BEng Mechanical Engineering (with Foundation Year) is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Develop your understanding of stress analysis, dynamics, heat transfer, mechatronics, materials and manufacture, and maths. Learn to use industry standard software and gain plenty of hands-on experience testing theories in our well-equipped laboratories. Choose your modules in a way that allows you to specialise, perhaps with your chosen career in mind. Gain an inside track on the profession through factory visits and professional briefings with industry leading organisations across the UK. This course is developed alongside our partner employers to make sure you're industry ready when you graduate. They also provide you with placement opportunities, as well as advice on CV-writing and interview techniques. You’ll share modules with aerospace and automotive engineering students in your first year. This means that you can transfer onto one of these courses if your focus changes. Depending on your results, you may also be able to extend your studies by a year to graduate with an MEng in Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical engineers are sought after for traditional engineering jobs and the product development process. They are also highly regarded in the world of financial business. You’ll also be in demand to help maximise usage of high capital plants and operations such as power stations, oil refineries and hospitals.
