This programme is offered in partnership with the University of Cumbria and is aimed at those who want to improve their Foundation Degree or HND in and move into a role in Engineering with more responsibility and better prospects along with potentially a higher earning potential.
Students will attend one day and evening per week for the full-time route and will undertake a placement of 120 hours per academic year alongside their academic studies where they are not already in relevant employment.
Part time students will take a selection or modules from the full time programme.
What will I learn?
Both awards normally include the following common modules:
• Project (inc. Project Management)
• The Professional Engineer
• Engineering Systems Design and Simulation
• Engineering Innovation. Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Problem Solving
In addition to the common modules, the BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Engineering will normally include one of the following:
• Advanced Materials Science
• Manufacturing Operations Management
In addition to the common modules, the BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering will normally include one of the following:
• Microprocessor Applications
• Electrical Power
How will the course be assessed?
The major project, which makes up a third of the total credits, is assessed 100% by coursework. Most of the remaining modules are assessed 50% by coursework and 50% by examination. The overall assessment split depends on the option modules selected but is approximately 75% coursework and 25% examination.
Materials and other information
All HE enrolments are subject to the College’s Higher Education Student Agreement.
Qualified engineers are much in demand for their rigorous approach to work roles and problem solving. Their skills open up a wide range of other career opportunities and
these exist in a diverse area of fields which could include research, design and development, commissioning, project management, technical sales, technical journalism and patent work.
