If you want to develop your ideas, solve problems, make prototypes, use 3d printers and get hands-on with tools and materials this is the course for you. It’s been developed with input from industry to prepare you for an engineering career with confidence to communicate and understand both theoretical and applied principles. You will have the opportunities to work with others, work on exciting briefs, use equipment, understand manufacturing processes and how they influence design. This course is ideal if you’re interested in product design, creative engineering and innovating your ideas. You will be introduced to Computer Aided Design, materials and manufacture with a focus on key engineering skills through the use of examples and problem-based learning. You could develop the skills to develop amazing design solutions that could help society and change the world! The BSc Engineering Design Course aims to: • Enable you to pursue professional careers in Engineering at a level which requires the exercise of sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative, and the ability to make engineering decisions. • Equip you with an understanding of the principles of engineering science, some aspects of which will be at, or informed by, the current boundaries of the discipline. • Equip you with skills to systematically employ a range of engineering principles to produce original analyses of, and solutions to, engineering problems. • Provide you with a broad-based education in a range of engineering allowing scope for entry into a wide range of disciplines within engineering. Including Electronics, robotics and CAD for example. • Allow you the opportunity to undertake and complete a significant independent project on a given topic in the Engineering Design field. • Allow you to develop the ability to adapt to new technology relevant to engineering and to seek and assimilate new information. The BSc (Hons) degree has been structured and developed to fully satisfy the educational requirements for professional registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
