Do you want to push the boundaries of engineering to solve complex problems to improve the sustainability and efficiency of the world we live in? This course will give you opportunity to combine your initiative, numeracy skills and detailed subject knowledge to make modern industry work better for us all. Mechanical engineering plays a vital role in many industries including aerospace, manufacturing, medicine, renewable energy and Formula 1. In fact, there is little in our daily lives that isn’t touched by mechanical engineering innovations, from the cars we drive to the way our food is processed. As well as taught sessions, you’ll have access excellent manufacturing research facilities, including robotics and 3D printing techniques. You will also apply your knowledge in individual and group project settings. This is a three year course and year two will be spent studying abroad. It is fully accredited.
The first two years provide a good grounding in the broad fundamentals of mechanical engineering science and engineering design. The science subjects studied include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics and electro-mechanical systems. A major individual project makes up a third of your studies. This may involve computational and or experimental investigations often related to research activities within the school. You will also study a mix of compulsory and optional modules, the latter allowing you to tailor the course to your interests.
