This course primarily aims to provide progression from HNDs in Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Building Services Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Construction Studies, onto level 6 (honours stage) so that you can attain the qualification of BSc (Hons).

The degree is designed to broaden knowledge and skills and may be studied in one year on a full-time basis, or between two and three years on a part-time basis. The course is designed to enhance expertise in a chosen specialism but is also supported by a broad range of complementary technological and commercial skills to produce a flexible, multi-skilled technologist.

The course will seek to develop your ability to communicate effectively with customers, clients, colleagues and management as well as a high level of technical proficiency and professional abilities. You will learn how to manage a wide range of practical problems within commercial constraints.

Student comments

"The course is very practically orientated with respect to the theory and lecturers try to relate this to real situations. The course is structured very well and assessment is spread out. Lots of support from the staff. There is always time to speak to lecturers if you have a problem. Lessons are structured and organised." RM, student
