Course summary

About the course

This course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. Students may also be required to attend workshop sessions at the University for some modules.

The United Kingdom is one of the main users of agricultural and horticultural machinery. Imported machinery is developed, adapted and modified in the UK to support the high crop yields and temperate climate, which make the UK different to the rest of Europe and North America. The aim of the Myerscough agricultural engineering course is to provide the skills that make an organisation successful and provide an in depth understanding of the industry. We pride ourselves on the expertise of our teaching staff, all of whom have experience in the industry.

Agricultural machinery engineering is a multidisciplinary subject which involves the design, construction and preparation of agricultural vehicles and machinery. It also includes the planning of teamwork and project management. This course provides the grounding and understanding of the fundamentals of the machinery business whilst also having the opportunity to specialise in the technology and working practices employed by the industry.

Learning Environment:

Learning activities on the course are diverse, including lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops and presentations, both singularly and in groups. Students are expected to undertake extensive independent study and research to taught sessions. Group work and group presentations form an important part of the course. Students will have access to Myerscough’s virtual learning environment, specialist IT hardware and software, and reference facility.

Assessment:

Students will face a variety of assessments including formative and summative assessment, essays, technical reports, group and individual presentations, individual study projects and case studies based on work experience.

Progression

On successful completion of the course, students may apply to top-up to a full Honours Degree in one year, for example BSc (Hons) Agricultural Machinery Engineering (Top-up).

Careers

Students gaining the Foundation Degree may seek employment in the Agricultural Engineering industry and opportunities exist in all sections. Positions may include for example, a technician in any field of agricultural engineering, sub-contracting, dairy engineering or farming.
