Aims of the Programme a) Provide a professionally accredited course of study that is of comparable standard to those offered by other leading European universities, that will attract high quality students, irrespective of race, background, gender or physical disability both from within the UK and from overseas;
b) Provide students with a thorough knowledge of engineering principles, concepts and mathematics and with practice at using their understanding to solve problems in mechanical engineering in general and in their chosen specialisation of engineering design, computer aided engineering or manufacturing;
c) Enable students to develop the skills necessary to engage in, plan and successfully complete individual and team design projects, and appreciate the economic, social, environmental, ethical and commercial context of their decisions;
d) Produce engineering graduates equipped to play leading roles in industry, the professions and public service, and with the intellectual abilities and transferable skills necessary to further their professional development by personal research or study;
e) Prepare graduates for CEng registration by ensuring that achievement of the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (Third edition) (AHEP3) learning outcomes will automatically satisfy the general learning outcomes appropriate to the degree.
