This course provides a broad mixture of theoretical and applied engineering principles, coupled with a theoretical, analytical or practical design and manufacture final project. The course has been designed to offer the maximum amount of choice possible in specialist subjects and learning modes. This means that there are some modules taught through lectures and tutorials, some through blended or e-learning.

The course will lead to accreditation at full Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
