Mechanical Engineering at University of Bristol - UCAS

Course summary

This course is well-balanced, covering a wide range of topics in engineering science and engineering practice. The course is designed to educate the next generation of mechanical engineers to have a positive impact on our society across the 21st century. Our curriculum embeds a diverse set of professional engineering and management skills spanning four core areas:

  • design and manufacture
  • dynamics and control
  • materials
  • energy and fluid flow.
All Mechanical Engineering students share a common curriculum in the first two years, covering the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering. Teaching is delivered via lectures, seminars, laboratories, design classes and short projects in modelling and manufacturing. In your third year, you will apply the principles you have learnt to real, complex engineering applications. A major element is the open-ended individual research project, which requires independent and creative thinking.
