If you don’t quite have the right qualifications to start our three year BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree or if you want to gain more confidence in higher level work, you could opt to start your studies with a foundation year. The extra year is intended to give you the best possible preparation for success on the degree pathway. It has been designed to develop your skills in mechanics and mathematics – these are important areas of study which will underpin your learning on the degree course. You’ll study introductory modules relevant to the degree course whilst developing key skills for academic study. Successful completion of the introductory foundation year will allow you to progress onto the Mechanical Engineering degree which is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Engineering Council.
