About this course


Course option

2.0years

Full-time | 2020

This two year BTEC course is designed for students wishing to progress or reinforce their studies prior to the final year of an honours degree or a career in engineering.

The broad curriculum will provide students with a firm grounding in engineering principles and techniques. Additional to learning theory, students will have opportunities to develop and practice valuable engineering skills to enhance their development.

Modules

Modules may include:

You will study a range of core, specialist and optional units.

Core Units:
Analytical Methods for Engineers
Engineering Science
Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
Mechanical Principles
Electrical and Electronic Principles
Specialist Units:
Business Management Techniques for Engineers
Engineering Design
Materials Engineering
Engineering Thermodynamics
Electrical, Electronic and Digital Principles
Design for Manufacture
Business Improvement Techniques
Personal and Professional Development
Management of Projects
Advanced Computer-aided Design Techniques
Managing the Work of Individuals and Teams

Assessment methods

There will be a wide range of assessment methods and equipment appropriate to the learning outcomes and assessment criteria, and all assessments consider the practices used within the engineering sector. Whilst credit is awarded at a threshold level of achievement only, grading arrangements will apply to individual units which will allow for the award of merit and distinction achievement according to Pearson's published grading criteria.

Assessment is considered an important part of the learning process. In formulating the methods of assessment for this award, care has been taken to ensure that all assessments test the skills and knowledge needed in the Engineering working environment.

Assessment methods will include:

Reports,
Problem based assignments,
Presentations.
There may be classroom tests led by the tutor but no formal examinations.

The assessment methods are subject to a review in August 2019 and there may be some changes at that point.

Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF):

We've received this information from the Department for Education, via Ucas. This is how the university as a whole has been rated for its quality of teaching: gold silver or bronze. Note, not all universities have taken part in the TEF.

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?
