Mechanical Engineering at University of Salford - UCAS

Course summary

Mechanical engineers shape the systems and infrastructure that supports our daily life. As automation and robotics expands into new industries, open up exciting future career opportunities in this field and go further with a MEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree with Salford. Mechanical engineers manage a wide range of processes, heating systems to refrigerators to cars, from the production of silicone chips to creating jet aircrafts - yet across the world they are in short supply. Designed around real-world problem solving, the integrated masters MEng pathway steadily increases your knowledge base, taking it beyond undergraduate to an advanced level. Develop in-demand engineering knowledge and skills Learning takes place at our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester. Across four years of study - or five, if you choose to include an industry placement year, you’ll develop practical problem-solving skills in our specialist mechanical, aerodynamics, composite material and control and dynamic laboratories, and our Morson Makerspace additive manufacturing and digital fabrication industry facility. You will study engineering in relation to mathematics, electrical systems, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, engineering structures and dynamics. You’ll explore elements such as engineering dynamics and control engineering and take part in a mechanical group design project. Collaboration is core to our values, so we strive to embed this throughout your studies. You will experience group projects that will build your confidence and capabilities in team working, problem-solving and communication - all desirable skills for real-world engineering careers. Mechanical Engineering degree courses at Salford are designed to equip you with technical knowledge and transferable skills, and a commitment to the highest professional standards. Get closer to industry The course team has long-standing connections with industry, both in the North West and beyond. With strong management themes running throughout, you will benefit from a stimulating range of external guest lecturers, industry competitions, projects, and engagement with professional networks. You might even choose to follow in the footsteps of other mechanical engineering alumni and join the Salford Racing society designing a car to race at Silverstone. You can also choose to take an industrial placement year, developing your workplace skills and adding ‘with Professional experience’ to your degree award. Our new home for engineering In Autumn 2022, we opened our new £65 million hub for science, engineering and the environment - and our new home for engineering. Sustainability-designed and 100% electric powered, the building offers unrivalled teaching, learning and research facilities and provides exciting new spaces for industry collaboration. Features • Take your studies to postgraduate level with an additional year where you can explore automation, robotics, engineering computation and mobile robotics • Learn about the relationship between micro-structure and mechanical properties of materials, mechanisms of corrosion and corrosion protection • Explore specialist modules such as dynamics and control engineering, structural mechanics and Finite Element analysis • Write concise specifications, present concepts, perform appropriate calculations and select appropriate manufacturing processes • Gain an understanding of the concepts of engineering thermodynamics and fluid mechanics • Understand project timings, resource allocation and decision-making methodology used by industry

Modules

This course will develop your professional knowledge as well as design and analytical skills. You will gain awareness of social, legal and environmental issues that are all associated with the role of a senior engineer. You will study a broad range of engineering subjects that will give you the knowledge and skills to prepare you for a wide variety of engineering careers. You can opt to take an industrial placement year in between your second and third year of your course. This has a number of benefits: you will improve your employment prospects after graduation, you get to see the engineering theory you have learned in action, they are often paid positions, and many of our industrial placement students ultimately improve their degree classification over their second year results to receive top class degrees. Successful completion of an industrial placement can lead to the Award of a Certificate in Professional Studies.
