Course summary

If you’re working in engineering-related employment at a technical level and would like to boost your career, this qualification can combine academic skills with the needs of your workplace. This course will build on your existing skills and experience to support your professional development plans. It applies the study of engineering fundamentals like energy, design, manufacturing, materials, mechanics and structural analysis, to the solution of real-life problems. Mathematical skills are key to successfully studying engineering, so it’ll develop these too. This diploma will be of particular interest to those living and working in Scotland. The same programme of study is also available as the Foundation Degree in Engineering (X11). Key features of the course

  • Expands on your existing skills and experience to support your professional development plans
  • Applies the study of engineering fundamentals to the solution of real-life problems
  • Builds a solid foundation for further study, with the option to top-up to an honours degree
  • Registration is expected to open in March 2020 for courses starting from October 2020.
A nationally recognised qualification in its own right, this diploma of higher education is also equivalent to the first two-thirds of an honours degree – see the Top-up Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Q78) for more information.
