If you are taking a GCE A level in a science subject, you will need to pass any separate science practical endorsement.

Access to HE Diploma

D:39

A pass in the Access to HE Diploma (in Science or Engineering) with at least 39 credits achieved at Distinction. This must include 12 credits from Mathematics units (including Calculus) achieved at Distinction and 12 credits from Physics units achieved at Distinction. Our Mechanical Engineering courses are academically challenging and require solid foundations of knowledge in Mathematics and Physics. We are able to consider Access to HE Diplomas in Science or Engineering, and we are looking for you to be studying a suitable level of Mathematics and Physics to be able to succeed in our courses. You will need to have studied Mathematics units worth at least 12 credits (including Calculus) and Physics units worth at least 12 credits. However, due to the time-limited nature of Access programme delivery, it is expected that you will have also completed a significant level of independent study in order to further develop and refine these skills.

Subject

Production and manufacturing engineering

Learn how engineering, manufacturing and management work together in industry. Gain expertise in product creation processes from design to end manufacture.

Our course develops your understanding of the sciences and disciplines relating to manufacturing. You’ll study engineering, manufacturing and management to understand their role in production processes.

We draw on our links with industry to build your knowledge of the integrated systems, processes and technologies used in advanced manufacturing. Learning about the latest engineering developments will inspire you to explore how to produce high quality products at a low cost.

Your first two years give you a grounding in core mechanical engineering principles. You'll combine this with physical science, mathematics and computing to analyse engineering systems.

Translating ideas into practice is an important skill for an engineer. At Bath, you'll have opportunities to practically apply what you’ve learnt through project work. Group and individual projects encourage you to take imaginative approaches to solve complex engineering problems. You could explore new business or engineering technologies in areas such as sports and leisure equipment, medical devices, or data management.

In the last two years of your course, you'll study specialist units including project management, business processes, costing and managing human resources. When you graduate, you'll understand how to design, operate and control manufacturing systems.

Studying an MEng course gives you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work. It also fulfils the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer.

We also offer this course with a placement year, giving you the opportunity to gain work experience as part of your degree.

You have the flexibility to transfer to any of our five mechanical engineering degrees, as well as decide whether you want to go on placement, up until the end of your second year.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Graduates are in significant demand, so unemployment rates are well below the national graduate average and starting salaries are well above average. Much the most common industries for these graduates are now vehicle manufacture - there are not enough people with these degrees to go round and so the big employers tend to take the lion's share at the moment. But pretty much anywhere there is manufacturing, there are production engineers. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

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?
