Combine detailed subject knowledge with initiative to solve complex engineering problems. Develop the professional skills to pursue a career as an engineer. Our course teaches you how to use physical science, mathematics and computing to analyse engineering systems. You'll combine this with study in design and manufacturing processes to understand how modern industry works. Your first two years give you a detailed understanding of the core mechanical engineering principles. You’ll learn how to incorporate design into the science, manufacturing and management elements of engineering. You can apply this knowledge to analyse, build and test a product from scratch. You can switch to any of our five mechanical engineering degrees up to the end of your second year. The flexibility in our course structure lets you choose the direction of your degree with a large pick of option units including aerospace, automotive, design, manufacturing, environmental or medical engineering. Group and individual projects are a chance for you to put theory into practice and gain experience in engineering enterprise management.
