The University of Brighton offers courses with an extra year of study at foundation level to give students the support, knowledge and skills needed to progress. This course provides students with a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in mechanical engineering. On successful completion of the foundation year, students transfer to the Mechanical Engineering BEng(Hons). Students benefit from specialist facilities in the university's new advanced engineering building, Sir Harry Ricardo Laboratories and manufacturing workshops. The course is designed with input from industry and accrediting bodies to provide the most up-to-date and relevant programme of theory, practice and work experience.
