Mechanical Engineering with Industrial Placement Year

Our courses provide you with the fundamentals of engineering, alongside design modules throughout your degree, which enable you to apply your knowledge and develop the skills you need to become a successful engineer. This three-year course covers the essential principles of mechanical engineering, such as mechanics, structures and materials, design and computing. In your final year, you will carry out an individual project, and extend your knowledge through advanced modules to suit your interests, from orthopaedic biomechanics to automobile systems. The Industrial Placement Year is an additional year-long module that allows you to apply for a placement with an engineering-based organisation. The Industrial Placement Year will be taken between your second and third years, extending your degree to four years. During your year-long placement, you will fulfil the role of a trainee engineer on a full-time basis. We offer our students a dynamic learning environment; your course will include a combination of lectures, laboratory classes, tutorials, private study, and individual and group projects.
