Mechanical Engineering - University of Huddersfield

**Mechanical engineers are vital in today’s modern world. They design, manufacture and operate a huge range of products and processes. From high-performance race cars through to lifesaving medical equipment, from railways to environmentally sustainable technology, none of this would be possible without mechanical engineers. So if you’re hoping for a career that puts you right at the heart of technological developments effecting all of society, this course could be the perfect start to change the world we live in.** Successfully completing the MEng course allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the subject than the BEng course. It also means that you graduate with a Postgraduate level qualification, which can give you an advantage in the job market. This STEM course is designed to give you a thorough grounding in the principles and fundamentals of mechanical engineering. You’ll get involved in practical work, projects and problem-solving too. We’ll cover a range of topics within the subject, including mathematics, mechanics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and materials. You’ll be supported in developing your understanding of the value of mechanical engineering: - In the design and operation of power stations - Making best use of our remaining fossil fuels - In the bio-medical industry - In the manufacturing sector We want to help you go on to become a leader in your chosen field. So during the final year of your integrated Master’s we’ll study modules relating to management. We take a broader view of the commercial aspects of the industry, and study finance for managers. We’ll also explore advanced analytical skills and give you the option to take a module in either new product development or dimensional measurement. It’s all about encouraging you to think strategically and develop your leadership skills. During your studies you’ll be offered the chance to take a placement after your second year. You could work in the industry and put what you’ve learnt into practice. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national events like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student (http://www.teamhare.co.uk/) and Railway Challenge competitions (http://hudrail.co.uk/). The course is fully accredited by the IMechE, which means it can go towards part of the academic requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

This means it contributes to the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status (CEng). For registration as a Chartered Engineer additional further learning may be required. The MEng qualification is regarded as the professional benchmark for engineers. An extension to the BEng award, it gives those who show potential the opportunity to study Master’s level modules and attain an enhanced undergraduate award which contributes to the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. This accreditation is reviewed on a regular basis.
