Our BEng Mechanical Engineering course is offered as either a three or four year course with integrated placement year. We are driven by the demands of industry to produce graduates with extremely strong engineering and scientific skills coupled to strong skills in project management, team work and commercial awareness. The fast-evolving nature of mechanical engineering means that future generations of graduates must embrace change and thrive on a love of innovation. The challenges and rewards for skilled engineers who can design, manufacture and manage advanced products and processes are greater than ever. Throughout the course we emphasise the need to be able to apply engineering knowledge, technical skill, strong management skills and innovation to successfully solve engineering problems. You can expect to work on major projects often in partnership with commercial engineering companies. Your studies will encompasses all of the fundamental disciplines of mechanical engineering. Our close links with industry and the broad basis of our degree programmes ensure our students’ attractiveness to a wide range of employers and enhance our graduate employment record. Graduate opportunities exist in the fields of research, development and design, automotive engineering, manufacturing systems engineering, power generation, advanced technology and computer-aided design, accountancy, management, marketing, Navy, Army and RAF Officer training.
