Aims of the Programme The Educational Aims of the Programme are to:
  • Provide a course designed to meet professionally accredited requirements 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;
  • Educate students to BEng (Hons) level, partially meeting the educational/knowledge and understanding requirement for CEng registration as detailed in the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (Third edition) (AHEP3);
  • 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;
  • 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;
  • 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.
