Course summary

Integrate mechanical, electrical and software skills to develop innovative products. You’ll be equipped for a career as a multidisciplinary design engineer. Our course is for creative engineers who want to design and develop products, machines, and systems. You’ll explore how engineering and design can work together to create new, innovative products to improve lives and respond to the challenges the world faces now and in the future. To do this, you’ll combine engineering studies with learning transferable skills such as complex problem solving and critical thinking. And you’ll think about the wider factors that professional engineers must consider throughout their careers such as ethics, the environment, sustainability, and inclusivity. Our course introduces you to a broad range of topics including systems theory, design integration, information technology, social science and business. In your first two years, you’ll learn core engineering principles and gain confidence in your technical skills with practical work. 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. As your practical knowledge grows, you'll focus on how you can use it in creative design and innovation. At Bath, studio-based learning, and Design-Make-Test (DMT) cycles form a key part of your studies and are what set this course apart from many other mechanical engineering degrees. This, along with practical project work, give you the chance to put theory into practice and deliver design solutions to technical problems.
