Description

Why choose this course? This course is designed to meet the needs of people working in engineering. It is delivered on a part-time basis in order to fit around employment. Developed with employers from a variety of industries, you will work with industry standard technology and specialise in your area of interest in one of four pathways:   Automation and instrumentation or electrical Plant maintenance or mechanical Mechatronics Engineering management   The main focus of this programme is to make learning stimulating, interactive and challenging. This course will ensure that you understand new and emerging technologies while giving you a firm foundation in theory.   This one year top up (level 6) will enable you to obtain a BEng (Hons) in Industrial Engineering. This means that the overall cost will be less and you will graduate with a full honours degree in only three years (level 6 top up subject to meeting entry requirements).
