Units of study (subject to change) include: Introduction to Product Design/Mechanical Engineering; Maths; Solid Mechanics; Materials Properties and Selection; CAD; Dynamics Principles and Application; Thermodynamics; Fluid Mechanics; Electrical Components. Students will undertake a period of relevant industrial work placement which will assist in developing a sound understanding of the practical applications of some of the theoretical content, this forms a significant portion of the assessment and must be completed by the end of year 2.

Assessment is by a combination of assignments, end-tests and work placement report. The assignments are often based on case studies or practical exercises and are designed to encourage students to explore the wider application of core engineering principles.

Additional Information
Assessment is by a combination of assignments, end-tests and work placement. The assignments are often based on case studies or practical exercises and are largely completed in the students' own time.

Entry Requirements
