The course is structured around engineering capabilities graduates require rather than traditional academic sub-disciplines. You will follow a coherent programme of study that allows you to draw in the relevant elements of manufacturing engineering regardless of where in the traditional "map" of the subject they lie.
The Manufacturing Engineering degree is based on Mechanical Engineering fundamentals combined with specialist modules in Automated Production and Advanced Manufacturing. In addition to fundamental elements such as mechanics, materials, CAD/CAE/CAM and operations management, students also develop skills in user needs, business plan development and (at MEng level) social, legal and professional ethics considerations. The BEng project presents an opportunity to integrate learning across the course, while the MEng includes a higher-level project that enables students to demonstrate application of their knowledge at a professional level, and a group project that develops and demonstrates their ability to work within a team. The latter experience that is highly valued in industry.

You can find regulations and policies relating to student life at The University of Central Lancashire on our Student Contract page.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
