Engineers create innovative solutions to real-world problems. We invent products, systems and processes that are faster, smaller, cleaner, safer, stronger, more efficient, more environmentally friendly, more economical, more sustainable and more marketable. Mechanical engineers are responsible for the analysis, design and manufacture of an enormous range of industrial products and systems - almost anything with moving parts, from washing machines to aircraft. You will use fundamental physics, complex mathematics and state-of-the-art engineering software, as well as your creative and inventive skills, in designing and improving products. Mechanical engineering opens doors to an increasingly diverse range of subjects, including bioengineering, medical engineering, nanotechnology, sports engineering and renewable energy. Our Mechanical Engineering programmes equip students with a thorough, core knowledge, together with basic analytical, practical, design and communication skills, enabling students to go on to join a design, production or research team. Engineering at Edinburgh has a long and distinguished history and enjoys a vibrant and successful present. Our graduates have a distinctive blend of technical skills, ingenuity and entrepreneurship, that can open the door to a rewarding career. All of our BEng programmes are accredited as partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). An accredited programme is needed to complete the CEng educational base.
