This programme provides the specialist knowledge and expertise required for a professional career in mechanical engineering. Project-based learning in all years, including live industry-led projects, will help you develop transferable skills and multi-disciplinary awareness. The Foundation Year provides a route onto a degree if you dont have the qualifications, or have not studied advanced level subjects sufficiently related to your course of choice, but have the ability to study a degree. Features and benefits: - This degree course shares a common first and second year with our MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering and a common first year with our MEng and BEng degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, so you may be able to transfer between courses. - All units have been designed to use up to date examples from the world of engineering. Every year, the School of Engineering invites industrial and academic colleagues to set new, live projects that challenge our students to devise innovative solutions to current problems. You will get feedback and advice directly from industrialists and have the chance to find out exactly what it takes to impress a potential future employer. - You will have the opportunity to work with other students in the Student Society on extra-curricular projects to apply and showcase your engineering and design skills in, for example, the Formula Student racing car competition or the Engineering For People Design Challenge. - You can apply to become a STEM Ambassador great for developing your communication skills. Full training will be provided for you to work on projects in which you can share your enthusiasm for engineering, design and technology in schools and at public events. - Full training will be provided for you to use our state-of-the-art workshops, laboratories and specialist engineering software. Along with formal timetabled sessions, workshops and laboratories operate on a drop in basis throughout the week for use as best suits your needs.
