This course will give you sound knowledge and understanding of the key aspects of mechanical engineering. It’s mainly theoretical, with a small practical element to prepare you for further study or employment.
You will: explore basic mechanical engineering principles; look further at thermofluids; explore dynamics and motion; look more in depth at statics and strength of materials; look at pneumatic and hydraulic systems; look at engineering design for manufacture processes; examine materials; develop skills in engineering drawings; learn how to operate a commercial CAD (Computer Aided Draughting) system; do a significant amount of maths, developing your skills to solve problems within an engineering context.
Higher Maths or Physics; or Foundation Apprenticeship Engineering; or NC Mechanical Engineering (Level 6); or other relevant national qualifications at SCQF Level 6. Entry subject to interview.
HND Mechanical Engineering or progression to employment or university.
