Why study engineering?

Engineering is an increasingly popular job role in the UK and the country is currently at record shortages for talented engineers. Engineers currently have the top starting salary for students finishing university with a degree in engineering. Engineering allows you to look into everyday problems and find innovative ways to solve them effectively. The course provides you with key and fundamental skills for any engineering prospect ranging from design, cad and making skills.

What will I learn?

The course has four main areas of study:

– R105: examination of the key fundamentals around designing for engineering
– R106: product analysis, disassembling and reassembling a product
– R107: design and computer aided design, designing and virtually modelling a product
– R108: production and manufacture, making a product using engineering drawings

How will I be assessed?

  • R105: examination externally assessed (25%)
  • R106: coursework internally assessed, externally moderated (25%)
  • R107: coursework internally assessed, externally moderated (25%)
  • R108: coursework internally assessed, externally moderated (25%)
