spent their placements include BT, Sensata Technologies, Andor Technology, NIE Networks, BAE Systems, Atkins, Microsoft and Seagate.
  • Queen's is one of only nine UK universities involved in the prestigious IET 'Power Academy' scholarship scheme, which each year provides scholarships from the fourteen industrial partners to students on the BEng and MEng degrees. The industrial partners involved in the Power Academy Scheme – examples include NIE Networks, Rolls Royce, National Grid, Network Rail, London Underground, Mitsubishi Electric and BAE Systems. Other companies, such as Sensata, Civica and Caterpillar, also sponsor students on these courses.

BEng in Aerospace Engineering

Aerospace Engineering is at the cutting edge of technology, understanding and applying scientific principles to the design, development and service of some of the most technologically advanced engineering products in the world, ranging from commercial aeroplanes and helicopters to spacecraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. Aerospace engineers will be pivotal in addressing the future challenges of the aerospace industry related to the environment (e.g. minimizing noise and pollution) and sustainability. With the ability to succeed in diverse and challenging situations, aerospace engineers are naturally versatile, opening up a wide range of career opportunities, and our graduates can be found in leading private and public sector companies worldwide.


  • All of Aerospace Engineering degrees come with the option of a sandwich year in industry. You can spend up to 12 months getting hands on experience of a real engineering environment with a relevant aerospace company.
  • The School has a wide range of experimental facilities to support aerodynamics, structures, materials and manufacturing teaching. It also operates a flight simulator and runs a week long annual flight laboratory course.
  • Northern Ireland has a vibrant Aerospace industry, and as part of the BEng Aerospace Engineering degree programme, students will undertake a number of visits to Aerospace companies across Northern Ireland to understand what the role of a practicing Aerospace Engineer is in industry, and to relate module content to a real-life work environment.

BEng in Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering is a dynamic and collaborative degree programme; combining academic thought with practical application. Computer Engineers make the impossible possible. They challenge conventional processes and look beyond what exists towards what comes next.

As a Computer Engineering graduate you can not only design the physical hardware but also write the software to run it. Through our diverse network of industry links you begin learning from prospective employers from day one. Industry placements, company-sponsored hackathons and project challenges are a core part of the curriculum and vastly improve our graduate employability rates.


  • Graduates in Computer Engineering are highly sought-after locally, nationally and internationally.
  • Graduates of this degree may apply for jobs in software, electronics or those combining both.
  • There are excellent, well-paid career prospects across a wide spectrum of positions: design; research; development; production; marketing and sales in industries such as avionics and space;
    telecommunications and broadcasting; connected health and medical electronics; consumer electronics and gaming; computing and software; embedded systems and electronic security.
