Course summary

Our course is for engineers who want to apply fundamental mechanical engineering knowledge to the challenges of the automotive industry including areas such as cost, emissions, performance and materials.

Your first two years of study introduce you to the foundations of mechanical engineering to support your understanding of the subject. Using physical science, mathematics and computing, you'll learn how to assess engineering systems. You’ll study vehicle design, manufacturing processes and component analysis in the context of the automotive market. A range of specialist units in your final year allows you to choose where you want to advance your knowledge.

Studying an MEng gives you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work, and it fulfils the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer. You have the flexibility to transfer to any of our five mechanical engineering courses up until the end of your second year. This empowers you to take your degree in a direction that best suits your ambitions.

Placement

A placement can give you first-hand knowledge of working in a commercial or industrial environment and count towards becoming a Chartered Engineer. The professional skills you learn can benefit the rest of your degree and improve your career prospects. It can also be an opportunity to earn a salary during your degree and make industry contacts. Our students have worked at companies such as McLaren Automotive, Williams F1, Red Bull Racing and Jaguar Land Rover.

Careers

Our graduates have many skills that make them attractive to prospective employers, including teamwork, problem solving, creativity and numeracy. They hold specialist and managerial roles in high technology industries in engineering and manufacturing. Many of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities to pursue academic and research careers. Some of our graduates have gone on to work at international companies including Jaguar Land Rover, Airbus, nPower, Proctor & Gamble and Zimmer Biomet.
