Course summary

A mechanical engineering degree will provide you with the flexibility to be employed in any industrial company irrespective of their product range. Mechanical engineers are involved in producing innovative designs, using the latest materials and Computer Aided Engineering systems to meet ever-increasing expectations. With our excellent teaching standards and facilities, the university has a strong track record of providing industry with these highly skilled professionals. This course shares some modules with both the BEng Aerospace Systems Engineering and BEng Automotive Engineering degrees, but gives you the flexibility to gain employment across a broader range of industries, and is the first step towards gaining chartered engineer status. You will learn about the design process, through both group design and detail design work, and will have the opportunity to work on the Class 200 Formula Student car. In year 3 you have the chance to work for an engineering company on placement. In year 4 you have the option of covering either manufacturing or the rapidly growing field of micro-electrical-mechanical systems (MEMS). Project work, both in teams on design and individually on a topic of special interest, encourages you to develop valuable practical, interpersonal and communication skills. You also have the opportunity to work on the University's entry to the Formula Student competition. In your final year you will study at Masters level, deepening your knowledge and understanding of engineering as well as developing your business and management skills. The Team Project is multidisciplinary and involves applying your skills to solve an unusual and challenging problem.
