Entry requirements

For 2017 entry onwards: applicants require a minimum of 64 UCAS points from the Edexcel Extended Diploma in Engineering, or A Level Maths and Science subject. In line with the widening participation brief, the Institute encourages applications from those who lack formal academic qualifications. All such applicants will be set an appropriate piece of work and a judgement made taking into account their academic potential and relevant experience.

What you will learn

Units Include:
  • Mechanical Principles (Level 5)
  • Mathematics (Level 4)
  • Project (Level 5)
  • Engineering Science (Level 4)
  • Strength of Materials (Level 5)
  • Business Management Techniques (Level 4)
  • Fluid Mechanics (Level 4)
  • CAD (Level 5)
  • Heat Transfer (Level 4)
  • Engineering Design (Level 5)


In addition, practical activities in laboratories and workshops to support the units of study.

Programme Benefits

Upon successful completion of this qualification, graduates will be equipped with the knowledge and skills to pursue a new career, or advance an existing one in the Engineering sector. Engineering careers can begin with work opportunities with small to medium enterprise organisations (those with less than 250 employees) or with national and multi-national organisations. Many also go onto self employment which is usually not possible until a graduate has several years experience. Other graduates will go on to work for large organisations which may comprise roles in engineering management; engineering maintenance and servicing, project management, design engineering, planning or working on large infrastructure projects linked to the engineering and construction industries.


Learning & Teaching Methods

Methods of learning and teaching are designed to support students in becoming active members of a learning community. Students will be expected to work together in an informal environment as well as in formal classes where a culture of dignity, courtesy and mutual respect with staff and their peers is essential. A variety of methods will be used such as lectures, workshops, student led seminars and practical sessions. Integrating a work-based or placement opportunity, students will be visited in the workplace by a member of Institute staff to ensure a positive partnership between the employer mentor and to monitor that learning in the workplace is effective. Workplace learning is designed to support the development of an employable graduate equipped with the attributes, skills and knowledge to progress within a global market.

Equality & Diversity

All of our activities in relation to teaching, safeguarding, training, recruitment, retention and progression are core business areas where we must be mindful of the diverse needs of those we work with. Although the law no longer requires public sector organisations to produce equality schemes, the Grimsby Institute Group has produced an Equality Statement, which is more than mere words, but a statement of our intent.

This statement underpinned by declarations from the leaders of the Grimsby Institute Group include many actions we believe will proactively eliminate all forms of discrimination where they exist and prevent them from occurring in the first instance.

Equality Intent turning into equality action is the future ethos and philosophy of the Grimsby Institute Group and as the principal lead for Equality, Diversity Inclusion & Human Rights the Grimsby Institute Group will demonstrate this commitment in all that they do.
