This course is a conversion course which aims to enable students from a technical, maths, computing or other related background to equip themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable the deployment of digital systems into high technology organisations.
Rapid advances in digital technologies and connectivity have changed the landscape of industry to the extent that many believe we are the beginning of a fourth industrial revolution. This digital future will require a new generation of highly computer-literate engineers who can harness the power of digital engineering and take it to the workplace.
Individuals who have the skill set to design, implement and support these new ‘smart’ techniques and systems to improve industrial competitiveness will be highly employable.
- High levels of application and practitioner experience.
- Access to the Institute of Advanced Manufacturing Engineering.
- Delivered by computing and engineering academics with industry backgrounds.
- This course will participate in a new 10-credit module, Professional Development.
- Enhanced ability to solve real-world industry related problems both individually and as part of a team.
How you’ll be assessed
This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which will could vary depending upon the module.
The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes. Assessments may include exams, individual assignments or group work elements.
Professional engineering bodies like the Engineering Council and Engineering UK have predicted that the UK needs to create one million new engineers over the next five years to meet the challenges of digital industry. As a result, there is high employer demand for graduates who can introduce and support the next generation of digital technologies, processes and systems and this conversion course equips students with an ideal skill set.
