Course Details

You will begin the course by learning about professional practical engineering and you will study engineering design and engineering science. As you progress through the degree, you will explore mechanical engineering in more depth and you will study modules that are specific to manufacturing engineering, such as manufacturing control, instrumentation and communication, and design and analysis for automated manufacture. 

Throughout the course, your hands-on learning both on- and off campus and on-line, will develop your practical problem-solving approach through active learning laboratories, engineering laboratories and the use of engineering workshops and makerspace. You will undertake small group projects, typically sourced from industry. You will also develop skills enabling you to:

  • work effectively and supportively in diverse and inclusive groups
  • communicate effectively in groups and one to one
  • apply project management to group-work
  • apply principles of commercial management and consideration of wider issues.

Each year you'll undertake a large group project which will be supported by the use of on-line tools and on-line project management approaches akin to industry. These projects, which are typically sourced from industry, will help you build in confidence and develop your learning in engineering business, practice and project management.

In year 1, you will have the opportunity to develop your knowledge and understanding and some application. As you progress to year 2, you will apply your knowledge and understanding to conceive, design, build and operate a solution to a problem. In your third year, you will undertake an individual research and development project that will inform the group project and help you to develop and illustrate the ability to critically analyse the application of your knowledge and understanding to solve an engineering problem.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake a work placement and gain valuable experience working alongside industry experts.
