Mechanical Engineering

The Foundation degree in Mechanical Engineering is a two-year degree offered by Belfast Metropolitan College in collaboration with Queen's University Belfast. Students have the option of either seeking employment when they graduate, or transferring to Stage 2 of the BEng degree in Mechanical Engineering at Queen's, where they can graduate with an Honours degree after a further two years of study. The majority of man-made products are mechanical or have mechanical parts, and mechanical engineers are to be found working in virtually every type of industry, on products as diverse as racing cars, jet engines, cruise ships, farm machinery, sports equipment and domestic appliances. Mechanical engineers therefore have very wide career opportunities and are employed because of their scientific knowledge, design expertise, problem-solving skills and business awareness.
