About this program

BEng (Hons) Manufacturing and Production Engineering (Top up)

The accredited BEng(Hons) will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and students will need to complete an approved format of further learning pursuant to the requirements of UK-SPEC. The accredited BEng(Hons) will also automatically meet in full, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

Our BEng (Hons) Manufacturing and Production Engineering top-up Program is designed to provide specific skills and knowledge for a career within the mechanical and manufacturing engineering sectors. The Program is designed to develop solutions to engineering problems using new or existing technologies through innovation, creation and change and to have technical accountability for complex systems with significant levels of risk. The top-up Program will, therefore, offer a partial CEng accredited degree pathway in manufacturing and production engineering.
