The BEng (Hons) Top-up Degree in Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering offers a progression route from Level 5 FdEng or HND qualifications in an appropriate Engineering discipline. This programme has been developed and successfully delivered to meet the needs of key employers within the North East region along with national and inter-national businesses. This course aims to develop under-graduates and industry professionals with higher level skills, contributing to the region's competitiveness and to shorten the skills gap of future engineers both nationally and internationally. This course is designed to build upon previous knowledge and experience to a Bachelor’s Degree level, providing an excellent balance of academic and industrial knowledge. The BEng (Hons) Degree in Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering at Newcastle College is designed to enrich your engineering journey by enhancing and developing new skills, by teaching advance engineering principles in a range of applied mechanical applications, mechanical systems and processes, modelling and analysis and product development. This BEng (Hons) Top-up degree will provide practical experience including destructive and non-destructive testing, finite element analysis and fracture mechanics. A degree in mechanical manufacturing engineering opens many industry doors and you can choose from varied career options in a wide range of industries, such as design, manufacturing, military services, aerospace, automotive, rail, control, renewables energies, subsea applications and specialist measurement techniques. Our graduates work in diverse engineering companies such as the NHS, Drager Safety, Gates Power, Rolls Royce, The Reece Group, Spincraft, Quick Hydraulics, Transmission Dynamics and many more. Academic progression is available through an appropriate Masters Degree.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
