Key Modules

This can take longer if industrial training is difficult to come by. The provision of training can be expensive for employers, because they will incur costs in providing it, and will lose the use of an employee’s service while training is undertaken.

Brunel’s sandwich courses help smooth the way through this stage because the integrated work experience is approved by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. With a large proportion of industrial training already completed, students are well down the road to registration, even before graduation.
