Course summary

**Mechanical engineering is a combination of science, maths and computing. The skills you will learn are highly sought after by employers. By studying mechanical engineering you can look forward to good job prospects and a varied and fulfilling career.**Hull has an excellent reputation for teaching Mechanical Engineering. We’re ranked #3 in the UK for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2020.In your first year, we’ll give you the knowledge and core engineering skills you’ll need throughout your time at university and beyond - CAD, programming and control and thermo fluids are just a few of the areas you’ll cover.We treat you as a trainee engineer. By the time you graduate, you’ll have gained a broad knowledge base and innovative problem-solving skills which you can then apply to a range of mechanical engineering-related industries: automotive, aerospace, energy and medical devices, to name just a few.Transferable skills - teamwork, problem solving, presentations skills and report writing - are embedded in the programme. The modules you’ll study encourage project-based learning. You’ll get the chance to manufacture and test your concepts. In your first and second years, you will take part in the Global Challenge modules, an enjoyable group exercise where you are set engineering challenges to solve.Many of our students take the opportunity to spend a year in industry as part of their degree, gaining valuable experience and contacts which will help them in their careers. You could be working for some of the biggest employers in the country. Companies such as RB (formerly Reckitt Benckiser), Airbus, Virgin Media, IBM, BMW Group, Siemens, Microsoft and Smith & Nephew.But it’s not all study and work - there are lots of extra-curricular activities for you to get involved with as well. Become part of our Formula Student team and you could be building a single seater racing car and competing against other students at Silverstone. There’s a robotics society and you’ll have access to our state-of-the-art FabLab, packed with 3D printers on which to build you prototypes.Our courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. That means you will already be on the pathway to Chartered Engineer status. Accreditation also shows employers that you have studied on a programme that meets globally recognised standards for engineering graduates.**Official Team GB partners**Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB?
