BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering

Would you like to use your mathematical and analytical skills to solve real-life problems? A BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree allows you to do just that, and develop a well paid career with lots of options. Mechanical engineers are sought-after in all types of industries, from food processing to pharmaceutical manufacture, as well as in high-profile sectors such as automobile and aerospace.

Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Engineering Council, this is a modern mechanical engineering degree that is relevant to a range of industries. It has been developed with engineering professionals and forms the educational base for Chartered Engineer status, with a period of further learning. We have strong links with industry and place considerable emphasis on student projects. You could design, analyse, research and test anything from wind turbines to turbojet engines.

What you will study

This Mechanical Engineering degree includes the computing, mathematical and physical sciences required to design, develop and manufacture a range of engineering systems. Youll study the core areas that underpin mechanical engineering, which are material science, engineering mechanics, thermofluids, manufacturing systems and engineering design. This includes extensive laboratory experience, so you can gain the skills needed to test systems that you have analysed and constructed.

Youll also study a management, business and professional practice module. This will develop your initiative, and effective...
