2. Course description

If you're interested in Mechanical Engineering and want to know how things are designed, manufactured and made to work, this is the course for you. Through consultation with local employers, we have developed a highly industry relevant programme that delivers the knowledge, experience and general transferable skills required for employment in this broad and exciting field.Our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering programme will provide you with the core and specialist principles of this highly employable engineering field to furnish you with the required skills to enjoy an exciting career path within this diverse sector. You will have the opportunity to follow a Mechanical pathway, after you have sampled core engineering subjects.The course consists of core common modules at level 4 and then develops with more subject specialisms later in the programme. Opportunities to explore software and practical subject areas such as computer aided design, controls & simulation and computational fluid dynamics are embedded within the modules to enable a blend of practical and theoretical experiences to enhance employability.A current shortage of skilled mechanical engineers means there are excellent career opportunities for talented engineering graduates as design, production and project engineers within a variety of sectors. Many of our graduates are now employed by major companies such as EDF Energy, Westinghouse Springfields, BAE Systems, Airbus, NIC, GCE and Ford Motor Company as mechanical design, production, project or research and development engineers.

3. Entry requirements

HNC/D with an overall Merit grade in Electrical and Electronic, General or Aeronautical Engineering or an appropriate Engineering discipline.

4. Equipment required

There may be additional costs to consider such as optional educational visits and photocopying/printing.It is highly recommended (but not mandated) that at the start of your programme, you apply for student membership through a professional organisation such as IMechE or IET. Some organisations provide discounted student membership whilst for others there is no charge.*Correct at 2016IMechE - Affiliate Member*: No charge for an apprentice or studying engineering at college or an undergraduate student studying a STEM degree. IET* - Students and apprentices (one year) £20.00. Students and apprentices (for duration of course, up to five years) £50.00You will need your own scientific calculator, we recommend the Casio FFX-91ES (costs start from around £15).Books, Journals and electronic resources can be accessed via the College Learning Resources facility.

5. Assessment method

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
