This degree is ideal for practically minded, creative individuals who relish problem-solving and have a strong desire to design and optimise advanced machines (be they driverless cars, high-speed trains, robotic manufacturing systems, tidal power stations or solar-powered generators) through the novel application of science and mathematics.
Why study this course
Our Mechanical engineering degree encompasses the remarkably successful disciplines of material sciences, thermodynamics, solid and fluid mechanics and robotics. This degree will train you in all aspects necessary for a successful career as a mechanical engineer.
More about this course
Mechanical engineering encompasses the remarkably successful disciplines of mechanical design, material sciences, thermodynamics and heat transfer, solid and fluid mechanics and control. Our approach is to encourage critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. The design exercises provide the opportunity for students to be engaged in cross-disciplinary challenges, preparing the way for tackling larger problems that span traditional engineering boundaries. The courses are led by academic staff from our active Research Centres, supported by specialist professionals from industry. The course is delivered through lectures, tutorials, group design exercises, laboratory classes and engineering workshops. Learning involves a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational study.
Who is this course for?
This course is for ideal for students who enjoy problem-solving, finding practical solutions and want to design advanced machines. This course is suited for those who would like work in industries like transport, power generation, manufacturing, automotive and oil and gas exploration.
Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science (largely physics) and mathematics that underpin engineering principles. They are also instructed in how to develop computer programmes, a skill that is ever more relevant and valuable. Group exercises provide students with the opportunities to undertake preliminary engineering designs. Students begin to specialise in year two, advancing their knowledge of solid and fluid mechanics while also studying measurement, data analysis and mechatronics. Students registered on the BEng degree, who average at least 60 per cent at the end of year two, are encouraged to transfer to the MEng degree. The third year places increasing emphasis on mechanical design. Modules include: fluid mechanics, mechatronics and control, structural analysis, thermodynamics and heat transfer and engineering management.

After the course
Mechanical Engineering graduates work in industries such as transport, power generation, manufacturing, automotive and oil and gas exploration. Our recent graduates have obtained posts within Ford, Howden, Delphi Diesel Systems, AVL, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, Tube Line and Holroyd. These engineers are involved in areas as diverse as product development, advanced computerbased design, computational fluid dynamics simulations, robotics, energy conservation, maintenance, decommissioning and engineering management.
Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics courses benefit from recently redeveloped facilities with modern teaching lecture theatres equipped with the latest interactive AV systems and modern IT laboratories which are updated annually.
A dynamic virtual learning environment (Moodle) provides students with access to online course materials, resources, interactive activities, assessment and communication tools.
Specialist facilities include flight deck, motion simulators, wind tunnels, optical IC Engines, optical compressors, optical fuel injection systems, flywheel, formula car simulator, micro Turbine, cavitating flows, high performance computing, flight test course.
