This course has strong links with industry and is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), meeting the educational requirements towards Chartered Engineer status. Hull was rated among the top three northern universities for student satisfaction with mechanical engineering courses in the Complete University Guide 2015. During your studies you will gain a broad base of knowledge, along with innovative problem-solving skills, which can be applied to a range of mechanical engineering-related industries. The foundation year is designed for students who have little or no background in the sciences or mathematics, but would still like to study engineering. It provides a solid grounding in the theory and expertise you need to advance to Year 1 of BEng study. Combine this with the opportunity to boost your employability by spending your penultimate year either applying the theory learned in previous years to real life projects on industrial placement, or by studying at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Asia, North America or Australia.
