Course summary

This is a four-year version of our popular BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering course, with an integrated foundation year. Learn a range of diverse subjects from thermodynamics, design and the mechanics of machines, to state-of-the-art technological solutions such as finite element analysis, computer-aided design (CAD) and computational fluid dynamics. Graduate with a choice of career options in design, process, manufacturing and management..In the first year – the foundation year – you will study five modules: Engineering Practice; Essential Study Skills; Foundation Project; Foundations of Engineering; and Mathematics for Engineering and Computing. After completion of this foundation year, you will then move onto the Mechanical honours degree course. Mechanical Engineering is the broadest of all engineering disciplines. This course covers topics such as electrical principles, mechanics, manufacturing and materials, microprocessors and thermofluids.You are encouraged to apply to undertake a year-long placement between the second and final years, although it is not compulsory. Past students have secured paid placement with companies such as Jaguar, Nissan, GlaxoSmithKline, Assystem, Cummins Engines, Delphi Powertrain Systems and Tata Steel.Staff use their real-world experience to enhance the already excellent teaching and support, which is enriched by the University’s leading-edge research into areas such as manufacturing systems and advanced maintenance.
