Course summary

**Course summary**- Study your foundation year, then progress to a degree with industry accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).- Develop skills in accordance with the Engineering Council's requirements for engineering courses- Undertake numerous practical projects, as well as an opportunity to undertake a paid year in industry- Attain a well-rounded education in mechanical engineering in both a theoretical and practical sense.Prepare for an exciting career with healthy employment prospects across a wide range of industries. You will benefit from our modern and industrial-standard facilities, and gain vital commercial experience through industry focused projects and placement opportunities. You have the opportunity to progress onto the MEng version of the course (based on academic performance).**How you learn**The course is suitable if you don’t meet the entry requirements for our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering course, or you want extra preparation before starting degree-level study. You share the first year with other engineering, maths and physics foundation year students, then move on to the degree.You are supported by online learning resources and high quality laboratories and learning spaces. A structured programme of study provides you with the knowledge and skills to undertake tasks of increasing complexity. You demonstrate your learning through a range of assessment tasks matched to the learning taking place, such as technical report writing, posters, presentations, in-class assessments, multiple-choice questions and examinations.You learn through- lectures- small group tutorials- seminars- engineering workshops and laboratoriesIn the foundation year, you’ll study the fundamental maths, science and engineering principles that you’ll need at undergraduate level, and apply them to a range of different topics. You’ll learn through many of the same techniques used on the degree course, and familiarise yourself with Sheffield Hallam and its facilities — ensuring that you’re ready to hit the ground running.**Applied learning****Work placements**You will be encouraged to apply for placement opportunities during your studies and will be supported in arranging a year-long work placement in between your third and fourth years by our dedicated Placements and Employability Team. This provides you with real-world experience to prepare you for your future engineering career. Previous students have taken industrial placements at companies such as McLaren Racing Limited, Bosch Thermotechnology, Rolls-Royce, BMW, EDF Energy, and Airbus UK.**Networking opportunities**You can get involved with a number of student engineering societies. We also encourage you to become a member of a professional body, such as the Institute of Mechanical Engineers. The IMechE can help with career planning, building of engineering knowledge, and have a wealth of resources including scholarships and awards.**Competitions**Throughout the course you are encouraged to take part in international engineering competitions, such as Europe's most established education engineering competition – IMechE Formula Student – and the IMechE Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge. Both competitions are backed by industry and see you competing against teams from all over the world.Each year our strongest team from The Engineering for People Design Challenge goes on to compete in the Engineers without Borders national final. In 2016 our students won the whole competition and a two-week trip to Mexico City.
