Combine numeracy with detailed subject knowledge and initiative to solve complex engineering problems that improve the world we live in. Our course teaches you how to use physical science, mathematics and computing to assess engineering systems. You'll combine this with creative innovation, and a focus on design and business to help give you the well-rounded set of skills professional engineers need. At Bath, we take pride in playing a part in developing our students to not only fulfil their potential but also to prepare them for the challenges engineers face in the world beyond university. With this in mind, our course complements your engineering knowledge with transferable skills like complex problem solving and critical thinking. And it allows you to reflect on wider issues that impact engineering such as ethics, sustainability and environmental awareness. All our mechanical engineering courses have the same structure in the first two years of study so you can move between any of our BEng and MEng courses up to the end of your second year. Practical project work is central to your study experience. Group and individual projects are a chance for you to put theory into practice and gain experience in engineering enterprise management. You can join one of our teams to take part in international competitions such as Formula Student or the Shell Eco Marathon. A selection of advanced optional units in your third and final years let you choose where you want to specialise. This, followed by an individual project, allows you to develop and apply your knowledge in areas that interest you most.

Points of entry
The following entry points are available for this course:
- Year 1
GCSE requirements: GCSE English grade C or 4 (or equivalent from category C). GCSE grades are an important part of selection for this course and we typically expect students to have a good number of GCSEs at grade 7-9 or A-A*. Your GCSE grades in Mathematics and Physics are particularly important and we typically expect grade 8-9 in at least one of these subjects. Your GCSE grades will be carefully considered as part of our contextual admissions process and depending on your circumstances, we may be able to consider you with GCSE grades of mostly 6 or B.
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
