Naturalist?
Naturalist
Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Students are exposed to a wide range of laboratory and practical mechanical engineering tasks that complement the theoretical modules.

During Year 1 of the programme, students undertake a wide range of practical skills including welding, metal fabrication, machining, technical drawing, computing and experimental work. These practical lifelong learning skills are developed further in year 3 of the programme when students undertake an individual project, combining research, design, mechanical development, testing, analysis, presentation and report writing skills.

This three-year full-time programme prepares learners for the Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Mechanical Engineering) degree award. At the start of the third year, learners are offered a choice; Process Plant Technology or Manufacturing Technology
