This course has been developed in conjunction with local industry to ensure you develop the skills and knowledge to operate in the fast paced mechanical and manufacturing engineering sector. This programme will develop your engineering principles knowledge, give you advanced practical skills and enable you to apply these in work-related projects to best prepare you for employment within the sector. In addition, you will attend industry visits, hear from industry professionals and have the chance to join the Engineering Council as a student member. You will be given the opportunity to work towards EngTech or IEng professional status with the Engineering Council, through a regulatory body. You will be offered the opportunity to visit various engineering companies throughout your studies to gain vital first-hand experience of how engineering theory is put into practice. This course will provide you with the necessary skills to gain employment within the mechanical engineering and the manufacturing engineering sectors. Academic progression is available through our one-year BSc (Hons) Engineering Management (Top-Up) degree. Alternatively you may wish to progress onto the third year of our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering degree.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
