What you will study

Alongside core modules, you will study subject-specific modules that will equip you with a foundation of knowledge for your chosen field of study.

Modules you will study

This module will equip students with the ability to take fundamental engineering concepts to the next level to ensure that they can perform effectively on a Master’s course. It will examine mechatronics – the integration of mechanical, electronic and computing sub-systems – and provide an opportunity to demonstrate learned skills by completing a design project a brief set by the Leicester International Pathway College. Students will study real-life applications of mechatronics in practice and the crucial role it plays in the disciplines of product design, machine design and process design. The role of microprocessors in managing essential systems is examined in depth along with programming.

Students will be given the opportunity to demonstrate academic ability and practical skills by completing a major project as part of the course. It will be completed over several weeks and students will have individual tutor support throughout. Students will be expected to complete a substantial piece of research or product development work on an engineering topic chosen in consultation with tutors. The topic will involve formulating problems, conducting literature reviews and evaluating information. Successful completion of this module will equip you to progress onto the masters at DMU. You will be expected to present your work to the group to build presentation and communication skills.

Upon successful completion of the Pre-Master’s (Stage 1), you will continue onto stage 2 of your chosen IIM degree at DMU.

I have a lot of international friends here at BUIC, and I’ve learnt so much from them. There is always a lot to do together both on and off-campus.

I would recommend UGIC because it is based on the main University of Greenwich campus, a cosmopolitan university. At UGIC, there are students from all around the world, and I've made a lot of friends from exciting places."

Gozel Turkmenistan, University of Greenwich International College (UGIC)

I think one of the main reasons the IIM (pre-masters) has been so helpful is because the staff are so supportive and are always able to help me. Whether it is understanding a module or finding out how to sort accommodation, they will help you with everything. I’ve enjoyed studying at Bangor, the people are friendly, and the environment is also really peaceful and safe. It’s given me the best opportunity to succeed in my studies here in the UK.
