Mechanical engineers apply skills and knowledge in maths, science and software to design and manufacture innovative, efficient and reliable technology at an optimised cost. Mechanical engineers are at the forefront of sustainable solutions for a better world in the 21st century. Examples include the next generation of environmentally friendly materials (e.g. bio-based polymers) and devices for renewable energy sources (e.g. wind turbines). Mechanical engineers are involved in the design, manufacture and recyclability of most products: from mobile phones, to medical devices to Formula 1 racing cars. This course develops the technical, personal, interpersonal and professional skills necessary in mechanical engineering.
