Overview

This course is a conversion course which aims to enable students from a technical, maths, computing or other related background to equip themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable the deployment of digital systems into high technology organisations.

Rapid advances in digital technologies and connectivity have changed the landscape of industry to the extent that many believe we are the beginning of a fourth industrial revolution. This digital future will require a new generation of highly computer-literate engineers who can harness the power of digital engineering and take it to the workplace.

Individuals who have the skill set to design, implement and support these new ‘smart’ techniques and systems to improve industrial competitiveness will be highly employable.

EU student fees

EU nationals and their family members starting in the 2019/20 academic year remain eligible for the same fees as home students and the same financial support. Financial support comes from Student Finance England, and covers undergraduate and postgraduate study for the duration of their course, providing they meet the residency requirement.

For tuition fee loans

EU nationals must have resided in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland for the three years prior to the start of their course. The purpose of that three year residency should not have been mainly for the purpose of receiving full time education.

For maintenance loans

EU nationals must have resided in the UK and Islands for the five years prior to the start of their course. The purpose of that five year residency should not have been mainly for the purpose of receiving full time education.

Career prospects

Professional engineering bodies like the Engineering Council and Engineering UK have predicted that the UK needs to create one million new engineers over the next five years to meet the challenges of digital industry. As a result, there is high employer demand for graduates who can introduce and support the next generation of digital technologies, processes and systems and this conversion course equips students with an ideal skill set.

This qualification will be relevant for all industrial sectors including automotive, aerospace, consumer goods, food, clothing and pharmaceutical.

Disclaimer

By accepting your offer of a place and enrolling with us, a Student Contract will be formed between you and the University. A copy of the 19/20 Contract can be found here. The Contract details your rights and the obligations you will be bound by during your time as a student and contains the obligations that the University will owe to you. You should read the Contract before you accept an offer of a place and before you enrol at the University.

The tuition fee for the course that is stated on the webpage and in the prospectus will apply. If the duration of the course is longer than one academic year, the University may increase the fee for each subsequent year of study but any such increases will be no more than inflation.
