Mechanical Engineering

Build a solid foundation in the principles of mechanical engineering. Begin with an exciting interdisciplinary module set up with funding from the Royal Academy of Engineering and progressing on to tackling a technically challenging group design project. You’ll develop your skills and broaden your opportunities to become a professional engineer. This course extends our BEng (Hons) with provision for advanced study of industrially relevant topics. You will engage in experimental work in excellent laboratories and workshops. You’ll immerse yourself in additional modules in marketing and entrepreneurship, industrial computational fluid dynamics, robotics and control and structural design. You’ll open the door to a successful future. With starting salaries from £23,000, our graduates have gone on to work for Hoare Lea, Babcock Marine, Becton Dickinson, e2v, Edwards, the Shaw Group and the Ministry of Defence. * Open the door to a successful future.
