BSc (Hons) Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (Top Up)

Our Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering degree top-up course is suitable for you if you have already achieved a Level 5 (HND) qualification in Engineering. You will build on the knowledge and skills you have attained from previous study to expand your learning of mechanical and manufacturing engineering processes. You will learn how to interpret mechanical engineering design and create computer models for simulation and analysis. You will also learn methods of complex stress analysis and how structures react and respond under load. You will work with your fellow engineering students to identify and propose an innovative approach to problem solving.

What will I study?

During your top-up degree you will learn how to interpret mechanical engineering design and create computer models for simulation and analysis. You will also learn methods of complex stress analysis and how structures react and respond under load. You will work with your fellow engineering students to identify and propose an innovative approach to problem solving. You will analyse the market, assess the needs of the business and then evaluate your approach detailing how you have applied your knowledge. Your final project will allow you to put all your learning into practise as you demonstrate the skills you have learned and put them into practice as you undertake a practical project in association with a local employer.
