Course summary

This course is ideal if you're interested in product design, process design, and system analysis or modelling. If you want to model mechanical engineering systems, predict system behaviour and understand manufacturing processes - including how they influence design - completing our Mechanical Engineering degree to BEng (Hons) or MEng (Integrated Masters) level could be for you. Both courses are also ideal if you’re interested in product design, process design, system analysis or modelling, as they focus on key engineering skills through the use of examples and problem-based learning. The BEng (Hons) degree partially satisfies the educational requirements for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). The MEng integrated Masters Degree lets you benefit from an additional year of advanced specialist modules, together with a multidisciplinary group project and an industrial-based project. If you choose to complete one of our sandwich courses with a work placement between the second and final years of the course, our placement staff will work with you to identify a suitable location for your work placement. To provide a solid base for your learning, in Year 1, you’ll develop the skills and techniques that are used by all engineers and are taught right across our entire Engineering programme. In Years 2 and 3, your study will focus on the mechanical design process, materials, mechanical and fluid systems, business and programming. Your final year of study will also include a major individual project, which may be inspired by your employment. Calling on your specialist knowledge, and supported by underpinning modules, your project will provide an opportunity for you to be able to consider the legal, ethical and environmental impact of engineering decisions on society. The year will also provide the opportunity to present your work to potential employers at GradEX, our graduate exhibition, and to participate in local and cross-University events. Graduates from our Mechanical Engineering degrees work in a wide variety of roles, for employers including: Alstom, eON, Network Rail, Bombardier, Rolls Royce, Bentley, AstraZeneca, Jaguar Land Rover, British Salt, Norgren, ABB and Siemens. Roles include designing reactor safety systems for nuclear-powered submarines, project managing new production lines in the pharmaceutical industry, optimising engine ventilation and cooling systems, designing diesel power generation units and conducting renewable fuel substitution tests.
