FdEng Integrated Engineering (Mechanical)

Course Overview

The FdEng Integrated Engineering (Mechanical) is validated by Sheffield Hallam University and covers the fundamental concepts, principles and theories of mechanical engineering; analysis and design; practical and technical skills, and transferable business skills relevant to Engineering. The programme is aligned to the needs of employers and provides a practical and academic challenge within the framework of current industrial practices in Engineering.

The programme staff hold a wealth of professional and industrial experience which will enable you to relate theory to practice. Local employer links are strong as a result of industrial placements, consultancies and the enviable reputation we have established.

The full time programme is spread over 2 years, with attendance of 2 days per week. The part time programme is studied over a three-year period with attendance on one day per week. All students are required to undertake an extended Work-Based Learning project which offers the opportunity for a work-related investigation.

You will normally be required to have achieved the BTEC National Certificate or Diploma, A Level or NVQ/VRQ level 3 qualification in a relevant subject area.

Students with significant practical experience or craft qualifications who do not hold the level 3 entry requirement would also be welcomed.

You could progress into a BSc or BEng degree at most universities. Former UCNL students have successfully progressed to and graduated from Sheffield Hallam University, the University of Lincoln, University of Hull, and the University of Loughborough.

Modules are assessed by various combinations of coursework, in-class timed assessment and formal examination.

In general, modules which are more practical or involve case studies or project work are assessed entirely by coursework. Modules which are intended to develop more fundamental concepts and apply them to practical situations are partially assessed by coursework, but with a formal examination at the end.

A variety of forms of coursework assessment are employed on the programme. These include written descriptive and numerical assignments, short tests, laboratory and workshop appraisals, personal projects, group work, self- and peer-assessment, portfolio preparation and case studies.
