Bachelor of Engineering (with Honours) - BEng (Hon)
Distance / Online
If you have an interest in improving and creating products and want to top up your HND or Foundation degree to a full Bachelor's degree, this BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering top-up degree course is ideal.
The course is delivered by distance learning over 2 or 3 years. So you can easily fit it around work and other commitments. You’ll learn the fundamentals of engineering science and design, including Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and specialise in advanced subjects such as conservation and quality management.
With your Bachelor's degree, you'll contribute more to your employer, boost your career prospects and be prepared for work in engineering and technology in areas such as consumer product design, robotics, defence or aerospace.
The content of the course is broadly similar to IET accredited courses offered by the Department, although since the programme is equivalent to a one-year full-time programme, it is not accredited by the professional body. The proposed programme is compatible with similar courses offered in the department and other institutions within the UK.
What you'll experience
On this course you'll:
- Learn about the underlying elements of successful engineering and manufacturing projects, including solid mechanics and dynamics, and electrical and electronic principles
- Specialise in advanced subjects such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) engineering, sustainable product development and design for quality
- Tap in to our Library’s electronic resources, which you can access from anywhere with a Web connection
- Get the same support and similar benefits to students based on campus
- Work at your own pace, in your own time and in your own location, with interactive online learning materials
- Take part in live Web-based chat forums to discuss your work with lecturers and other students
