Our part-time Manufacturing Engineering degree is a flexible way to acquire technical proficiency in manufacturing engineering.
It will suit you if you already have relevant work experience and want to develop your skills, or if you’re thinking of pursuing a career in engineering.
As a student at ARU Peterborough, you’ll master the fundamentals and technical concepts that underpin manufacturing engineering, and work with a local company on a real-life engineering issue. What’s more, you can attain a full honours degree while you work.
From day one, you’ll get hands-on with practical activities in our specialist workshops. But you’ll also hone your understanding of the theory behind the practice, as well as your creative problem-solving skills.
In your final year, you’ll undertake an individual project, where you’ll work directly with employers in the region’s manufacturing sector to tackle a genuine engineering problem.
If you’re already working in the industry, our BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Engineering course will help you develop skills in product design and manufacture and achieve your goals in this sector.
Meanwhile, if you’re thinking of pursuing a career in manufacturing, this is a chance to acquire the theoretical and practical skills you need to succeed. You’ll engage with professionals and industry stakeholders and get a real feel for the workplace.

As a BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Engineering graduate, you’ll be well-equipped to progress into positions of responsibility, or further programmes of specialised study or research.
Manufacturing engineers are employed in a wide range of engineering, educational and commercial organisations. They primarily support the activities involved in bringing design programmes into manufacture.
As a BEng (Hons) Manufacturing Engineering graduate, you’re likely to find yourself working closely with other engineers, functions, and managers. Your advanced manufacturing and project management skills will be pivotal to the launch planning and smooth delivery of exciting new products, on time, on cost and to the right quality.
Our free Employability Service will help you take practical steps to follow your chosen career path, secure jobs, and work experience, or even start your own business.
Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us. You might decide to stay at ARU with postgraduate courses on the horizon for ARU Peterborough. You could also study for a Masters such as MSc Engineering Management at ARU in Chelmsford.
Informed by employers, our courses support an integrated approach to employability. You’ll have opportunities to develop the skills and abilities they are looking for and gain a deeper understanding of how your academic learning relates to the world of work through Live Briefs and Ruskin Modules.
