Course summary


This is a flexible course, with many options to add even more value to your studies. The BEng Mechanical Engineering is available to study full-time or part-time, with teaching delivered over multiple days each week. If you would prefer day-release study, the BSc Engineering offers this option.

You can study for three years to achieve the BEng, and you can add an additional year in industrial placement between the second and third year, so that you can put your studies to practice.

If you choose to, you can then study for a further year to achieve the award of MEng, an integrated postgraduate stage, giving you a more in-depth experience of engineering principles and the opportunity to showcase all that you have learned in a substantial group research project.

We will support you to achieve your career and study ambitions, which is why if you complete our Employability Plus Gold programme or Changemaker Gold certificate alongside your studies and if you haven’t secured full-time employment 12 months after graduating we will secure a three - six month paid internship for you, or support you into postgraduate study.


Our Mechanical Engineering degree has been developed to ensure that you gain the skills and knowledge necessary to excel in your career and drive the industry forward. Within this course you will study mechanical engineering principles, mechanical design and simulation, materials science, control systems, thermo-fluids, corrosion and condition monitoring, as well as investigating sustainability and innovation within the industry and business practice.


This degree has been accredited by IMechE under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.


  • You will benefit from industry workshops, innovative laboratories and computer-aided design suites.
  • Our engineering programmes have strong industry focus, aiming to build upon students’ knowledge and experience to prepare them for employment or further study.
  • Longstanding links with the Northants Engineering Training Partnership (NETP) means that you will have the opportunity to do paid work placements as part of your degree and you will be introduced to key industrial contacts before you’ve even graduated.
  • Possibility of an industrial based final year project.
  • IMechE accredited.
