Designed to meet the needs of employers in Production, Manufacturing Engineering and Management, HND level students study Manufacturing Technology and Management of the Production / Manufacturing Process. This will incorporate the latest techniques in the organisation of the work area and quality management. Students will become adept in the use of CAD software to produce engineering drawings that are suitable for conversion to solid models using our modern rapid prototyping facility, and various methods of automated manufacture. Students will also study the types of system available and their capabilities in terms of the rapid introduction of products to a competitive marketplace.
During the qualification you will develop knowledge, understanding and skills in a range of core Production Engineering for Manufacturing Principles, Engineering Science, Engineering Maths and Engineering Design.
This course has been developed in collaboration with our external partners to ensure that your education is relevant and up to date. Emphasising the importance of work-based experience, you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge to existing companies and gain valuable skills that will inform your future practice.
You will be expected to complete a level of self-directed study throughout the duration of this course, and we require you to commit a dedicated amount of time to your learning both in and of college.
