Engineering10

Course outline

This programme is designed to educate future engineers with greater flexibility and technical capability by exploring the integrated nature of manufacturing and mechanical engineering.

It is intended for students who have completed studies at an advanced level, or who have more varied experience and wish to pursue a career in engineering and manufacturing.

The courses contain significant project-based learning including laboratory investigations, design work, projects, case studies and tutorials.

The course aims to:

  • Develop skills in manufacturing and mechanical engineering
  • Encourage students to develop solutions to manufacturing and mechanical problems
  • Establish employability skills and develop a multi-tasking and multi-skills approach

Knowledge of manufacturing engineering and systems is developed by:

  • Understanding the general engineering industry and related work placements
  • Examining historical, theoretical and ethical positions in response to engineering design
  • Considering the relationship between traditional skills and developing technologies
  • Being aware of the creative process of engineering design
  • Understanding the behaviour of materials subjected to complex loading systems
  • Determining the dynamic parameters of power transmission system elements and rotating systems

Practical skills essential for the Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineer include production methods technical aptitude, pre-planning and production organisation and presentational skills.

Core units include:

  • Engineering science
  • Managing professional engineering project
  • Engineering maths
  • Production engineering for manufactur
  • Engineering design
  • Quality and process improvement
