About this course


Course option

2years

Full-time | 2019

The diverse and ever-changing nature of the engineering industry often requires people who can design, operate, manufacture and maintain equipment and machinery both mechanically and electrically. Designed in collaboration with local industry, this course offers you the opportunity to gain skills and knowledge to operate in multi-disciplined engineering environments. Throughout the course you will study a range of core and specialist modules that will enhance your ability to solve theoretical and practical problems specific to the multi-skilled engineering industry. As part of Work-ready guarantee, 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 mechanical, electrical, manufacturing,maintenance and general engineering environments. Academic progression is available through our one-year BSc (Hons) Engineering Management (Top-Up). Alternatively, you may decide to progress onto the third year of one of our two Honours Degrees - Electrical Electronic or Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering.

Modules

Year One: Academic Study Skills, Drawing Systems, Electrical Science,
Engineering Mathematics, Machine Tools and Fabrication,
Mechatronics Mechanical Science, Personal Development or
Recognition of Prior Learning, Work Related Learning (Project).
Year Two: Electrical Power Transmission, Energy Systems, Maintenance

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.

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?
