Course summary

A mechanical engineering degree will provide you with the flexibility to be employed in any industrial company irrespective of their product range. Mechanical engineers are involved in producing innovative designs, using the latest materials and Computer Aided Engineering systems to meet ever-increasing expectations. With our excellent teaching standards and facilities, the University has a strong track record of providing industry with these highly skilled professionals. This course shares some modules with both the BEng Aerospace Systems Engineering and BEng Automotive Engineering degrees, but gives you the flexibility to gain employment across a broader range of industries, and is the first step towards gaining chartered engineer status. This course shares some modules with both the BEng Aerospace Systems Engineering and BEng Automotive Engineering programmes, but gives you flexibility to gain employment across a broader range of industries, and is the first step towards gaining chartered engineer status. In your first year you will study the fundamental skills and knowledge required by a modern engineer including principles of flight and an introduction to aircraft systems. In particular you will be introduced to computer packages commonly used in the aerospace industry. In your second year the core themes from year 1 are further developed so that they can be applied to solve engineering problems encountered in industrial and commercial environments. You will learn about the design process, through both group design and detail design work, and will have the opportunity to work on the Class 200 Formula Student car. In the final year, whilst adding to your knowledge of materials and structures, vibration and noise, and control systems, you have the option of covering either manufacturing or the rapidly growing field of micro-electrical-mechanical systems (MEMS). Project work, both in teams on design and individually on a topic of special interest.
