If you're interested in Mechanical Engineering and want to know how things are designed, manufactured and made to work, this is the course for you. Through consultation with local employers, we have developed a highly industry relevant programme that delivers the knowledge, experience and general transferable skills required for employment in this broad and exciting field.
Our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering programme will provide you with the core and specialist principles of this highly employable engineering field to furnish you with the required skills to enjoy an exciting career path within this diverse sector. You will have the opportunity to follow a Mechanical pathway, after you have sampled core engineering subjects.
The course consists of core common modules at level 4 and then develops with more subject specialisms later in the programme. Opportunities to explore software and practical subject areas such as computer aided design, controls & simulation and computational fluid dynamics are embedded within the modules to enable a blend of practical and theoretical experiences to enhance employability.
A current shortage of skilled mechanical engineers means there are excellent career opportunities for talented engineering graduates as design, production and project engineers within a variety of sectors. Many of our graduates are now employed by major companies such as EDF Energy, Westinghouse Springfields, BAE Systems, Airbus, NIC, GCE and Ford Motor Company as mechanical design, production, project or research and development engineers.
