The Applied Mechanical Engineering top-up degree is designed to enhance your existing engineering skills and qualifications and in turn, your career.
- Successful completion of this honour’s degree could open a wide range of careers in many engineering disciplines and prepare you to apply for further postgraduate study. The course is aimed at those who have chosen a more vocational route and have a Foundation Degree, DipHE, HND or equivalent in engineering.
- We aim to help you build upon and ‘top up’ your previous qualification and experience with activity-led, hands-on learning, giving you the opportunity to further develop your engineering and mathematical knowledge, understanding, management and analysis skills in a professional manner to problem solve engineering problems.
- You will have the chance to practice your learning through defining, analysing and solving case studies and a research inspired individual project.
- Upon successful completion, you will top-up your existing qualifications to an honour’s degree level through a course that has been specially developed to consider the mechanical and mathematical science and experience you have already gained through your existing qualifications.
The course is designed for you to learn and develop a comprehensive understanding of the mechanical, materials and mathematical (analytical) sciences; approaches to design and product lifecycle; and managerial procedures that provide a basis for working professionally and effectively. The top-up degree is composed of several linked modules that are delivered over the academic year. A major component of the degree is the individual project, which is bespoke in design and allows you to put into practice and further develop the skills that they have learnt in the modules. The individual project is practical in nature and based on a research inspired engineering problem with a professional approach.
