Course summary

Our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree provides a strong theoretical and practical foundation for those looking to open the door to one of the many career opportunities available to mechanical engineers. With project-based learning throughout, you’ll develop the transferable skills and multidisciplinary awareness that are highly valued in industry. In your first year, you’ll get a grounding in the fundamental principles of applied mathematics and engineering sciences. What’s more, you’ll also get straight into the practical side of things, with a design-and-build challenge. You’ll develop scientific and analytical skills as you study specialisms like solid and fluid mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics and engineering mathematics. And with project work that’s rooted in our research and shaped around industry, you’ll learn how to apply those skills to real-world engineering. FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

  • This degree is also available with a Foundation Year. This means if you have the potential to study at degree level, but you don’t meet the entry requirements, you can choose to study a foundation year which will help you prepare for entry into Year 1.
  • Tackle real challenges from the world of engineering. Every year, we invite businesses and academic colleagues to set live projects that challenge our students to devise innovative solutions to current problems. You’ll get feedback and advice directly from industry insiders – giving you the chance to find out exactly what it takes to impress a potential future employer.
  • Showcase your engineering and design skills in extra-curricular group projects like the Formula Student racing car competition or the Engineering For People Design Challenge.
  • Spend your third year on an industry placement by taking our four-year route.
  • You may be invited to publish the results of your individual and group work in the Department of Engineering Student Society’s peer-reviewed journal and to present your final project work at the Department’s degree show.
  • This degree course shares a common first and second year with our MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering and a common first year with our MEng and BEng degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, so you may be able to transfer between courses.
