Course summary

Overview

Maximise your employment opportunities on this course, which responds to the UK engineering skills gap and the global demand for multiskilled engineers by providing industry-relevant content, placement opportunities and input from research-active teaching staff. This means our graduates are equipped to work at the forefront of this exciting industry in roles responsible for designing and developing the world around us.

You will grow your skills across core engineering disciplines by studying modules such as Advanced Solid Mechanics and Advanced Thermodynamics, and by choosing from a range of optional modules, including Resource Efficient Design, Robotics and Digital Manufacturing. You will be supported by our academics and technicians with your individual project, a substantial piece of work focused on your specific research interests.

In addition, you will learn about the environmental impact of human activities and energy consumption, as well as the role of the mechanical engineer in seeking solutions to the immediate needs of society. The course builds your transferable skills by giving you an insight into the engineering business environment and by broadening your understanding of other engineering disciplines.

Our graduates are working as engineers in design, development, research and manufacturing roles for companies including BMW, Siemens and Ricardo.
