Newcastle University, in collaboration with Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and Nanyang Polytechnic, is delighted to offer a new programme in Mechanical Engineering. This is a 2 year, full time, programme leading to a Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Engineering. The course has been specially designed to build on the strengths of Singaporean polytechnic education by providing high-quality, internationally recognised, world-class university education to polytechnic graduates from Singapore.
We are pleased to report that our first cohort of students graduated in November 2013. The ceremony was held on Friday 8th November at Nanyang Polytechnic: see the NUIS news item for more information.
Since Autumn 2011 there has been a new and modernised suite of degree programmes delivered in Newcastle, UK, all fully accredited by UK Engineering Institutions, allowing students to specialise in areas including transport, bioengineering and manufacturing. The BEng in Mechanical Design and Manufacturing Engineering will be delivered in both Newcastle and in Singapore. Other programmes will be delivered only in Newcastle at present, but some may be run in Singapore in future years.
Applicants for the BEng programme in Singapore must have a relevant Singapore Polytechnic Diploma, and will undertake two years' study at the SIT premises located on the Nanyang Polytechnic campus, plus a short period of study in Newcastle UK between the two years.
