Overview* Mechanical engineers are involved with the design and manufacturing of almost anything with moving parts, from household appliances to renewable energy systems. Our accredited five-year BEng in Mechanical Engineering with a year in industry incorporates a range of engineering disciplines including stress analysis, fluid dynamics, computational fluid dynamics, control systems, manufacturing technologies and industry 4.0. You’ll have access to industry-standard software and facilities, helping you develop a well-rounded skill set and become the digital engineer of the future. Regular practical sessions will reinforce this knowledge while group activities will equip you with transferable soft skills like communication and leadership. The year in industry will accelerate your development even further, setting you apart from other engineering graduates. Our state-of-the-art facilities in Productivity East act as a link between our students and our industrial partners, helping you secure placements and graduate employment. Our course structure, innovative teaching and assessment, and embedded employability opportunities have all been praised by professional accrediting bodies like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). About Mechanical engineering is a great fit for people who are curious about how things work, have a knack for problem solving, or are simply interested in machines and manufacturing. You will work in industry-standard facilities in Productivity East, the home of Engineering at UEA. Your curiosity will be encouraged throughout your engineering studies, as you develop the mind-set, tools, experience, and insight you need to pursue a rewarding career in mechanical engineering. All our engineering courses follow a common first year, to build a foundation of engineering knowledge including problem solving, computer aided design, manufacturing, and engineering, programming, and sketching. At the beginning of the course, you will be tasked with an industrially sponsored group project to develop commercial awareness and soft skills like teamworking and communication which will serve you well in your studies and future career. You will then deepen your knowledge of solid and fluid mechanics, control systems, thermodynamics, design, and manufacturing. You can tailor the course to your interests with optional modules in electrical engineering, energy storage, solar energy engineering, and nuclear energy engineering. The pinnacle of the course is a major individual project on a topic of your choice. This could be based on a real-world challenge related to an industrial partner or to the research of your supervisor. This is a unique opportunity to work on something close to your heart and use it as a passionate talking point in job interviews. Employability is built into your course from day one. Our annual Select partnership scheme is an exclusive opportunity for you to refine your interview skills, build your own professional network, and potentially gain a placement or a permanent position with one of our industrial partners.
