Overview

Modern engineering requires an increasing level of interaction between engineering disciplines that have traditionally been considered to be largely independent. Employers are consequently seeking engineers and technicians with a wide knowledge of many fields rather than a specialised knowledge in one particular area.

Course description

The Level 2 Fast Track Mechanical Engineering programme provides you with a broad engineering education that covers a wide range of mechanical engineering subjects.

You will experience an interactive way of learning. Practical and experimental classes offer you hands-on experience to complement your course's more theoretical modules, while innovative design-build-test projects replace the more traditional lesson and lab sessions.

What areas will I study?

In addition to the core Mechanical Engineering topics, units covered are:

  • The engineering world
  • Investigating an engineered product
  • Health and safety in engineering
  • Engineering materials
  • Interpreting and using engineering information
  • Mathematics for engineering
  • Engineering design
  • Engineering assembly
  • Introduction to communications for engineering
