The first two years are common to all mechanical engineering students, with teaching based on four main themes:
- design and manufacture
- dynamics and control
Years one and two cover the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering and include lectures, laboratories, design classes and short projects in modelling and manufacturing.
The third year builds on this foundation and applies the principles covered in years one and two to more realistic and complex engineering applications. A major element of the third year is an open-ended individual research project that requires students to demonstrate independent and creative thinking.
This course is fully accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, and, on completion, you will have already met part of the benchmark academic requirements for becoming an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
