Engineering Machinery

The BEng Part-time Manufacturing Systems Engineering programme has been developed very closely with local manufacturing companies to meet their specific needs.

The aim of this manufacturing course is to develop students with a sound knowledge of manufacturing technology materials and the underlying engineering principles that shape current industrial approaches. In addition, you will learn up-to-date management of quality and manufacturing systems.

The following Bachelor’s degrees have been be accredited as meeting the academic requirement, in part, for Chartered Engineer (CEng in Part) registration for the cohort intakes from 2015 up to, and including, 2023.

Our industry-focused curriculum aspires to produce engineering industry leaders of tomorrow.

Students are taught through a series of lectures, tutorials, laboratories and practical sessions. Assessment of progress is made through assignments, exams and individual projects.

One of the main parts of the final year will be the final year project. This is a work-based project that will allow students to use the knowledge built up through the course to solve a genuine workplace-engineering problem.

If this is the course for you or if you require further information regarding the course, go to register your interest and a member of the apprenticeship unit will be in touch.
