Why choose this course?

The programme has been developed to meet the demands of industry to provide engineering qualifications that not only cover the traditional theoretical aspects associated with this vocation but also encompass new and emerging technologies. The programme integrates academic learning through close collaboration with our industry partners.

 

Both local and national organisations have had significant input into the development of the programme, particularly relating to programme and module content, ensuring it is ‘fit for purpose’. Also students, both past and present, have been involved with the programme development, whereby scheduling of delivery and assessment has been influenced by student feedback. Many previous students have progressed into senior engineering and management roles. The programme team have assimilated feedback from various consultations and research to provide a solid basis for this new programme.

 

Mechanical transmission systems, automation equipment, smart sensors, process instrumentation and automation equipment have been donated by the Industry partners. We have also invested in the latest Profibus diagnostic equipment and Siemens Totally Integrated Automation platform software. This investment enhances the student experience, as they are dealing with industrial standard equipment rather than ‘educational training equipment’.

 

Why not come to one of our weekly informal drop-in information sessions? Staff from the Department will be available on Wednesdays in The Study between 4.00pm and 6.00pm to discuss this programme. Please register your interest here or drop in on the day.
