Overview

The FdEng in Engineering (with Specialisms) has an industry focused approach, where graduates develop an extensive range of professional subject knowledge and technical skills. The programme has been designed in a more applied nature.

Course delivery is part-time, over three years.

Students will study part time, whilst working in a relevant place of employment in the engineering industry and in the final semester will complete a period of work based learning to compliment and consolidate their academic study.

This programme has been designed to ensure graduates develop the skills and attributes to contribute in a meaningful way to local and regional engineering companies. There is a focus on developing the broad engineering skills in mathematical and scientific principles, underpinned by a practical and applied approach to developing technical, professional and 21st century skills which are informed by, and aligned with, the needs of industry. The programme aims to instil a sense of enquiry, problem solving, and pragmatism through the integration of project based learning, industry relevant teaching and assessment and an introduction to future systems which will ensure a ‘work ready’ and sought after graduate.

Entrants should have attained a grade C or above in GSCE Maths and English and hold a related Level 3 qualification(s) equating to 56 UCAS points.

Mature candidates currently working/or with experience in the engineering industry but haven’t acquired the 56 UCAS points may apply through an Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) route.

Assessment is varied and linked to industry relevant qualities and will include written reports and assignments, CAD drawings, individual and group presentations, class tests, laboratory reports and formal, end-of-semester examinations.

Completion of this Foundation Degree will facilitate progression to higher level roles within the candidates own place of work.

Students are also in a position to articulate into year two of an associated Honours Degree at Ulster University provided they meet the entrance criteria.

Students can progress to a ‘Top Up Degree’ in Engineering within SWC approved by the Open University on a part time basis.

There are a number of alternative Higher Education Institutions offering part-time and full time top ups to level 6 and above.

The Mechatronics Specialism is delivered in the Omagh Campus.
