The Engineering Council defines mechanical and manufacturing engineers as 'exponents of today’s technology through creativity and innovation'. On this course you will cover the fundamentals of design, engineering, maths, solid mechanics and dynamics, and electrical and electronic principles. You can then specialise in more advanced subjects, from engineering programming to sustainable development. WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) which means that it meets all of the academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). It also fulfils some of the academic requirements to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng). We pay Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) student membership fees for all of our students. MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE: The £100 million that the university has invested in its buildings and facilities over the past 10 years includes our computer-aided design and rapid prototyping suites, energy systems lab, petroleum engineering lab, metrology and 3D scanning microscopy facilities. WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? This course is ideal for students who enjoy practical, hands-on, problem-based learning. SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED: On this course you can create your own designs in our manufacturing workshops, you can get involved in the University of Portsmouth Formula Student racing team, and you can apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry which will put you ahead of the field when applying for graduate jobs. AFTER THE COURSE: It is generally accepted that there is a current shortage of engineers and our courses are aimed at educating engineers for a multitude of different careers in engineering and technology. You could work for a large company, in the Armed Forces or in one of the many small companies within this sector. You could even start your own specialist company.
