Course summary

Overview

The department specialises in applying advanced principles of engineering science – experimental, computational and theoretical – to generate new knowledge and introduce innovative solutions to a diverse range of challenges. From biomedical systems to the marine environment, from clean and low carbon power systems to pioneering materials and manufacturing, and in many other fields, we propose ground-breaking technologies that change the world.

Careers

A research degree in Mechanical Engineering opens the door to many rewarding careers, not just in engineering. You are likely to find employment in a wide range of industries and organisations, both at home and abroad. Recent graduates have entered professional occupations in the UK and overseas with leading industrial and shipping companies (e.g. Technip UK Ltd, DNV, Mahle Powertrain Ltd), the automotive industry (e.g. Ford, Jaguar, Delphi Diesel Systems), technical consultancies and government agencies. Others have pursued postdoctoral research and lectureships at UK and overseas institutions (e.g. UCL, University of Cambridge, University of Bristol).

Employability

Our research projects are often industry sponsored and have direct practical relevance, which means many students will secure employment before graduating. Because we collaborate with other departments and universities and engage in a wild range of multi-disciplinary research activities you will often be jointly trained by a range of experts, making you highly attractive to an employer. Research graduates in engineering with a good analytical ability are in high demand and our graduates have little difficulty in gaining employment across many industrial sectors.
