Course Description

BEng (Ord) and BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering Course Overview Mechanical Engineering is specifically concerned with design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything that has moveable parts. As a result, there are job opportunities for mechanical engineers in practically every field of work, transport, health, defence, manufacturing, entertainment, finance, publishing, building, design and research, to name but a few. Mechanical engineers work on the design and analysis of mechanical systems such as automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems and industrial machinery. The Mechanical Engineering degree combines the study of applied mechanics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics together with a strong emphasis on practical skills. What will I study? In the first year you will study underpinning mechanical engineering knowledge and also gain a HNC qualification. The second year includes dynamics, computer-aided design (CAD), applied mechanics and electromechanical systems. The final year includes mechanical systems, heat transfer, fluid mechanics and finite element analysis (FEA). Students will be involved in mechanical engineering design and development projects throughout the course. Modules can include Mechanical Structures Electro-mechanical System Design Mechanical & Electrical Dynamics Course Requirements You need 160 UCAS points, with the majority obtained in relevant subjects such as engineering, Physical Sciences and Mathematics. Applicants with between 80 and 160 UCAS points are advised to apply for the HND Mechanical Engineering course, from which it is possible to progress onto the BEng (Hons) degree course If you already have Higher Education experience then it is possible to join the second or third year of the course. Don't have the grades to get on the course? Don't worry; Blackburn College provide full and part time top-up courses. Progression Graduates have gone on to work in the following areas: commissioning nuclear fuel systems, nuclear decommissioning, project management, safety, aerospace and other related engineering sectors. Many go on to study at postgraduate level. Validated by Lancaster University Duration 3 years (full-time) Top-up 1 or 2 years (full-time) 4-5 years (part-time) UCAS Code E25 H302 - 3 years E25 H301 - post HNC/D top-up
