The Combined Engineering degree has been designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required by today’s professional engineers and support individuals looking to develop a career in engineering or undertake post-graduate, specialist study. It will also provide students with the capacity to engage effectively in the application of modern technologies to solve not only today’s problems but also the problems of tomorrow.
As a professional Engineer, you will need knowledge of engineering management. You will get the opportunity to study the field of Mechatronics with specialist investigation into Robotics. A final year project will enable you to select and develop an Engineering topic of interest. The Combined Engineering BSc (Hons) Degree has been designed to provide you with the skills you will need to excel in a modern Engineering environment and the capacity to engage effectively in the application of modern technologies to solve today’s and tomorrow’s problems.
The BSc (Hons) in Combined Engineering is intended for those who want to develop a career as a professional engineer, but do not want to take a specialist route at undergraduate level.
Honours level study will incorporate the aims listed above and a successful graduate will demonstrate:
a) The ability to critically appraise an engineering scenario with a view to apply new technologies to improve efficiency or effectiveness;
b) How to use an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to engineering studies;
c) Developed practical skills to solve complex workshop based problems;
d) Skills to appraise an engineering problem and discriminate between alternative, sustainable solutions;
e) Key practical and transferable skills to enhance their long term employability or to progress to specialist, post graduate study;
f) Criteria to achieve professional membership of the IET at an appropriate status.
