Course summary

This programme you will engineer a better future. Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), our Mechanical Engineering degree can help you gain chartered status, as well as equipping you with a range of skills. You will engage in independent study and systematic enquiry at an advanced level, developing new skills and becoming capable of undertaking mechanical engineering tasks using the latest technologies.You'll also work on industry-standard complex analytical tools such as Matlab/Simulink, CATIA, Ansys and ADAMS Mechanisms.

You will work collaboratively with tutors, practitioners, theorists and designers, equipping you with everything you need to launch your career. In the UK, companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, BMW and Honda require a constant supply of highly-skilled engineers with the kind of fully-rounded experience which our course will give you. In addition to further academic research opportunities, career prospects are expected to keep pace with the rapid advances in computer aided methods and intelligent technologies, hence, there is expected to be continuing demand for competent, versatile postgraduates who can design and implement innovative solutions for industry.

You will acquire knowledge and understanding of the subject through formal lectures, tutor-led seminars and practical activities, as well as a range of independent learning activities. The course structure emphasises guided, self-directed and student-centred learning with a progressively increasing independence of approach, thought and process. Lectures will introduce themes, theories and concepts, which are further explored in seminars. You will benefit from technology-enhanced learning, where appropriate, through online resources, discussion forums and other activities. You will consult advanced textbooks, together with professional material and journal articles, in order to ensure that you develop a critical understanding of work at the forefront of your discipline.

There are many challenging and rewarding career opportunities for practitioners able to operate at a senior level in the mechanical, automotive, aeronautical and offshore engineering industries. Never has the need been greater for highly skilled, innovative engineers.

Opportunity: Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market. It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles.
