Mechanical Engineering PGDip
Mechanical Engineering is the basis of just about anything that has movable parts, which includes areas like transport (automotive, railway, aerospace), renewable energy, medicine and manufacturing. These areas will continue to be very important to the UK economy, and indeed to all developed economies.
The taught part of this course consists of six compulsory modules covering system design and modelling, mechanics, control, CAD/CAM, and renewable energy resources and devices. A major industrial project allows you to extend your knowledge by exploring an area that especially interests you, whilst giving experience of the way in which a complete product or process requirement in industry would be addressed.
The PgDip covers a selection of taught modules, with no individual dissertation. Students may progress to an MSc given good results.
