Mechanical Engineering (with Integrated Foundation Year) at University of Chichester - UCAS

Course summary

Mechanical Engineering is central to our world, from transportation systems to the design of medical scanners, through to multi-billion pound facilities that probe the fundamentals of the universe. Mechanical Engineering applies scientific knowledge to design and build functional systems. Studying Mechanical Engineering BEng. (Hons) at Chichester will give you the scientific foundations, practical skills and techniques to enable you to make a constructive contribution to the world, by designing, building and using mechanical systems. Because Mechanical Engineering is an applied subject, our course is based around applied workshop learning; seminars with demonstrations; practical and lab work and design-build challenges. We don’t do Lectures! The integrated foundation year leads to a range of diverse degrees, it covers broad topics including: physics, mathematics, electronics and computing, and the practical application of these to engineering disciplines through design-build-test challenges. These practical CDIO (conceive-design-implement-operate) tasks offer students an opportunity to work in groups to combine their skills and solve real engineering problems.


Year One (Integrated Foundation Year): Your first year is your foundation year and provides you with a base level of information that you will build upon over the rest of your studies. You will study a broad array of content as you explore fundamental science, mathematics, electronics, computing, design, report writing, and communication skills. Year Two: In your second year, you will explore the key fundamentals of mechanical engineering, as well as computer aided engineering, mathematical principles, and elements of electrical engineering. In your second year you will take part in a team Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) challenge with other Mechanical Engineering students. Year Three: Your third year builds on your previous learning to explore more specialised elements of mechanical engineering including dynamic systems, statics and materials, and advanced mathematical principles. CDIO challenge is an interdisciplinary team challenge where you will work with students from other engineering subjects. Year Four: In your fourth year, you will work as part of group to undertake a final engineering project that will act as a culmination of your studies. Alongside this, you will explore industrially-relevant elements such as renewability and sustainability, as well as understand basic business concepts within a engineering contexts.
