Mechanical and manufacturing engineering is intended to provide a thorough grounding in mechanical engineering science and its application in design and the solution of a range of engineering problems. In addition, students will develop knowledge in a suitable range of manufacturing processes and materials. The programme will also consider environmental aspects of design and technology and will enable students to gain a range of skills, relevant to a broad range of employment opportunities.
Year 1: Academic Writing, Integrating Project, Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Science, Further Science for Engineering, Manufacturing and Materials. Year 2: Engineering Science 1, Engineering Science 2, Mathematics, Engineering Design, Materials and Introduction to Manufacturing, Study Skills and Engineering Applications. Year 3: Group Project, Thermofluid Mechanics 1, Management Innovation and Sustainability, CAE and Stress Analysis, Manufacturing Design and Technology, Control and Automation, Dynamics, Manufacturing Systems. Year 4: Major Project, Advanced Stress Analysis and FEA, Advanced Computational Methods , Environmental and Quality Engineering, Advanced Processes and Materials, Plant and Asset Engineering
The course is assessed by a mixture of coursework, phase tests, presentations, vivas and examinations. Students are given the opportunity to undertake engineering projects in teams and as individuals, applying the content covered within the modules.

Additional entry requirements
The student satisfaction data is from students surveyed during the Covid-19 pandemic. The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data – it is important to note your experience may be different from theirs. This data will be based on the subject area rather than the specific course. Read more about this data on the Discover Uni website.
