Our course develops your understanding of the sciences and disciplines relating to manufacturing. You’ll study engineering, manufacturing and management to understand their role in production processes.

We draw on our links with industry to build your knowledge of the integrated systems, processes and technologies used in advanced manufacturing. Learning about the latest engineering developments will inspire you to explore ways to produce high quality products at a low cost.

Your first two years give you a grounding in core mechanical engineering principles. You'll combine this with physical science, mathematics and computing to analyse engineering systems.

Translating ideas into practice is an important skill for an engineer. At Bath, you'll have opportunities to practically apply what you’ve learnt through project work. Group and individual projects encourage you to take imaginative approaches to solve complex engineering problems. You could explore new business or engineering technologies in areas such as sports and leisure equipment, medical devices, or data management.

In the last two years of your course, you'll study specialist units including project management, business processes, costing and managing human resources. When you graduate, you'll understand how to design, operate and control manufacturing systems.

To take into account

· What are the objectives of this course?

Learn how engineering, manufacturing and management work together in industry. Gain expertise in product creation processes from design to end manufacture.

· Who is it intended for?

Our graduates have many skills that make them attractive to prospective employers, including teamwork, problem solving, creativity and numeracy. They hold specialist and managerial roles in high technology industries in engineering and manufacturing. Many of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities to pursue academic and research careers.

· Requirements

You will need a strong performance in both Mathematics and Physics or Engineering as part of your entry qualifications. If you are taking qualifications including a mixture of subjects (such as A levels) we prefer either a relevant subject (such as Further Mathematics or Design and Technology) or a traditional subject (such as History). GCSE English grade C or 4 (or equivalent from English language category C).

· Qualification

Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), licensed by the Engineering Council, to fully meet the academic requirements for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council, to fulfil the educational requirements for a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
