This course is aimed at those currently working, or wishing to work, in a mechanical engineering job. You will develop a range of skills and techniques required by the mechanical engineering industry. You will build on your existing experience, knowledge and skills to gain a higher level qualification. The programme meets local employers’ needs, particularly those allied to the manufacturing and automotive industries in the South Oxfordshire region, for HE progression for their employees on a P/T basis. It allows learners from local industries to engage in HE and develop into informed and competent practitioners within a team setting. Through a learner-centred approach that increases ability to learn independently, it allows learners to make a valued contribution to their organisation in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and provides opportunities for these students to become skilled in the use and application of information and computer-based technology.
