Mechanical and Electrical Engineering

There is strong industrial demand for skilled engineers able to span both the mechanical and electrical engineering disciplines. Our course will give you the necessary fundamental knowledge and tools to satisfy this demand in a unique way. Students on this course will study and combine units from the mechanical and electrical disciplines along the following themes: design and integration of electro-mechanical systems, energy conversion and actuation systems, embedded systems and control, power electronics and electric drives and thermal energy management. A typical graduate will understand and be able to innovate in the following technologies. The power flow of a renewable energy application from the wind, through the electric generator and the power network, to the user in the home. Surgical robotics, by exploring the integration of mechanical and electrical elements to offer patients life changing healthcare. The complete power train of a future electric vehicle, from the energy storage system through to the electric motors and then to the mechanical drive train and traction system. Battery free technology, which harvests background energy, allowing sensors to operate in previously inaccessible and far reaching locations. Years one and two offer a grounding in mathematics, thermal management, dynamics and control, computing, electrical energy technologies, and analogue and digital electronics. In the third and fourth year students will choose from a range of option courses and engage in group design projects and an individual research project. This will allow you to focus your learning on anything from soft robotics and intelligent adaptable power systems to efficient, clean propulsion technologies.
