Welcome to BEng (Hons) Integrated Engineering

The BEng (Hons) Integrated Engineering is usually studied as part of the Integrated Engineering Degree Apprenticeship. The degree aims to provide a broad knowledge and understanding of mechanical, electro-mechanical, and control engineering that is informed by the research activities of the academic staff, but draws deeply on the practices and experiences of a modern industrial workplace.

The programme is tailored to the needs of those aged 18 and over that are commencing an engineering career within industry or those presently working in the industry looking to advance their engineering qualifications. The programme has three streams that align with three level 6 degree apprenticeship standards, with a focus on mechanical, electrical, or control engineering. This programme may also be studied independently of the apprenticeship scheme by students wishing to undertake their degree part-time with the same blended-learning delivery.

Typical job roles are dependent upon the particular specialism and its associated apprenticeship standard. The mechanical stream follows the Manufacturing Engineer standard, the electrical stream follows the Electrical/Electronic Technical Support Engineer standard, and the control stream follows the Control/Technical Support Engineer standard.

The programme offers an industrially relevant degree programme that places students' learning experience at the centre of every activity and provides students with the partial academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

The course aims to produce graduates who can apply fundamental scientific principles and mathematical techniques in order to conceive, realise, create, and innovate solutions to real-world engineering problems. Students are also expected to develop an awareness of engineering in the wider social, ethical, sustainable, and economic context.

How You Study

The first two levels of study are designed to lay the common foundations of engineering principles. The final level provides an opportunity for students to deepen their education through a broad range of specialist modules.

Delivery is through blended-learning, combining distance-learning utilising a range of delivery and assessment methods and supported by online interactive tutorials with academic tutors.

This online delivery is supported by three weeks on campus throughout the year with the aim of consolidating learning and offering collaborative and interactive aspects to reinforce the content from the online modules.

In addition to this, contact via Skype calls or equivalent, workplace visits, and progress review meetings are carried out regularly as part of the programme.

- Tutorials and Example Classes draw heavily on the students' workplace experiences. These classes provide an opportunity for students to explore and resolve problems under staff guidance and direction.

- Workshops are used to enable students to work on open-ended problems related to real engineering situations. They also provide opportunities for developing team-working and communication skills as well as individual skills.

- Laboratory Classes are used to introduce experimental techniques and practical methods. They provide an opportunity for students to practice team-working and communication skills.

Wherever possible, the programme will make the maximum use of industry-university links so that graduates have the chance to gain practical experience in modern commercial and managerial practices appropriate to the engineering industry.
