Unlock your creative potential and build technical expertise with a degree in Mechanical Engineering that will help you become a highly skilled, work-ready graduate. If you want to work at the cutting-edge of engineering, developing and designing the components and machinery used in manufacturing, construction and other industries, then this is the course for you. You will use the pioneering CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) approach to problem solve mechanical engineering issues. The CDIO approach is an international engineering education model, developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It allows you to learn in a practical, hands-on way to find creative, evaluated solutions to industry related engineering challenges. We are one of the only handful of universities in the UK to offer CDIO. It offers you real-world application of science, technology and maths where you'll take genuine problems proposed by the industry and apply your practical skills and technical knowledge to solve them, working with engineering experts along the way. Mechanical engineers make a vital contribution to a variety of industries by developing, implementing and maintaining engineering solutions that ensure products are manufactured efficiently and to customer’s quality requirements. Our hands-on learning both on campus and online will prepare you to enter an engineering career with varied and exciting prospects. You could be involved in finding solutions to automate packaging processes for your favourite biscuits or using energy as efficiently as possible throughout a building. Wherever the course leads you, you'll be equipped with the skills you need to work as a mechanical engineer ensuring systems meet demand, are reliable, integrated and operate smoothly. You will gain key employability skills and be encouraged to take up placements, helping you to go straight into employment upon completion of your studies. On completion of the course you'll be skilled in professional engineering practice and prepared to work as an effective, industry-ready engineer who is on track to become an Incorporated Engineer. Specialist facilities Our Verena Holmes building is home to the engineering workshop, mechatronics lab, makerspace and mechanical physics lab, complete with industry standard equipment. Location This course is run at our Canterbury Campus in Kent. Canterbury is just 50 miles south-east of London and less than an hour by high-speed train from St Pancras. Located on a UNESCO World Heritage Site the campus offers state-of-the-art buildings, right in the centre of a vibrant and world-famous cathedral city. You’ll benefit from a campus with excellent learning and teaching resources, music venues, a superb sports centre, a well-stocked bookshop and plenty of coffee bars and places to eat. A short walk away is Augustine House our award-winning library and home to a vast range of learning resources and student support teams.
