Design Engineering (TOP UP) BSc (Hons)

This influential programme brings together sophisticated computer tools, engineering and creativity to produce design engineers for the twenty-first century.

On this course, you’ll learn how to use the latest solid modelling, rendering and product simulation tools to model and evaluate your designs, as well as gaining an in-depth understanding of the engineering principles underlying the product development process. Designed to develop your abilities in this exciting area, the course content integrates technology, arts, market awareness and the skills needed to use advanced product development tools.

The year is based upon an individual project, and you'll have easy access to all the university facilities as well as guidance and advice from academic staff. All students will have the opportunity to showcase their work at our annual Festival of Design & Engineering.

This degree has been accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) and Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement, in full, for Incorporated Engineer registration for 2019-2023 intake years. For students who have joined the BSc (Hons) in Design Engineering (Top-Up) from a Foundation Degree, only those who have studied the FdEng in Engineering (Mechanical Design) and FdEng in Engineering (Marine Technologies), pending review of final output, will be accredited. Students entering this programme from the FdEng in Engineering (Manufacturing Management) and FdEng in Engineering (Electronic Design) will not be accredited.  

An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
