The BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering with Foundation at the University of Bolton will equip you with the skills and knowledge for a career in the mechanical engineering profession – a profession that is essential in so many areas of the modern world, including design and manufacture, construction, energy, aerospace and automobile manufacture. Throughout the course, you will develop management, organisation and employability skills alongside your subject-specific knowledge and understanding. Your studies will focus on particular areas of engineering such as mechanical design, systems engineering, analysis of materials and structures, and the theory and application of finite element analysis. You will study the theory and practice of mechanical engineering, and carry out case studies, practical and laboratory work and problem-solving projects. You will also develop the presentation and managerial skills that you will use to manage engineering projects and support your future career development in the industry. This course has recently been reviewed and reconfigured by the University with a view to gaining accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). The course uses UK-SPEC learning outcomes and has been designed to meet the academic requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Please see the Engineering Council UK website for further details of UK-SPEC.
