The University of Strathclyde Engineering Academy offers an alternative route into an Engineering degree. The first year is an enhanced HNC programme which is taught at one of seven partner colleges and allows for a direct transfer into a variety of degree programmes.
After your first year is completed, you may transfer into a variety of degree courses in one of the following departments:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical & Process Engineering
- Civil & Environmental Engineering
- Design, Manufacture, & Engineering Management
- Electronic & Electrical Engineering
- Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering
- Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering
You will be required to have four Highers at BBBB which must include Maths and Physics. Higher Chemistry is also required for entry to Chemical Engineering and for entry to Biomedical Engineering you will need to have Higher Biology or Human biology.
Certain applicants may be eligible for a lower offer, minimum entry requirements are BBCC.
HOW TO APPLY
Applications should be made via UCAS, the UCAS admissions code is oBRT, there is no need to complete a separate application for the HNC programme delivered within the college.
Michael Spiers studied Mechanical Engineering with Materials Engineering via the Engineering Academy, here’s what he had to say:
“I had not achieved what I would have hoped in my Higher Maths and Physics. This was a big blow to my aspirations of studying Mechanical Engineering and the University of Strathclyde as the BEng course stipulated that an A in these subjects was a must. The Engineering Academy presented an alternative route to the highly sought after MAE department at Strathclyde that I could pursue. On top of this, the opportunity to work in industry throughout the degree appealed to me. The Engineering Academy looked like the place to be in terms of transitioning smoothly from full-time education to a career in the sector.”
Michael is now working with GeoSea as an offshore Project Engineer based in Belgium.
