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 advanced studies , or who have more varied experience who want 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. About the course The course aims to:
- develop skills in manufacturing and mechanical engineering
- encourage students to develop solutions to problems
- establish employability skills and develop a multi-tasking and multi-skills approach.
- 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
