International Stage Two (IS2)
Three year course
The IS2 is the equivalent to second year level study of a typical four-year Scottish undergraduate degree. This programme provides an intensive combination of more advanced subject specific content with extra Mathematics and English academic literacy skills. Upon successful completion of the IS2, you will continue to the final two years of your chosen degree course with the University of Dundee.
Why choose the IS2 at Dundee?
The IS2 programme is the start of your three-year journey towards an undergraduate degree with the University of Dundee. The continuation routes available cover a range of disciplines in the University of Dundee’s School of Business and School of Science and Engineering.
For the School of Business there are a number of continuation degree options in disciplines such as Economics, International Business, Management and Finance. These Business ‘in practice’ degrees have been designed with your future employability in mind. The 'in practice' component incorporates professional focused content plus an internship facilitated by the School of Business to give you every opportunity to be a career-ready graduate for the world of tomorrow.
For the School of Science and Engineering there are continuation degree options to Year 3 of BEng (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering and BEng (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering with Renewables.
The BEng (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering degree focuses on mechatronics - the integration of electrical and mechanical components. This means you'll learn to design and manufacture modern, high-performance products across a range of industries. You'll also learn about microcontroller programming, software for computer-aided design (CAD), and how to implement engineering solutions with economic constraints. For example, you'll take part in an engineering design project where you'll design and manufacture a prototype.
The BEng (Honours) in Mechanical Engineering with Renewables mixes traditional core engineering with emerging technologies in the alternative energy field. Renewable energy involves every aspect of the study of matter and energy. You'll gain a range of technical, creative, and management skills relevant to the renewable energy industry. You'll have the opportunity to get involved in practical and industry-led projects and use what you have learned to present solutions to industry experts.
