Course summary

The Brunel Mechanical Engineering MEng gives students interested in pursuing careers in mechanical engineering an extra year of advanced study and training that will deepen your knowledge of the subject, expand your skill sets and put you on a fast-track to becoming a Chartered Engineer. As with our Mechanical Engineering BEng degree, you’ll get a thorough grounding in the core principles of engineering science including solid body mechanics, thermodynamics and materials science as well as in the fundamentals of product design, development and manufacturing. You’ll also get training in related disciplines integral to the profession such as computing, electrical engineering and electronics. And, as mechanical engineers not only design exciting products but venture into managing projects and companies, you’ll study elements of management, ethics, finance and law. In your final year, along with studying specialist topics taught at master’s degree level, you’ll take part in a major group project to design and manufacture a product. This will give you valuable experience working in a team-based environment and on-the-job opportunities to develop your leadership and management skills, competencies sought by employers. Recent examples of projects include a novel means of filtering water and applying fuel-cell technology to motorcycles. The MEng programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). It fulfils the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). It is also the quickest route for gaining Chartered Engineer (CEng) status as you can apply for the qualification upon successfully completing this course. Throughout your studies, you’ll have use of our modern, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and 24-hour access to industry standard engineering design software at dedicated computer clusters on campus, so you’ll have the opportunity and equipment to explore ideas and tackle problems. We offer two study options. You can choose four years full-time, or five years full-time with a one-year professional placement that will give you the chance to apply what you’ve learnt to a real life working environment. If you start on the full-time course, you can transfer to the professional development option, which includes the placement, at any time before the end of Year 2. In a world where business, government and society depend more and more on technology, graduates with the knowledge and skills to design and build the machines and processes driving the technological innovation are in demand, particularly those with higher qualifications. Your Brunel MEng will give you that expertise and stand you in good stead for a rewarding career in engineering.
