Overview

Mechanical engineers contribute to shaping our everyday lives by influencing the design, manufacture and human interaction of everyday products from mobile phones to commercial aircraft. You will develop and hone a broad range of skills required to be a successful engineer in numerous engineering sectors.

This course will develop your knowledge and understanding of range of mechanical engineering subjects, from engineering mathematics to fluid dynamics.

Course description

You’ll be taught by a team of qualified Lecturers who bring their academic and industry expertise and experience into the classroom. Prior to entering Further Education, our Lecturers have worked on technical/engineering projects for organisations ranging from Airbus and BAE SYSTEMS to the British Heart Foundation.

Our teaching methods are varied and engaging, we fundamentally believe that you can’t read textbooks and become a good engineer. We holistically develop your mathematical skills and theoretical knowledge of engineering principles and then put that into practice in the laboratory. You’ll be building and testing mechanical systems and proving that what you’ve learnt in the classroom works in the real-world!

To further broaden your experience in the subject, we invite in industry experts, engineers and university academics to give seminars on the latest engineering and technological developments in industry and academia. Moreover, to give you a taste of what’s on offer beyond life at college, we invite former students to speak to our groups and share their experiences.

What areas will I study?

You will study a broad range of subjects from ranging from Health & Safety in Engineering, Communications and Engineering Mathematics to specific modules in mechanical engineering and design.

Units maybe subject to change to best serve the ever-evolving engineering sector. You are also expected to find and take part in work experience during the course.
