Engineering (Top Up)

Course summary

The one-year BEng top-up programme is designed to complete the journey to a full degree programme, either from a Foundation Degree or an equivalent Level 5 qualification. The College offers the following three programmes: BEng (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Top-Up) BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Engineering (Top-Up) BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (Top-Up) The programmes are currently going through accreditation by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council. This programme is delivered at our Roundhouse campus in the award-winning vocational skills centre packed with the latest industry standard scientific and mechanical equipment – from rapid prototyping to robotics, CAD to electronics. The course is delivered as a series of modules that cover the major themes in engineering. Each module will constitute 1.5 hours per week for 36 weeks per year. The lecturer for each module has relevant industry and academic experience. As well as nine hours spent in College, it is expected that the student will equal this time working outside the College on assessments, research, revision and other learning activities. This is a new programme which will run with a minimum of ten students enrolled on each pathway. It is regulated bythe OfS and awarded by Sheffield Hallam University.


BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (Top-Up) Further Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics Applied Structural Mechanics and Finite Element Analysis Design Evaluation Methodology Systems Engineering Project and Project Management BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Engineering (Top-Up) Design Evaluation Methodology Composite Materials Automation and Robotics Further Manufacturing Techniques and Materials Design Simulation and Operation of Manufacturing Systems Project and Project Management BEng (Hons) Electrical Engineering (Top-Up) Electronic Engineering Application Electrical Power Systems Automation and Robotics Final Year Project Control Systems Engineering

Assessment method

Each module has a different approach to assessment, optimised for the materials studied and skills acquired. There is a common theme of high quality presentation, referenced research and in-depth analysis that runs through all assessments, be they examinations, seminars, coursework or laboratory reports. The intensity of the programme means that any prospective student must be able to make the commitment to study extensively outside of normal College hours.
