Course summary

Mechanical engineering is a large, established field of engineering. It covers the design and manufacture of small components and devices right through to large scale items and systems. Also, recent, rapid developments in technology, such as 3D printing, have changed the face of mechanical engineering. To help you to keep up-to-date with these changes and to become a mechanical engineer of the future, we work closely with industry to ensure you are as well-prepared as possible for a career in this exciting and rewarding industry. Our Mechanical Engineering courses are highly practical and use real examples and projects from industry. On this course you’ll be guided how to analyse and solve mechanical engineering problems by producing your own creative and innovative solutions using the latest technology. Why study Mechanical Engineering at Nottingham Trent University? • We’re one of the top universities for offering placements. Our courses offer the opportunity to apply for a placement in the UK or abroad, giving you the real-life experience employers are looking for. • We have inspiring learning environments. You will study in our new Engineering building - containing all the latest equipment and facilities you'll encounter as a professional engineer. Using our 3D bio-printers and brain-computer interface (BCI) systems, you will develop the skills employers are looking for. Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer. This course is recognised by CDIO, a framework that has a project based learning approach. This framework stresses engineering fundamentals set in the context of Conceiving — Designing — Implementing — Operating (CDIO) real-world systems and products. The framework is dedicated to providing students with their initial grounding in engineering through live projects.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

A lower offer may be made based on a range of factors, including your background (such as where you live and the school or college you attended), your experiences and individual circumstances (you may have been in care, for example). This is called a contextual offer and we get data from UCAS to make these decisions. NTU offers a student experience like no other, and this approach helps us to find students who have the potential to succeed here, but may have faced barriers that can make it more difficult to access university. We also consider equivalent qualifications and combinations. Please contact Nottingham Trent University Admissions team for further information.
