Applied Mechanical Engineering (Top-Up) at Coventry University - UCAS

Course summary

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.
Key Benefits The BSc Applied Mechanical Engineering top-up degree aims to provide you with a practical, industrially relevant, hands-on experience which is based on the understanding and development of traditional and research inspired engineering and mathematical science and technology. The degree provides a rigorous balance of academic knowledge and development. Upon successful completion, the course should provide you with the skills needed to solve engineering problems through analysis and critical evaluation, using professional engineering, design and management tools. We will support you to learn and adopt working practices that are professional and innovative in a manner where there is an awareness of fundamental theoretical and analytical approaches to problem-solving. Successful completion of this degree should also give you a good grounding to develop the highly scientific, numerical, analytical, practical and problem-solving skills that are sought within the engineering sector and other diverse fields such as managerial and finance and beyond. You will have the opportunity to access and benefit from a wide range of teaching and research facilities*. We currently have strong links with major international and national potential employers and our current teaching staff are experienced professionals that are industry and/or research-active in their fields. *please see website for details


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. Modules Individual Project Introduction – 10 credits Manufacturing Process Improvement – 20 credits New Product Development Strategies – 20 credits Individual project – 20 credits Applied Mechanical Science – 20 credits Analytical Materials and Manufacturing Methods – 20 credits Add+vantage Module – 10 credits We regularly review our course content, to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students.
