You will develop the skills and knowledge to design, implement and manage computer-based systems. You will learn how to integrate hardware and software based systems, giving you skills applicable across a range of industrial, technological and commercial applications. You will benefit from state-of-the-art engineering workshops, electrical engineering and dedicated physical laboratories and an impressive range of specialist equipment and facilities including water jet cutters and rapid prototyping machines. Our courses are designed in conjunction with industry to develop the range of skills and competencies employers demand and maximise your employment prospects on graduation. You will undertake live projects with commercial organisations and manufacturers giving you invaluable insight into real-world engineering. The four year sandwich route gives you the opportunity to spend a year on a work placement in industry. You can get involved with other engineering students in extracurricular work to apply your engineering and design skills, for example, the formula student racing car competition. The School of Engineering at Manchester Metropolitan University works actively with the Professional Engineering Institutions and encourages its students to engage with them. Applicants should note, however, that Professional Body Accreditation for our Engineering degrees for 2017 entry is not in place. With a Manchester Met degree you may still apply for professional registration in the future through an â??Individual Routeâ?? (IET) an â??Academic Reviewâ?? process (IMechE) or an â??Individual Case Routeâ?? (IED). We would support you in this process.
