Mechanical Engineering Degree (Evening Class) BSc (Eng)

Stage 3 BSc (Eng) Mechanical Engineering (Evening Class)

1. Overview

This part-time, evening class engineering course is aimed at students who have the potential and motivation to become competent professional engineers but are unable to commit to full-time study. If you have an HND engineering-related qualification and are committed to developing your career, this course will provide you with the knowledge and skills that industry and commerce needs.

The course will enable you to develop into a highly competent professional engineer who is able to develop, manage, operate and maintain complex engineering processes and systems.

2. What you will study

The BSc (Eng) Mechanical Engineering course is a stage 3 only course. The course is divided into two sections (stage 3a and stage 3b) and delivered over two years, each stage normally taking two years to complete. Students typically attend classes two evening per week and will benefit from practical classes and tutorial groups led by staff with experience in both industry and the academic environment.

Stage 3

Students need to undertake a total of 8 modules for the BSc (Eng) in Mechanical Engineering, over the two year period. The EN3602 Project is compulsory and is taken during the second year of study. (C) Core modules have to be taken. Transfer to the BEng (Ordinary) degree is optional by electing to do the stage 3 maths module, EN3900 Mathematics 3, in semester 1. This option will be discussed in further detail during induction.
