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.

This foundation degree is offered:

Full Time over 2 years

Students will study full time, and in the second year will complete a period of work based learning to compliment and consolidate their academic study.

Part Time over 3 years

Students will study part time, 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.

FULL TIME:

Entrants should have attained a grade C or above in GSCE Maths and English and hold a related Level 3 qualification(s) equating to 64 UCAS points.

Mature candidates currently working/or with experience in the engineering industry but haven’t acquired the 64 UCAS points may apply through an Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) route.

PART TIME:

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 engineering sector.

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

Students can progress to a ‘Top Up Degree’ in Engineering within SWC approved by The Open University.

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

The Mechatronics Engineering Specialism is delivered in the Omagh Campus.
