Overview

 Diploma     R/521/4/0097 (A11010) 02/20    3 Years     January,September

This programme examines the basic areas of mechanical engineering, design, materials and manufacturing technology, and aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge required for a career as a mechanical engineering technician. Specific areas studied include engineering principles, mathematics, computing, the relationship between engineering and the environment, mechanical sciences and the mechanics of materials. In addition, students will actively be encouraged to participate in work experience during the course and this usually involves work-based projects, ideally exposing the student to problem solving skills in an industrial situation. Students will be able to pursue a career in a wide range of manufacturing, processing and service industries and the degree offers good employment prospects in the global market.

Career Opportunities

Graduates are qualified to be mechanical engineering technicians in various industries such as manufacturing, sales, construction, inspection and maintenance.
