Course content

Mechanical engineers work in almost every sector you can think of – energy, transport, aviation, robotics, pharmaceuticals and the motor or marine industries. They focus on the technological aspect of engineering, and developing new techniques and tools that will solve real-world problems. There’s also the opportunity to specialise on an Advanced Vehicle Engineering pathway. Wherever you want to go, a degree in mechanical engineering can help to get you there.

Here, expect a practical education with substantial workshop activities. You’ll spend time getting hands-on in our virtual engineering lab and with our state-of-the-art 3D printing technology, and your individual final-year project will be a 'design-make-test' project that simulates the tasks and challenges mechanical engineers face. Our course accreditation means that students are on the road to achieving Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. You’ll graduate with an impressive skillset and understanding, and as a valued member of a department with a proven track record for amazing future job prospects.

Our students have an amazing track-record in winning national and international prizes, with recent winning prizes being awarded to our Mechanical Engineering and Advanced Vehicle Engineering students; including Engineering Sketches Prize competition, run by The Engineering Club, and the IMechE’s Best Project prize. Students joining us really are joining a winning team that will enhance their future job prospects.

In this course you can choose to follow a specific pathway. The pathways options are detailed below:

  • Advanced Vehicle Engineering
