Course summary

This course is ideal if you would like to join one of our engineering honors degrees but need a preparatory period of study. It provides an alternative entry route if you do not meet our standard entry requirements but have the ability to succeed at degree-level study. Once you have completed this course, you can join a BEng (Hons)/BSc (Hons) engineering degree of your choice, dependent on satisfactory grades. You will study introductory modules in applied mathematics, engineering mechanics and science required for the later years of your engineering degree. You will begin to learn to conduct and analyse engineering experimental work and to use relevant computing software. You will also be introduced to fundamental communication and study skills. Coursework is designed to be achieved within the set amount of learning hours for each module and is appropriate to the level of study. Mechanical engineering degrees explore the processes by which mechanical products and systems are designed and manufactured.

Our degrees provide a strong base in technical, management and personal skills. Year 1 provides a solid knowledge of the general technical and non-technical subjects that underpin mechanical engineering practices. Year 2 introduces more focused studies, covering specialist subjects such as applied mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electronics, control and computing. You will have the opportunity to extend your mathematics and project-management abilities. Year 3 comprises core engineering topics and advanced mechanical engineering modules, plus a strong focus on independent and group project work. You will gain an understanding of the business world. Mechanical engineers work across a spectrum of roles. Our graduates have gained employment in a variety of areas, such as design engineer for a Formula 1 racing company, project manager for a food processing company, and sales engineer for a company selling packaging machinery.
