Description

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.

Additional Information
