Top up your HND or foundation degree to a full BEng (Hons) on this Institute of Engineering and Technology-accredited course.
Study a variety of electrical and mechanical engineering disciplines both practically and theoretically. When you graduate, you'll be qualified to register with the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) as an incorporated engineer.
The core modules cover key areas of engineering including control systems, power systems, signalling and stress and dynamics, as well as the professional skills you’ll need as an engineer, including project management and engineering maths/modelling.
We can offer you excellent facilities, including a well-equipped computer suite, electronics workshop and materials testing lab. During the project module you’ll be able to produce an engineering design or product of your own.
By the time you graduate you’ll have enhanced your technical skills and knowledge in your engineering discipline, as well as your ability to design, develop and build innovative systems, processes and solutions to budget and user specification.
You’ll also have a strong set of professional skills in fields such as problem analysis and solving, project organisation, self-development, use of engineering systems and multidisciplinary team-working.
To begin this course and gain IET membership you’ll need a recognised HND or foundation degree qualification from a suitable college or university. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss your eligibility.
Our graduates typically go on to successful careers as technicians, design engineers, quality control engineer and test engineers. The course is also great preparation for Masters-level studies or doctoral research.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology has accredited this course and you’ll be eligible for professional registration when you graduate.
We’ll assess your progress via written and spoken exams, assignments and your performance in presentations.
The Faculty of Science & Technology is one of the largest of five faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full- or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, to a BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science and technology fields. This is key to all of our futures.
You can pay your fees in the following ways.
Most English undergraduates take out a tuition fee loan with Student Finance England. The fees are then paid directly to us. The amount you repay each month is linked to your salary and repayments start in April after you graduate.
If you choose not to take out a loan you can pay your fees directly to us. There are two ways to do this: either pay in full, or through a three- or six-month instalment plan starting at registration.
Most new undergraduate students can apply for government funding to support their studies and university life. This includes Tuition Fee Loans and Maintenance Loans. There are additional grants available for specific groups of students, such as those with disabilities or dependants.
We also offer a fantastic range of ARU scholarships, which provide extra financial support while you’re at university. Find out more about eligibility and how to apply.
From September 2018, EU students starting an undergraduate degree with us can access an £800 bursary.
Meanwhile, our £400 Books Plus scheme helps with the costs of study. There's no need to apply for this: if you're eligible you can simply collect a Books Plus card when you start your course.
Minimum entry requirement is an advanced level qualification in a related subject such as National Certificate/Diploma. Grade C or above in GCSE Mathematics and Physics. Alternatively, if you have substantial industrial experience, you may be able to complete a one-year Bridge to HE course (with distinction) at Peterborough Regional College before joining the BEng course. If you don't qualify by any of these routes, please contact us to discuss your previous qualifications and experience.
