The FdEng Engineering course is designed to kick-start your engineering career, developing your skills in a specific discipline and providing a strong engineering foundation. You will build upon your basic engineering knowledge and develop advanced practical and theoretical skills in preparation for employment or further study. This Engineering course offers progression for those who have studied a related course during further education and provides an excellent balance of academic and industrial knowledge. It offers a pathway into mechanical or electrical engineering for those who may not have any previous experience of engineering as a subject but do have a strong maths or physics background. You will be encouraged to apply for and work towards Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status. You will also be given the opportunity to visit various engineering companies throughout your studies to gain vital first-hand experience of how engineering theory is put into practice. After this degree, you will be able to progress onto the BEng (Hons) Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering (Top-Up) degree, BEng (Hons) Electrical Electronic Engineering (Top-Up) degree, BSc (Hons) Engineering Management (Top-Up) degree or a Higher or Degree Apprenticeship.
