Engineering

The School of Engineering at the BACU offers innovative specialty programs in the significant areas of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering (Robotics) among other upcoming programs in Automation & Control Engineering. We have built on our faculty member’s long experience to provide up to date applied education with different delivery models that is of national importance. We provide students a rich immersion in academic study, personal growth, skills expertise and work flexibility. We train students to become the next engineers who can adapt to constantly changing demands and scenarios.

We currently offer two major types of degrees: a 2 year higher diploma degree, HND (with UK Pearson BTEC) and a 4-year Bachelors Program, BEng (Hons) (Level 6-Top-Up with Teeside University, UK).

Pathways & Majors

Higher National Diplomas & Bachelors Programs

  • The UK Pearson Higher National Diploma (HND) is a Level 4 and Level 5 qualification made up of 240 credits. It is usually studied full time over two years, or part time over four years. The Total qualification time = 2,400 hours and the Total guided learning hours = 960 hours.

  • On the other hand, the Bachelors (BEng (Hons) Engineering) degree course is designed to give students in-depth skills & knowledge to build a successful career in Engineering. The course encompasses the core principles of Engineering depending on their chosen pathway/major. With unparalleled flexibility, the course allows students to forge their own pathway after a foundation year 1 to specialist in: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering or other future pathways. It is usually studied full time over four years.

Each pathway offers different program outcomes & objectives however the general aims of all degrees and programs in Engineering are:

  • To provide students with the core knowledge, skills and techniques that all engineers require, irrespective of future specialism, to achieve high performance in the engineering profession.

  • To build a body of specialist knowledge, skills and techniques in order to be successful in a range of careers in engineering at the Technician or Engineer level.

  • To develop the skills necessary for fault finding and problem solving in a timely, professional manner, reflecting on their work and contributing to the development of the process and environment they operate within.

  • To understand the responsibilities of the engineer within society, and work with integrity, regard for cost, sustainability and the rapid rate of change experienced in world class engineering.

  • To provide opportunities for students to enter, or progress in, employment within the engineering sector, or progress to higher education qualifications such as a Masters, or PhD Qualification.

  • To provide opportunities for students to make progress towards achieving internationally recognised registration with a Professional Body regulated by the Engineering Council.

  • To allow flexibility of study and to meet local or specialist needs.
