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. Mechanical and manufacturing engineering share a common programme for the first two years, where you will learn the fundamentals of engineering science and design. In the third year you will specialise in mechanical engineering options. This is a five-year course and year four has opportunities for a year placement in industry.
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. The third year of this course is spent on a group design-and-make project, when, depending on the stream you have selected, you will study a number of core and optional modules. The fourth year of this course is spent in industry. In your final year you will undertake a major individual project. You will also study compulsory modules in advanced engineering topics along with a range of optional modules, allowing you to tailor the course to your interests.
