Course summary

About the course

This degree will enable you to lead multidisciplinary teams in the development of complex systems, including sustainable power generation, powertrains for automotive vehicles, and jet engines for aircraft propulsion. The placement year also gives you the chance to get real work experience for a year in industry, while still being supported by Sussex.

We undertake world-class research, which enriches your teaching. Our Dynamics, Control and Vehicle Research Group and the Thermo-Fluid Mechanics Research Centre, develop innovative concepts in vehicle technology and efficient aero-engines, among other things. You’ll study in our Future Technologies Labs that incorporate computer suites and new automation/robotics facilities. There is a dedicated manufacturing lab with state-of-the-art facilities such as CNC machines and 3-D printers. You'll be able to specialise in subjects such as CAD, computational fluid dynamics through optional modules and work on areas such as control, vibration, tribology, or aerodynamics through project work including Formula Student and Wind-driven car projects.

We have dedicated academic advisors to support you during you time at Sussex and a team of student mentors. You will also be welcomed into our active, student-run engineering societies.

Accreditation

Start your career ahead of the competition with our respected industry accreditation.

MEng or BEng?
