BSc(Hons) Engineering is a one-year top-up course that turns an Engineering Foundation Degree, HND or international qualification into an honours degree.
Building on the foundation of your previous studies, choose pathways in manufacturing or electronics.

Study manufacturing subjects such as mechanical design, manufacturing systems, alternative energy, operations and quality management, and automated manufacture. Or study electronics subjects like robotics, signal processing, computer networks and embedded systems.

Apply your knowledge through a series of live projects with real clients to ensure you’re industry-ready when you graduate. Get an inside track on the industry ideas and career options at presentations from visiting professionals.

Go on to choose from engineering careers in the UK and overseas. Opportunities include positions as computer-aided design (CAD) engineers, technicians, mechanical engineers, project managers, and product support engineers.
