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 other relevant national qualifications at SCQF Level 6. Entry subject to interview.
HND Mechanical Engineering or progression to employment or university.
