Electro-Mechanical Engineering with Foundation Year BEng (Hons)

Studying to be an engineer and gaining the right skills and the right qualifications, can lead you to frequent travel, passion projects and a fulfilling career. The Electro-Mechanical Engineering with Foundation Year BEng (Hons) course aims to provide you with a solid grounding for building a career in the engineering sector.

The strength of the course lies in preparing students, who are unable to follow the more traditional route onto a degree course in Electro-Mechanical Engineering. It is Considered an art by many, engineering is a combination of science and technology that is concerned with solving complex problems, such as machinery, infrastructure, design and many more. Practitioners of this discipline are capable of working on significant global issues such as the effects of climate change or improving city infrastructure.

Entry Requirements

40 UCAS tariff points. All Foundation courses require 5 GCSEs at A-C including Maths and English, and at least one A2 level or a BTEC equivalent qualification.

English language requirements

  • IELTS: 6.0 (with at least 5.5 in each component area). If you don't meet the English language requirements, you can achieve the level you need by successfully completing a pre-sessional English programme before you start your course.

Career Prospects

On successful completion of the Electro-Mechanical Engineering (with Foundation Year) BEng (Hons), you will be able to:

  • Critically appraise an engineering scenario with a view to apply innovative technologies to improve efficiency or effectiveness.
  • Explain engineering principles, solve simple, practical problems in an engineering context, show practical skills in a laboratory/workshop environment and have the educational preparation for a career as an engineering technician.
  • Use an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to engineering studies.
  • Develop practical skills to solve complex workshop- based problems.
  • Appraise an engineering problem and debate alternative, sustainable solutions.
  • Key practical and transferable skills to enhance their long-term employability or to progress to specialist, postgraduate study.

Course Details

The foundation year aims to provide you with the fundamental knowledge and skills needed in a range of mathematical and business principles, as well as the theories and concepts of electrical and mechanical engineering.The Electro-Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) degree element of the course focuses on the demands of the modern engineering workplace encompassing the main engineering disciplines. This will reflect contemporary practices, with an emphasis on practical skills and student employability. High levels of support are a cornerstone of the course and you will work on diverse realistic projects throughout your final year. With the pace of technological development, engineering should be considered as applied problem-solving. Integrating the different technologies at the heart of modern engineering, this course aims to provide a grounding in a variety of different engineering disciplines before developing skills in accessing information, converting it into knowledge and applying and evaluating it.
