Course summary

Do you want to push the boundaries of engineering to solve complex problems to improve the sustainability and efficiency of the world we live in? Our accredited course will give you opportunity to combine your initiative, numeracy skills and detailed subject knowledge to make modern industry work better for us all. Mechanical engineering plays a vital role in many industries including aerospace, manufacturing, medicine, renewable energy and Formula 1. In fact, there is little in our daily lives that isn’t touched by mechanical engineering innovations, from the cars we drive to the way our food is processed. This degree has been accredited by the Institute of Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and provides you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UKSPEC).

Modules

You will share the same first year across the department - developing knowledge of the engineering fundamentals, science and design. The science subjects studied include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics and electro-mechanical systems. In design, the emphasis is on project work and in both the first and second years, you will undertake a design, make and test project, which you will manufacture in the department's well-equipped student workshop. At the end of the second year, you can remain on the BEng course or opt to switch to the four-year MEng degree provided you achieve at least 55% in the end of year assessment. Course flexibility opens up in year three with a long list of optional modules to help you tailor your degree to your own specific interests and career aspirations. All students undertake an individual project in their final year, many of which are based on real industry-relevant problems or challenges.
