Accredited by the IET for Incorporated Engineering status
Our course is accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) as fulfilling the educational requirements for registration as an incorporated engineer when students transfer from the accredited HND or Foundation degrees taken at Peterborough, Huntingdon and Thurrock and Basildon colleges.

Course overview

This course allows you to study a variety of electrical and mechanical engineering disciplines both practically and theoretically. You will have the opportunity, through the final-year project module to produce an engineering design or product. This course will improve both your practical and academic skills to prepare you for a wide range of opportunities either in employment in R&D or on to a Masters degree course.

The specific aims of this course are:
  • To provide the opportunity for you to progressively acquire a thorough grounding in the concepts and skills of the central topics in engineering.
  • To provide the specialist knowledge base and skills for you to specify and design the electronics subsystems relevant to a particular subject area.
  • To provide you with the engineering skills and knowledge required in a business context to achieve an economic solution.
  • To widen and develop your experiences and your organisational and analytical skills such as to enable you to enhance your role within your organisation.
  • To enable you to consolidate professional and personal expertise in competitive commercial and industrial environments.
  • To widen and develop your understanding of essential facts, concepts, principles and theories to your chosen engineering discipline.
  • To develop your creative and innovation skills in solving problems, and in designing systems, components and processes.
  • To work separately or in a multi-disciplinary team.
  • To encourage you to become an effective engineer and undertake lifelong learning particularly for continuing professional development.

Additional course information

Upon completion of this course you will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of:
  • appropriate mathematical methods relating to modelling and analysing engineering problems;
  • the principles appropriate to the specific discipline;
  • management and business practices and apply professional and ethical responsibilities including global and social context of engineering;
  • the use of relevant test and measurement equipment;
  • teamwork, management and leadership for effective practice.
