Course description

Raise your professional profile

The accredited BEng(Hons) will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and students will need to complete an approved format of further learning pursuant to the requirements of UK-SPEC. The accredited BEng(Hons) will also automatically meet in full, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

Our BEng (Hons) Manufacturing and Production Engineering top-up programme is designed to provide specific skills and knowledge for a career within the mechanical and manufacturing engineering sectors. The programme is designed to develop solutions to engineering problems using new or existing technologies through innovation, creation and change and to have technical accountability for complex systems with significant levels of risk. The top-up programme will, therefore, offer a partial CEng accredited degree pathway in manufacturing and production engineering.

Build your specialist expertise

The top-up programme seeks to strike an equitable balance between academic technological aspects, practical applications and the transferable skills necessary for a successful career within manufacturing or production engineering. Such knowledge and pool of skills are being demanded by employers and professional bodies for a highly competitive market sector.

Current roles within the manufacturing industries are extremely technologically challenging with ever-increasing paces of change and development, and many of the larger industries now operate on a global scale. Graduate employees must be able to meet the challenges presented by the constant search for improvement and the relentless pace of development that characterise these industries. The development of management studies throughout the programme plays an important part in your educational process.

If you have set your sights on joining the elite of the engineering profession, our BEng (Hons) Manufacturing and Production Engineering top-up programme is the ideal starting point.

This course equips you with the broad range of theoretical and practical knowledge that is essential to the modern manufacturing engineer.
