Course enquiry form
This bridging course is designed to provide you with a solid foundation through a series of modules ranging from Thermofluids to Engineering Principles as well as providing a good grounding in Mathematics. It combines a strong basis for support in engineering techniques to provide a complementary blend of skills required to solve mechanical engineering problems in a wide variety of fields, such as the traditional energy and renewable energy, manufacturing and transport sectors.
This course is intended to meet the needs of the engineering student or employees and will ensure that you meet the requirements of future academic studies, especially if you have not studied for a long time.
This is a short online course that will enable you to meet your specific needs or interests within the engineering disciplines and provide you with the entry requirement needed to join other College Engineering courses.
The course can be started anytime throughout the academic year and you will study at your own pace
The cost of the course is £175
