This programme has been designed through our close industry links with leading engineering and design companies and provides the specialist knowledge and expertise required for a professional career in design engineering. Project-based learning in all years, including live industry-led projects, will help you develop the transferable skills and multi-disciplinary awareness so highly prized by industry. Year 1 will establish the fundamentals of design and technology and the relationship products have with their users and their environment, and you will work on your practical and project skills in our specialist workshops. Year 2 will develop your practical and analytical skills through study of design methods, environmental considerations, materials and the manufacturing process. You will take on a specialist role in a group project and start detailed planning of your career. Further specialist study and projects in the final year, all informed by the School of Engineering’s active research and industrial partnerships, will give you experience of the latest design challenges faced by industry and society. Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer. Features and benefits of the course: - All Design Engineering units have been designed to use up to date examples from the world of engineering. Every year, the School of Engineering invites industrial and academic colleagues to set new, “live” projects that challenge our students to devise innovative solutions to current problems. You will get feedback and advice directly from industrialists and have the chance to find out exactly what it takes to impress a potential future employer. - You will have the opportunity to work with other students in the Student Society on extra-curricular projects to apply and showcase your engineering and design skills in, for example, the Formula Student racing car competition or the Engineering For People Design Challenge. - You can apply to become a STEM Ambassador – great for developing your communication skills. Full training will be provided for you to work on projects in which you can share your enthusiasm for engineering, design and technology in schools and at public events. - Full training will be provided for you to use our state-of-the-art workshops, laboratories and specialist engineering software. - In your final year, you will present your work at the School's degree show and in a published yearbook - both of which will be viewed by industry representatives.
