Course Requirements

All applications will be considered on individual merit. However, offers will usually be based on:

1. BTEC Level 3 qualification in Engineering
2. GCE Advanced Level profile that demonstrates strong performance in a relevant subject or adequate performance in more than one GCE subject.
3. GCSE grades at A* to C (or equivalent) and/or 9 to 4 (or equivalent) in subjects such as Mathematics and English
4. Other related Level 3 qualifications
5. Access to Higher Education Diploma from an approved further education institution
6. Relevant work experience, or an international equivalent to the above qualifications

What you will Learn

You will delve deep into the core principles of engineering, including specialisms such as thermodynamics, production engineering and mechanics. Hands-on laboratory sessions, workshops, and industry-relevant projects will enhance your practical expertise, allowing you to apply theoretical concepts to real-world scenarios. Successful completion of the course will enable you to perform key mechanical engineering tasks in the sector, understand processes and operations, and work effectively.

Assessment

Coursework and Assignments: Coursework and assignments are common assessment tools. Students are given specific projects or tasks related to their coursework, and they are evaluated on their ability to apply theoretical knowledge to practical problems.

Practical Work: Practical laboratory sessions are a crucial part of an electrical engineering program. Students may be assessed on their ability to conduct experiments, analyse data, and draw conclusions from their findings.

Reports and Technical Writing: Students may be required to write technical reports based on their laboratory work or projects. These reports assess their ability to communicate technical information effectively.

Presentations: Students may be asked to give presentations on engineering topics, projects, or case studies. This assesses their communication and presentation skills, as well as their understanding of the subject matter.

Progression

On successful completion you may progress to a HND at Level 5 and then to a top-up Level 6 on a related undergraduate programme such as:

BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering
BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering and Management
BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Production Engineering
BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering
