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. Practical project work is central to your study experience. In your final year, you'll get the chance to put theory into practice with a semester-long, full-time individual projects. You can also join one of our teams to take part in international competitions such as Formula Student or the Shell Eco Marathon. You don't need to worry if you haven't made your mind up about whether to study a BEng or MEng yet. Once you're here at Bath, you'll have until the end of your second year to move between any of our BEng and MEng courses. We are invested in helping you get the most out of your learning experience. You’ll learn from academics with expertise in mechanical engineering and established links with industry. They have knowledge in design, manufacture, biomechanics, materials, automotive and aerospace. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.

GCSE requirements: GCSE English Language or Literature grade 4 or C (or equivalent from English language 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.
