Course summary

In our ever-changing world, mechanical engineers develop new and differing uses for technologies and materials, in order to improve the mechanical operation of equipment and devices used in anything from food and oil production to international construction projects or the design of toys.Ranked 3rd in the UK for the study of Mechanical Engineering (Guardian University Guide 2020), our professionally accredited course gives you the opportunity to qualify first at bachelor and, if you choose to continue, to master’s degree level. It meets the educational requirements of the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC), which sets out the competence and commitment required for registration, so that upon successful completion you can practice eventually as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).We aim to produce graduates with the versatility and depth of understanding to deal with new and unusual challenges in mechanical engineering, alongside the necessary imagination and creativity to innovate.The undergraduate degree will provide you with the opportunity to develop essential knowledge and skills in science, commerce, design, manufacturing and management to help prepare you for a career across a broad range of industries with, for example, major equipment manufacturers, design consultancies or supply-chain companies.As the course progresses, your learning will become more specialised, for example, examining instrumentation and control in Year 2, then thermodynamics and fluid mechanics in Year 3. You will also be able to tailor your course to suit your interests and career aspirations, choosing from a range of optional modules in subjects like finite element analysis or control systems engineering.At master’s level, we will provide you with the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and understanding of the core subjects involved in the application of science, processes, materials, design and management to enable you to solve problems of increasing complexity. You will have the option to progress to a MEng following successful completion of Year 2 (subject to meeting specific grading criteria).**Key Course Benefits*** Access to modern facilities in our High Performance Engineering Centre, which houses a 20% scale model wind tunnel, composites lab, metrology lab, four-pot shaker rig, flow lab, AVL engine test cell, automotive workshop, fatigue and tensile testing (Instron), a full size Harrier Jet, three further simulators, civil engineering specialist testing equipment, a range of CNC machinery and a laser workshop.* Opportunity to participate in field-trips abroad, which have recently included trips to Poland, Bulgaria, China, Belgium and USA (subject to application and additional costs).* Dedicated industrial placement tutor, who can help you with your applications for placements and support you if you choose to spend a year in industry*.
