Entry Criteria

  • You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant subject.We are happy to consider equivalent qualifications from anywhere in the world.
  • If English is not your first language an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent when you start the course is essential. English Language tuition, delivered by our British Council accredited Centre for English Language Learning, is available both before and throughout the course if you need it.
  • If you have no formal academic qualifications but do have extensive industry experience we will consider your application on an individual basis.

International students must also have a valid ATAS certificate to study at DMU to enrol on the course.

 

Contact And Learning Hours
You will normally attend four hours of timetabled taught sessions each week for each module undertaken during term time; for full-time study this would be 16 hours per week during term time. You can expect to also undertake around 24 further hours of independent study and assignments as required per week.

The modules are delivered through a mixture of lectures, tutorials and laboratories. This ensures a good balance between theory and practice so that real engineering problems are better understood through an underpinning of strong theoretical and analytical knowledge translated into practical skills.
