This course is suitable for individuals who relish problem-solving and have a strong desire to design and optimise advanced machines (be they driverless cars, high-speed trains, robotic manufacturing systems, tidal power stations or solar-powered generators) through the novel application of science and mathematics. This BEng Mechanical Engineering undergraduate programme encourages critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. The design exercises provide the opportunity for students to be engaged in cross-disciplinary challenges, preparing the way for tackling larger problems that span traditional engineering boundaries. The courses are led by academic staff from our active Research Centres, supported by specialist professionals from industry. Our recent graduates have obtained posts within Ford, Howden, Delphi Diesel Systems, AVL, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, Tube Lines and Holroyd. Our Mechanical engineering degree encompasses the remarkably successful disciplines of material sciences, thermodynamics, solid and fluid mechanics and robotics. This degree will train you in all aspects necessary for a successful career as a mechanical engineer.
