Course summary

Mechanical engineers are vital in today’s modern world. They design, manufacture and operate a huge range of products, processes and services. From high-performance race cars through to lifesaving medical equipment, from railways to environmentally sustainable technology, none of this would be possible without mechanical engineers. So if you’re hoping for a career that puts you right at the heart of technological developments effecting all of society, this course could be the perfect start to change the world we live in. Successfully completing the MEng course allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject than the BEng course. It also means that you graduate with a Postgraduate level qualification, which can give you an advantage in the job market. This STEM course is designed to give you a thorough understanding in the principles and fundamentals of mechanical engineering. You’ll get involved in practical work, projects and problem-solving too. We’ll cover a range of topics within the subject, including mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and materials. You’ll be supported in developing your understanding of the value of mechanical engineering in many sectors, including: * Power generation * Manufacturing and process industries * Transport systems, for example, road, rail, air and marine * Bio-medical * Aerospace * Product design and development * Engineering services We want to help you go on to become a leader in your chosen field. So during the final year of your integrated Master’s we’ll study modules relating to management. We take a broader view of the commercial aspects of the industry, and study finance for managers. We’ll also explore advanced analytical skills and give you the option to take a module in either new product development or dimensional measurement. It’s all about encouraging you to think strategically and develop your leadership skills. While you’re studying we’ll aim to give you as much real-world experience as possible. You’ll be able to choose a year-long placement, which could give you some great experience in the industry, and help build up your contacts too, plus your Final Year has been designed to help you gain the confidence you need to become a leader in this vital area. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national competitions like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student,UAS and the Railway Challenge (or comparable design and build team projects). In addition, our Institute of Railway Research (IRR) within our Department of Engineering have been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for ‘innovative research in railway engineering to improve safety and efficiency through technological developments'. This is one of the most coveted distinctions in UK Higher Education. Professional links and accreditation: This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) (http://www.imeche.org/). This means it fully meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status (CEng). The MEng qualification is regarded as the professional benchmark for engineers. An extension to the BEng award, it gives those who show potential the opportunity to study Master’s level modules and attain an enhanced undergraduate award which meets the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. The IMechE is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering community and IMechE accreditation is recognised around the world as an indicator of quality. Our relationship with the IMechE means that they feel our course content is relevant to the needs of industry, which could give you a potential advantage when looking for a job as employers may ask for graduates with accredited degrees.
