Mechanical Engineering

**Overview** Recent years have seen huge advances in technology for transport, healthcare and robotics. If you enjoy getting stuck into technology projects and love finding practical solutions to problems, this BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree course is the perfect choice for you. To meet the challenges of the engineering world, you'll study the design, development, manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of engineered products. You'll get to specialise in advanced subjects such as sustainable development and computer-aided engineering and have the option to get involved in the University's Formula Student racing team. Accredited by This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). This course also meets the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC), which is set by the Engineering Council. After the course, you'll be eligible to apply for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status and progress to Chartered Engineer status (CEng) with further study and experience. With the current shortage of talented engineers, you'll be in high demand across many sectors and industries. You could join a graduate engineering programme or work in areas such as aerospace, research and development, and product design. These accreditations let potential employers know that this course gives you the relevant skills and abilities you need to work in the engineering industry when you graduate. This gives you an edge over students who didn’t do an accredited course when you’re applying for jobs. 95% Graduates in work or further study (DLHE, 2017) **What you'll experience** On this course you'll: - Learn about the underlying elements of successful engineering and manufacturing projects, including solid mechanics and dynamics, and engineering design - Use our CAD and rapid prototyping suites, energy systems lab, stress analysis lab, and metrology and 3D scanning microscopy facilities - Get the chance to be involved in Formula Student, where you'll design, construct and test a competitive race car with fellow students - Put your skills to the test by building your own products in our manufacturing workshops - Have to option to expand your learning and meet potential employers by working on an industrial project **Careers and opportunities** There's currently a shortage of talented engineers in the UK and abroad, so there will be many opportunities open to you when you graduate.
