Course summary

Mechanical engineering applies the principles of physics and engineering science to the analysis, design and maintenance of mechanical systems. It defines how and why mechanical systems work, how long they will work for and predict when they will fail.Mechanical Engineers are at the heart of a broad spectrum of UK and international industrial sectors. They design and specify products ranging from heart stents to bullet trains, and work extensively in a large range of differing industrial sectors.Covering an extensive range of disciplines from dynamics and control, to stress analysis heat transfer and thermodynamics, a diverse array of engineering science-based subjects are experienced, providing technical expertise and integration of skill sets. Mechanical engineering takes advantage of parallel engineering disciplines, blending subjects such as materials science, electronics and software engineering with the core subjects.**What's the difference between MEng and BEng?**The MEng Mechanical Engineering degree is aimed at the most ambitious of students who wish to develop high-flying careers within different industrial sectors and to become the future leaders of industry in companies concerned with the engineering understanding and design of mechanical and industrial products. The MEng courses are the preferred route to achieving Chartered Engineer status.The structure of the first two years are common between the BEng and MEng and provide you with engineering science core skills, combined with engineering design and computational modules. The application of engineering science and the solution of industrial problems is a strong theme throughout the courses.The MEng is distinct from the BEng course in the third and fourth academic years, the MEng courses provide enhanced opportunities to study your chosen specialist subjects in depth. In addition, MEng students follow extra modules in practical business management, design and microprocessor control systems, and are offered the chance to study a language.The MEng allows students to deepen their understanding of the role of engineering science and design engineering. Additionally, during the fourth academic year, MEng students from different degree courses are brought together in multi-disciplinary teams for a range of year long projects, to solve challenging industrially based problems at a number of different host companies.
