The Engineering (Honours) course at The Open University UK covers the techniques, concepts and knowledge required by professional engineers. You’ll begin by exploring the fundamentals of this creative and analytical subject, using a range of methods underpinned by science and mathematics. Later, you’ll choose one of six areas in which to specialise.
Key features of the course
- Fulfils the Engineering Council’s educational requirements for Incorporated Engineer status under UK-SPEC
- Incorporates individual and team-based projects, plus two face-to-face residential schools
- Includes the compilation of a personal and professional development plan
- Allows you to move to our Master of Engineering if your aspirations change, even after you’ve started.
Skills for career development
The areas of knowledge, competence and skills that this degree develops include: the ability to use specialist knowledge to solve problems creatively; collaborative working and communication skills; project management skills; the ability to turn concepts into reality.
Your study will give you the skills expected of an Incorporated Engineer, in providing solutions to engineering problems. These could involve using existing or developing new technologies and designs; refining production systems; or developing new services.
On graduation, this qualification (combined with the appropriate evidence of professional practice) will enable you to apply (via an appropriate engineering institution) to the Engineering Council for registration as an Incorporated Engineer.
