Course SummaryThis Level 6 course is a one-year full-time, or two-year part-time, ‘top up’ programme for those who have achieved a Pass or higher on the Foundation Degree in Automotive and Motorsport Engineering Technology. Designed for students wishing to progress their studies and earn an Honours degree, the programme looks to further expand students' knowledge base with a focus on sustainability and enhanced design skills. It also gives students the opportunity to pursue postgraduate qualifications which are often industry-supported at this level as well as ensuring that graduates are well-placed to compete with similarly qualified candidates for some of the best jobs in the industry. , Entry RequirementsYou must have successfully completed the Foundation Degree in Automotive and Motorsport Engineering Technology, validated by Lancaster University, with Blackpool and The Fylde College to apply to this course. Course Detail Like our Foundation Degree programme, this course has been designed with input from employers both locally and nationally to ensure that the skills gap in the industry is being met by our graduates. Studied over one or two years either full- or part-time, this Top-Up degree builds on the existing knowledge developed in the Foundation Degree and includes work on sustainability within the industry together with a dissertation module allowing students to develop their own research interests. Qualification Obtained BEng Hons (top-up) Automotive and Motorsport Engineering Technology Please note: Where wearing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is a mandatory requirement of the course, it is the responsibility of the learner to ensure that they are able to wear such equipment.

Qualification ObtainedBEng Hons (top-up) Automotive and Motorsport Engineering Technology Industry Placement and Field TripsIndustry Placement and Field Trips There is no formal requirement for students to undertake a work placement within this Honours top-up programme. Teaching, learning and assessment methods however, incorporate current industry trends, practices and emerging technologies and may include real-world scenarios or live assessment briefs where appropriate. Learning and Teaching Methods Scheduled Learning Scheduled time relates to the time you spend in directed study with the guidance and support of our academic tutors. Scheduled learning can take a variety of forms and will vary from one course to the next, but may include lectures, seminars, tutorials, project supervision, demonstrations, studio or workshop time, fieldwork and external visits. Independent Study Higher education courses rely on students undertaking work outside of formal, scheduled sessions and this is generally categorised as independent study. Independent study might include preparation for scheduled sessions, follow-up work, wider reading or practice, completion of assessment tasks and revision. Placement Many of the degree programmes at B&FC incorporate opportunities for work placements to provide you with the opportunity to link your studies to relevant professional practice in a real work environment. Our programme teams are able to offer support in securing an appropriate work placement where it forms part of your programme, and will work closely with you during the placement to ensure that the opportunity allows you to develop personally, professionally and academically. Expert Tutors All staff involved in the delivery of higher education courses within the College are approved to teach the subjects and modules they deliver. The approval process ensures that staff delivering a given programme are appropriately qualified and, where appropriate, possess relevant technical and industrial experience and professional practice.
