Mechanical Engineering (with Foundation Year) at University of East London - UCAS

Course summary

Our course has been carefully designed by experts in the field of mechanical engineering to help prepare students for professional practice in the world of interdisciplinary technology. The course provides you with analytical and scientific knowledge and management skills to design and manufacture complex mechanical systems. You'll develop problem-solving expertise by creating practical solutions to problems that are directly relevant to industrial needs. The course emphasises industry-standard modelling and simulation techniques such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element analysis (FEA), as you establish the specification, design and analysis of mechanical engineering systems. You'll have access to the very latest equipment and resources to carry out this work, all of which will prepare you for a wide range of future careers. During your course, you'll have regular contact with blue chip companies and industry leaders in the sector, who will host visits and work placements and provide regular guest speakers to come and speak at the University of East London. The extended Mechanical Engineering with Foundation Year is perfect if you want a degree in mechanical engineering but don't have the standard entry requirements. First, we prepare you for your degree during the foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

For detailed information on entry requirements for our courses, please see the individual course pages. We consider a range of UK and worldwide qualifications at the appropriate level and also take relevant work experience into account when considering an application. Many courses have a Foundation Year option for those students whose qualifications do not meet the BA or BSc entry requirements. Applicants should have, or be working towards, grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent Level 2 qualification such as Functional Skills Level 2 in English and Mathematics or Key Skills Level 2 in Application of Number and Communication) Entry requirements are intended only as a guide for applicants. They are not a guarantee of an offer, nor of the conditions that may apply. When making a decision on your academic suitability, we will make an assessment of you as an individual and will use information other than qualifications; which may include predicted grades, performance at Level 2, relevant work experience, previous study at degree level, personal statement, references and any portfolio, written test or interview, to make our decision. If you have any questions, please contact a member of our Applicant Relations Team from Monday to Friday (9am–5pm) on +44 (0) 20 8223 3333 or
