Understand the key aspects of mechanical engineering Our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering course develops your understanding of mechanical engineering science as well as your practical skills and knowledge through hands-on classes and multiple design-build-test challenges with your fellow students. Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) accreditation This course is accredited by the IET, one of the world’s leading professional societies for engineers and technicians. The accreditation means that it will be easier for you to apply for professional registration as a chartered or incorporated engineer after graduation. Learn the science behind mechanical engineering From manufacturing techniques to programming, you will develop a strong level of knowledge and understanding of a wide range of mechanical systems and applications you will need to prepare for a successful career in engineering and science. Study specialist areas including: Manufacturing techniques Machines Structures Materials science Heat transfer Fluid mechanics Programming
Year One: In your first year, you will explore the key fundamentals of mechanical engineering, as well as computer aided engineering, mathematical principles, and elements of electrical engineering. You will take part in a team Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate (CDIO) challenge with other Mechanical Engineering students. Year Two: Your second year builds on your previous learning to explore more specialised elements of mechanical engineering including dynamic systems, statics and materials, and advanced mathematical principles. CDIO challenge is an interdisciplinary team challenge where you will work with students from other engineering subjects. Year Three: In your third year, you will work as part of group to undertake a final engineering project that will act as a culmination of your studies Alongside this, you will explore industrially-relevant elements such as renewability and sustainability, as well as understand basic business concepts within a engineering contexts. You will work on an individual project and present your work technically to other engineers as well as to a non-technical audience.
You will be assessed through a range of assignments, including: -Coursework -Written exams -Lab and practical work -Project work -Presentations -Online tests
