About FdEng Engineering (Manufacturing Management) at Bournemouth University

 This is part-time course at Bournemouth & Poole College and it is a nationally recognised qualification for higher technician engineers in industry, and has been designed to be relevant to the needs of employment in the fields of Production, Manufacturing Engineering and Management. Students are typically employed in or aspire to employment in areas such as planning, estimating, quality or workshop supervision. This qualification builds on the principles covered in the BTEC National Diploma course but is equally suitable for A Level students or mature students with relevant industrial experience wishing to develop their career in Manufacturing.

As a student on this part-time course you will have the benefits of using Bournemouth & Poole College’s excellent facilities including modern rapid prototyping facilities. There are also a number of state-of-the-art CAD/CAM suites available and a refurbished Materials Laboratory. Please contact the College for details about their open days.

During the first year, you will use CAD software to produce both two-dimensional drawings and three-dimensional models, undertake design simulations and run stress analysis. You will also be introduced to the capabilities of rapid manufacture to produce physical models of your designs and use a CAM package to develop and simulate a milled product. In your first year, you will study manufacturing process technology and the management of the production resources incorporating the latest techniques of the organisation of the work area. You will also study the types of system available and their capabilities in terms of the rapid introduction of products to a competitive marketplace.

During your second year, automated manufacture is developed further with the study of robotics and techniques for the management of quality are also studied. A company-relevant major project is undertaken which is directly linked to your CPD as required by the IED. Students are also registered with the IED as student members and completion of the course enables partial Incorporated Engineers registration. For suitable candidates there is opportunity to undertake NVQ Level 4 in Engineering Leadership in conjunction with this course as part of a Higher Apprenticeship programme with their employer.
