Block Delivery: 2 weeks per semester at weeks 3 and 8
Design & Development Engineers work on all stages of product creation, modification, prototyping and introduction stages. They support activities ranging from early concept feasibility and Computer Aided Design to modelling and final preparation for launch to customers. This includes working in concept studios, rapid prototyping, assembly, testing, validating and analysing performance. Typically they work closely with suppliers and managers in bringing new concepts to life or contributing to redesigns of existing products. Postgraduate Engineers will demonstrate high levels of professionalism and lead significant development and operational activities.
The apprenticeship is supported by the choice of two new Postgraduate Diplomas: PGDip Engineering Competence (Mechanical) or PGDip Engineering Competence (Automotive) Degrees integrate with the apprenticeship standard and will assist in the generation of evidence for end-point assessment. Learning outcomes align with the Engineering Councils standard for Chartered Engineer (CEng). With further registration and on the completion of an additional project module, students can qualify for: MSc Applied Mechanical Engineering or MSc Applied Automotive Engineering.
