This course consists of lectures, seminars, project work, and directed activities to promote independent learning along with workshops, and tutorials. Work-based learning is also an important part of the programme and will be linked in with core modules.
The course runs over two semesters per year from September – June. Those on a full-time programme of study will attend college for the equivalent of two days per week over two academic years. Those on a part-time programme will be expected to attend college for the equivalent of one day per week over three academic years. Students can expect to receive their course timetable within two weeks prior to the course start date or during their induction week in September.
Class sizes can vary year to year, but classes will typically have approximately 10 – 25 students.
There is a substantial amount of self-study required in order to be successful on this programme. Each single undergraduate module is 150 hours of effort. Modules presently consist of 45 hours contact time and are delivered using a mixture of lectures, tutorial/seminar sessions and laboratories. A student can expect to undertake an additional 105 hours of independent work per single module (210 for the double-module project).
This is an Oxford Brookes University course that is delivered by Abingdon & Witney College. As a student of both institutions, you have access to both the College and University facilities such as; libraries, sports centres, students union, career and employment services, student and study support.
The aim of this Foundation Degree is to provide a rational, structured and coherent programme of study that offers an alternative pathway to well-motivated and skilled engineers within the region in which Abingdon & Witney College is situated.
This programme intends to provide students, from a wide range of educational backgrounds, with an opportunity for further study including an alternative route for learners who have completed a Level 3 course and wish to gain work experience and study part-time.
The course will also equip learners’ with the broad knowledge and ability to apply current technology to existing products and designs as well as developing new ones. It will enable learners to have a sound understanding of Engineering Principles and the skills necessary to communicate them to others and develop them into finished products that meet customer expectations and agreed specifications.
The course will develop the learner’s ability to reflect on their own work evaluating what worked, what can be improved and how the overall process can be changed for the better. It will also enable learners that are employed to make an immediate professional contribution in their work environment through skills learnt and in particular via a work related project and develop the learners’ skills, personal qualities and attitudes essential for reflective learning and practice leading to successful performance in working life through the integrated, but explicit, curriculum and assessment.
