Course summary

The Certificate of Higher Education in Global Design Engineering (Cert HE) enables you to explore the content and learning outcomes of the first year of the Global Design Engineering BEng. This programme bridges the many disciplines of engineering, including mechanical, computer, civil, environmental and product design. Projects will be developed around key themes such as smart cities, sustainability, user-centred design and manufacturing. These projects will be real-life industry challenges and will be co-designed and co-delivered with employers.  This interdisciplinary programme is ideal if you’re interested in all aspects of engineering and don’t want to decide on a specific discipline. The skills and knowledge you will gain are equally applicable to systems, products and processes across engineering. The course is well-suited for anyone considering higher education but unsure about, or unable to, commit to the full 3 year degree. On completion of the certificate, there is the opportunity to progress to a diploma or the degree.   You will acquire knowledge and understanding of:  

  • The importance of context and understanding of user needs in real-world global problems and the relevance of ethical, environmental, social and cultural aspects of engineering design
  • The underpinning scientific, mathematical and engineering principles and methodologies relevant to engineering and design
  • The characteristics of materials, equipment, processes, or products
  • The design process and design methodologies
  • How to apply the principles of engineering design and manufacturing design and development to provide solutions
  • As part of this certificate, you will develop a professional portfolio reflecting upon what you learn throughout the year.
