Course Description

Foundation Degree Mechanical Engineering course code: 0105p40-1 start dates: September 2010 course length: 2 Years location: WCT - All Saints Building, Deansway first year fee: ?TBC you may also be interested in: HNC/D in Mechanical Engineering Foundation Degree/HNC/HND in Manufacturing Engineering course content You need to be employed in a relevant industrial company to be able to enrol on this qualification as it is work based and requires industrial support for evidence for assignments and a valid, structured industrial project for both years of the course. The first year subjects are mostly underpinning knowledge such as maths, science and business. There is a more practical module which covers the design process and a module which investigates the materials and processes used in manufacturing components. The mechanical principles module develops the mathematical calculations required for stress, strain and dynamics. The second year is based on practical applications of engineering topics such as CAD (Autocad and Solidworks), pneumatics and hydraulics (Automation Studio simulations and practical work on boards), plcs, robot technology and mechatronics. There is also a quality assurance and environmental module which allows students to investigate theoretical ideals with company practice. assessment All units are continually assessed by the College and validated by Aston University. There is a mixture of group and individual assignments and some internally set examinations. career opportunities This course is directed towards developing individuals in work based learning so that career progression opportunities should be strengthened. progression Direct progression onto the final year of the B Eng in Mechanical Systems degree programme at Aston University.
