Mechanical Engineering

Course summary

Mechanical engineers are essential to the workings of our modern world, combining imagination and technology to offer innovative solutions. They design, build and test new products, processes and systems. On this exciting new course, you’ll develop holistic engineering knowledge and problem-solving abilities as you work towards a globally-recognised qualification, sought after in a wide range of sectors. About the course Mathematical and scientific principles underpin mechanical engineering, used to produce engineering designs and manage engineering projects. You will expand your problem-solving abilities, working as part of a team and developing key analytical skills. You’ll study advanced design analysis and manufacturing techniques, enabling you to turn engineering design solutions into innovative, efficient, durable and sustainable products and systems. Advanced mathematical and engineering modelling techniques are used for optimising mechanical and thermodynamic systems such as power transmission mechanisms and heat exchangers. HNC Core units: • Engineering Science • Managing a Professional Engineering Project • Engineering Maths • Engineering Design HNC Indicative specialist units: • Materials, Properties and Testing • Mechanical Principles • Fundamentals of Thermodynamics and Heat Engines • Fluid Mechanics Assessment A variety of traditional and innovative assessment methods are used, including: essays, technical reports, project plans, worked solutions and presentations. Bursaries We want our courses to be accessible to students from any background, so we’ve put together a cash support package in the form of non-repayable bursaries to provide financial help where it’s really needed. Details for 2024-25 will be advertised once approved by the university regulator – the Office for Students (OfS). Please check our website - www.nottinghamcollege.ac.uk - for more information. Your career and progression The HNC qualification is widely recognised in its own right and provides students with the skills required for employment in a broad range of industries with either a managerial or technical bias. After successfully completing the HNC you could top up your qualification to the HND at the College and then the third year of a BEng or BSc (Honours) degree at a wide range of institutions. Graduates will be well-placed for a career in a variety of engineering sectors including manufacturing, utilities, power generation, process, aerospace, rail and automotive. Typical roles include design, research, testing, production, quality, operations, maintenance and project management.
