Project

One of the key features of the course is a twenty-four week engineering or management project. This may take the form of a placement in industry or commerce, which begin immediately after the end of the third year exams. In this stage, students undertake a project that is of value to the organization wherein they are placed. During the employment, students are supervised by a work-based supervisor and an academic tutor.

In the first year, the course work is divided between lectures in engineering science, college tutorials and engineering science practical classes. In the second and third years, there is similar pattern but in this case courses in economics and management are also followed and there is a corresponding increase in the tutorials.

After completing the third year, students get on a twenty-four week engineering or management project. At the end of the management or engineering project, there is a major report submitted for consideration in the exams of forth year.

Entrance Requirement

A-levels: AAA
Advanced Highers: AA/AAB
IB: 38-40 consisting of core points
Or any other equivalent

Candidates are expected to have Mathematics and Physics to A-level, Higher Level, or Advanced Higher in the IB or any other equivalent. Inclusion of Mathematics Mechanics modules is recommended. Further Mathematics may be useful to students who are completing this course; however, it is not necessary for admission.

The Advanced Diploma in Engineering shall be accepted for entry. Candidates attain both the new level '3' in Mathematics and an A-level in Physics for Engineering. Candidates need to present these qualifications as the additional specialist learning component of the diploma.

Application Procedure

As EEM is basically an engineering science course; therefore, the procedures for entry are the same as for Engineering Science. The work of engineering tutors is to act together in the admissions process in order to avoid possibility of differences in procedures between colleges. They make sure that candidates are treated constantly and fairly. Candidates are expected to have enthusiasm for engineering combined with ability in Physics and Mathematics. It is necessary for those who wish to study any engineering course.
