The course gives you the opportunity to experience different types of learning over three semesters: a taught face to face programme, a period in an industrial placement with some e-learning, and an independent project, based on your work in industry, at our new research institute. At our Institute for Innovation in Sustainable Engineering you can use the latest technology in virtual reality and modelling, advanced manufacturing, control and embedded systems, lasers and much more.
The course provides an ideal platform for you to develop and hone the skills needed to progress your career in a technical or managerial area of the engineering industry by an affordable and supportive route.
Engineering is a diverse subject area and it is important that everyone has a particular specialism. We offer specialisms in areas such as architectural engineering, civil and infrastructure engineering, electronic engineering, intelligent energy systems, materials engineering, mathematical modelling, mechanical engineering, manufacturing and production engineering and supply chain improvement in order to enable you to gains the skills to be at the cutting edge throughout your career. You’ll have the option to choose a specific pathway to focus your learning on an aspect of engineering which best fits your interests and career aspirations.
Engineering is becoming more interdisciplinary and demanding in terms of academic rigour and this course enables you to become a technically qualified engineer. You’ll be capable of finding employment in the exciting area of generating innovative and effective solutions to complex risk situations and industrial problems in industry.
You'll study Innovative Solutions as a core module. You'll choose two 20 credit modules depending on your chosen pathway. The list of pathways are:
Aerospace/Motorsport Engineering; Materials Engineering; Mechanical Engineering pathways Architectural Engineering pathway Civil and Infrastructure Engineering pathway Electronic Engineering pathway Intelligent Energy Systems pathway Manufacturing and Production Engineering pathway Mathematical Modelling pathway Supply Chain Improvement pathway
You'll then study Independent Scholarship (Technology) as a core module.
You’ll need an undergraduate degree (minimum 2:1) in an engineering or a related subject such as mathematics, product design or architecture. You’ll be required to undertake an assessment and interview process.
