Course summary

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you’ve spent much of your life to date taking things apart to see how they work, this course is for you. As a mechanical engineer, you’ll use your knowledge of fundamental engineering principles like mechanics, materials, thermofluids and computer-aided design to analyse and design objects and systems with motion. You’ll graduate with a rounded education that prepares you to take ideas all the way from idea to production and launch. You’ll also develop skills in user needs - vital for anyone working in this field - and business plan development as part of your final year project, which draws together everything you’ve learned on the course.Industrial Placement is a 48 week placement with a company which is assessed by portfolio and contributes to the course outcomes. You are responsible for identifying and winning the placement, but the University supports this via links to industry and training in application and interview skills. Full time students can enroll with Unites Internships, which is open to all final year students and graduates and provide the opportunity for work experience placements within the North West. This provide valuable experience to both UK/EU and overseas alike.Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever and due to the broad and very diverse nature of Mechanical Engineering, a variety of career options are available to you, including careers in aerospace, the automotive industry, biotechnology, computing and electronics, manufacturing, energy conversion, the Ministry of Defence and research development. If you’re interested in the applied scientific and mathematical aspects of the discipline, you can carry on into a career in research and teaching.
