Engineering & Technology Board (2009) 

Swansea Metropolitan University and Glyndwr University offer a unique opportunity for experienced and skilled people, already working in large companies and SME’s, to gain access to a part-time degree in engineering.

This project provides engineering-based businesses with the opportunity to develop a workforce with the high-level skills needed to benefit from rapidly changing technology across a number of engineering sectors.

Intensive development in engineering science and mathematics, coupled with recognition of existing skills and knowledge by APL (accreditation of prior learning) enables employees to gain a University of Wales BEng honours degree by part-time, fast-track study. Programmes offered are:

* BEng (Hons) Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering

* BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Systems Engineering

* BEng (Hons) Materials Engineering

Hosted by Swansea Metropolitan University (SMU) in South Wales and Glyndŵr University in North Wales, programmes will start in September.
