Mechanical Engineering - Sheffield Hallam University

- Develop skills in accordance with the Engineering Council's requirements for engineering courses - Undertake numerous practical projects, as well as an opportunity to undertake a paid year in industry - Attain a well-rounded education in mechanical engineering in both a theoretical and practical sense. Prepare for an exciting career with healthy employment prospects across a wide range of industries. You will benefit from our modern and industrial-standard facilities, and gain vital commercial experience through industry focused projects and placement opportunities. You have the opportunity to progress onto the MEng version of the course (based on academic performance). You are supported by online learning resources and high quality laboratories and learning spaces. A structured programme of study provides you with the knowledge and skills to undertake tasks of increasing complexity. You demonstrate your learning through a range of assessment tasks matched to the learning taking place, such as technical report writing, posters, presentations, in-class assessments, multiple-choice questions and examinations. You learn through - lectures - small group tutorials - seminars - engineering workshops and laboratories **Applied learning** **Work placements** You will be encouraged to apply for placement opportunities during your studies and will be supported in arranging a year-long work placement in between your second and third years by our dedicated Placements and Employability Team.This provides you with real-world experience to prepare you for your future engineering career. Previous students have taken industrial placements at companies such as McLaren Racing Limited, Bosch Thermotechnology, Rolls-Royce, BMW, EDF Energy, and Airbus UK . **Live projects** You take part in the Engineers without Border's Engineering for People Design Challenge. This prepares you to become a globally responsible engineer by working on real world issues including water supply, energy, and transport. In the final year you undertake a major individual project. This adds a unique appeal to your degree qualification, and reflects your own interests. In many cases students returning from an industrial placement continue their working relationship with their employer by undertaking a work-based project. **Networking opportunities** You can get involved with a number of student engineering societies. We also encourage you to become a member of a professional body, such as the Institute of Mechanical Engineers. The IMechE can help with career planning, building of engineering knowledge, and have a wealth of resources including scholarships and awards. **Competitions** Throughout the course you are encouraged to take part in international engineering competitions, such as Europe's most established education engineering competition – IMechE Formula Student – and the IMechE Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge. Both competitions are backed by industry and see you competing against teams from all over the world. Each year our strongest team from The Engineering for People Design Challenge goes on to compete in the Engineers without Borders national final. In 2016 our students won the whole competition and a two-week trip to Mexico City.
