Course summary

TEF Silver

TEC Partnership has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support. We will make decisions on the delivery hours for each programme as government advice becomes clearer. This top-up degree validated by University of Hull will enable current and previous Higher National Diploma (HND) Engineering students the ability to progress to level 6 studies in Mechanical Engineering at the Grimsby Institute. This programme will enable students to pursue professional careers in Mechanical Engineering at a graduate level which requires the exercise of professional judgement, personal responsibility and initiative, and the ability to make engineering decisions in conformance with professional Engineering standards. The programme will equip students with analytical skills to systematically employ engineering principles to produce original analysis of solutions using software applications, specific to a Mechanical Engineering context. Students will carry out independent research and manage projects in a relevant engineering context. They will use testing/validation through experimental development to enable them to become acquainted with the use of the latest technologies. This programme ultimately prepares students for post-graduate study and/or a career or employment in the respective Engineering discipline. Aspirations of students are also boosted by significant growth of engineering job vacancies, both locally and nationally which is also echoed by recent data from the Labour Market Intelligence (LMI).

Compulsory Modules: Engineering Project/Dissertation Core Modules: Engineering Management Applications of Finite Element Analysis Thermo-Fluids and Acoustics Optional Module(s): Renewable Energy Engineering and Technology Communication Engineering (Pre-requisite knowledge required)

Assessment method

The assessment approach is designed to ensure the student's breadth and depth of knowledge and understanding will be assessed. The methods used will be a combination of written, visual and spoken forms associated with assessments, such as: assignments/essays, exams, reports, presentations, and posters, as these will allow primary or secondary research to be applied. Visual assessments will use the poster method, whereas oral assessments will use either the presentation or demonstration method.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

240 CATS (Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme) points gained through study at levels 4 and 5 in a relevant field. Standard offer A level 5 Higher National Diploma or equivalent in Mechanical or relevant Engineering discipline is required in order to be accepted onto the degree programme. An equivalent qualification may include a Foundation degree programme with relevance to Engineering, Science or Mathematics. (Both entry routes are subject to successful accreditation of prior learning -APL claims) Students who have been out of education for a while and therefore do not have the current necessary academic skills will be required to undertake a bridging course before commencing the top-up programme.
