Course summary

Develop core knowledge of systems engineering across both mechanical and electrical engineering to boost your career prospects in industry. Our course gives you a unique chance to balance an understanding of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering sciences with a focus on systems engineering. You’ll develop a comprehensive knowledge of mechanics, materials, electrical and electronic systems and circuits. And you’ll explore the theory and practice of the latest mechanical and electrical techniques. You’ll apply your knowledge in projects and laboratory work where you’ll design and develop products and systems. You’ll also gain key professional skills such as group working, project management and individual project work, so that you are well prepared to lead in your future industrial or research career.   From your first day, we encourage you to develop and use your problem-solving skills and creativity. We do this by challenging you to think about ways to address relevant and real problems we face as a society now and in the future. This includes thinking about issues such as sustainability and ethics, and your role as an engineer in making the world a better place. Group and individual projects are a chance to explore creative approaches to engineering problems. You could design and build robotics, medical devices or sports and games equipment. The first two years of this course are the same for both MEng and BEng degrees. This allows you to move between the two, as well as decide if you want to go on placement up until the end of your second year. Teaching You’ll learn from academics with expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering across a wide range of areas. These include biomechanics, tomography, automotive engineering, and advanced sensors. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Facilities Our department has sophisticated teaching, project and fabrication laboratories that you’ll use during your degree. These include teaching laboratories, power and robotics laboratories, workshop and printed circuit board (PCB) production facilities, dedicated project workspaces and computer laboratories. You will also have access to laboratories, design studios and facilities in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
