So much of our everyday life is influenced by engineered products. As a mechanical engineer you’ll design, develop, operate and manufacture products and parts across a range of sectors. Mechanical Engineering opens up a wide range of local, national and international career opportunities and as a Master of Engineering you’ll graduate in a prime position to take advantage of being a Chartered Engineer. This four-year MEng Mechanical Engineering course, designed in accordance with the current requirements of higher education Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) and relevant industry and the professional bodies such as IMechE and IET, will prepare you for a career in a wide range of engineering leadership positions. You’ll benefit from dedicated support from our experienced staff, who are both experienced professionals from industry and expert researchers. Building on our BEng Mechanical Engineering degree, currently ranked 1st in the UK for course satisfaction and 7th overall in this year’s Guardian subject league table, you’ll experience the very best the engineering education sector has to offer. You will undertake a wide range of laboratory work exploring manufacturing, 3D printing, thermodynamics, dynamics, and structural analysis, so you can analyse, calculate, model, and experience your proposed concepts. As a result of this integrated learning you’ll develop analytical and creative problem-solving skills which are highly valued by employers. This MEng course differs from the BEng as it has an increased emphasis on project work, which you’ll experience as an individual and as part of a team. You’ll also undertake an integrated Major Group Project in your final year where you’ll look to solve real world industrial problems and as a result, benefit from working with potential future employers. You’ll also take an individual research module in year 3 to boost your self-managed learning and research skills. As a MEng student you’ll develop valuable commercial skills in areas such as marketing, Intellectual Property, team working dynamics, leadership, as well as engineering project management. Our MEng Mechanical Engineering course leads students through computer based advanced design, simulation and modelling practice in various topics including computational engineering, fluid dynamics, stress analysis, and industrial management. You’ll benefit from using our workshop and laboratory facilities including CAD/CAM and engineering computer modelling centre, industrial-scale CNC milling and lathe machines, metal and plastic rapid prototyping machines, scanning electronic microscope, Instron bi-axial fatigue-testing machine, tensile-testing machine, material-preparation facilities, welding equipment, electronic testing and measuring equipment such as oscilloscopes and signal generating and testing facilities, wind tunnel, air compressors, steam engine and many more laboratory facilities used during course and in individual and group major projects.
