Mechanical engineering is a large, established field of engineering. It covers the design and manufacture of small components and devices right through to large scale items and systems. Also, recent, rapid developments in technology, such as 3D printing, have changed the face of mechanical engineering. To help you to keep up-to-date with these changes and to become a mechanical engineer of the future, we work closely with industry to ensure you are as well-prepared as possible for a career in this exciting and rewarding industry. Our Mechanical Engineering courses are highly practical and use real examples and projects from industry. On this course you’ll be guided how to analyse and solve mechanical engineering problems by producing your own creative and innovative solutions using the latest technology. In the School of Science and Technology we pride ourselves on our hands-on approach to teaching and giving you real-world experience. With our brand-new engineering courses we are taking these experiences to the next level with a revolutionary approach to teaching engineering. We are partnering with industry every step of the way to ensure that you become the very best engineer of the future by working with all types and sizes of engineering organisations. In our innovative approach, you’ll spend a large proportion of your time each year applying theory to live, industry-led projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a year-long work placement to boost your industry knowledge even further.
