Mechanical engineers play an important role in many of the products in the world around us. This involvement can range from design, manufacture and development, through to the management or marketing of products. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering, you will have the opportunity to use your skills in whatever sector you wish. The early years of this BEng Mechanical Engineering course at UWE Bristol share elements with the aerospace and automotive engineering degrees. So, after developing a strong grounding in the fundamentals of engineering, you will have the option to transfer onto one of these. As you progress, you will increase your understanding of stress analysis, dynamics, heat transfer, mechatronics, materials and manufacture, together with learning industry standard software before you specialise in your final year. Throughout the course, you will gain lots of hands-on experience, testing theories in our well-equipped laboratories.
