Develop the ability to analyse engineering systems, designs,
processes and products, use computer-aided engineering tools and design
techniques, as well as how to apply management and business concepts.
The degree course has Incorporated Engineer accreditation from
the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Honours degree has
partial Chartered Engineer accreditation.

course work as a full-time student, but over a longer period of time. You’ll
generally come in to University for one day per week, and a four-year Honours
degree will take around six years to complete part-time.
