The Manufacturing Engineering team are busy preparing for the start of our courses in September 2020.
Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of accredited programmes but here at the University of Sunderland, supported by the IET, we have maintained professional standards with an effective approach to your programme of study, blending face-to-face and online teaching.
Our experience has shown that this method opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from the Engineering academic team and the wider University services available to you.
Key practical and theoretical skills will continue to be taught in our new delivery method. This will include developing specialist knowledge using digital engineering techniques blended with the theory you would be expected to implement in engineering scenarios. This approach will ensure you acquire all the necessary engineering skills, before experiencing the world of industry for the first time. We will be identifying sessions we hope to be completed weekly on campus, to allow you to develop key proficiencies alongside your peers. Theoretical lectures will continue and be delivered online using live conference technology and video content you can review at your convenience.
The Engineering Student Society will launch in September and will be meeting you during the first week to say hello, along with all the teaching team and our amazing technical staff.
In the coming months before commencing your studies please contact your Programme Leaders if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
