The published course and module descriptions were accurate when first published and remain the basis of the course, but the University has had to modify some course and module content in response to government restrictions and social distancing requirements. In the event of changes made to the government advice and social distancing rules by national or local government, the University may need to make further alterations to the published course content. Detailed information on the changes will be sent to every student on confirmation in August to ensure you have all the information before you come to Oxford Brookes.

Overview

This Foundation Degree in Manufacturing Engineering has been developed by Oxford Brookes University in response to the engineering industry’s increasing demand for employees with specific skills and knowledge in both engineering and the manufacturing process. 

On this course, you will learn how to apply current technology to existing products & designs as well as learn to develop new designs yourself. You will develop your knowledge and understanding of key engineering principles and the skills necessary to communicate them to others and develop them into finished products that meet customer expectations and agreed specifications. 

You will cover all aspects of the manufacturing process; from design to engineering science & applications, analytical & mathematical techniques, environmental considerations & sustainability, systems, management and economic factors in relation to Mechanical Engineering.

Please note, this course will not be offered in 2021 at​ Solihull College.
