Course summary

**If you have always had an interest in making things, combined with the creativity to solve technical problems, then this course can help you towards becoming an engineer to meet requirements for an all-round programme of study.****About the course**This programme is designed to give you the flexibility and technical capability to be one of the engineers of the future, by exploring the integrated nature of engineering in general. This includes design, manufacture, maintenance, mechanical and electronic and electrical engineering. You could apply this knowledge across a huge range of industries, from food to plastics or pharmaceuticals. You could also work in utilities or even the armed forces.With this course you will gain skills and knowledge across a range of core and more specialist units. The course will suit you if you’ve completed relevant studies at an advanced level (A Level or equivalent) or have relevant industry experience and want to pursue a career in engineering.The course contains significant project-based learning including laboratory investigations, design work, projects, case studies and tutorials.**Core HNC (first year) modules include:**- engineering design- engineering mathematics- engineering science- managing an engineering project **Specialist HNC (first year) modules include:**- electrical systems and fault-finding- operations and plant management- mechanical principles- automation, robotics and PLC ('Programmable Logic Controller')**HND (second year) core modules**- research project- professional engineering management- further mathematics- lean manufacturing**Specialist HND (second year) modules include**- industrial services- further PLCs- industrial systems **Assessment**Assessment is through assignments.**Bursaries**We want our courses to be accessible to students from any background, so we’ve put together a cash support package in the form of non-repayable bursaries to provide financial help where it’s really needed. Details for 2021-22 will be advertised once approved by the university regulator – the Office for Students (OfS).
