The hands-on learning throughout the course developed on and off campus and on-line learning will develop your practical problem-solving approach. This makes up 40-60% of each year of study so you can be a confident, work-ready engineer by the time you graduate.
You'll start by learning the essentials of mechanical related engineering, engineering evaluation, concept generation, design, prototype and testing real problems. You'll also develop your confidence in applying the fundamental science (laws of physics), mathematics and statistics principles, and computing skills in context to engineering. Through workshops you'll put theory into practice and you'll have the opportunity to work collaboratively on a group project in your first year.
As you progress through the degree, you'll be supported to gain specialist skills and knowledge in areas such as engineering product life cycle, CAD tools, Industry 4.0 technology, manufacturing control, instrumentation, and communication systems
In Year 3, you'll work independently and collaboratively as part of a team on a major design engineering project.
In the final year, you'll learn management skills and will gain in confidence and experience of leading a team and working individually on a team project. You'll research and develop an innovative solution to a complex product, working in the way an industrial engineer would work.
The strong focus we place on preparing you for employment means you'll have an opportunity to undertake a work placement developing relationships within an inclusive engineering organisation. Where you can demonstrate and share your skills to make your mark on a live project and further develop your transferable skills to help your CV stand out from the crowd.
