Course description

The objectives of the Mechanical Engineering programme are:

  • To provide students with a solid background in design, manufacturing, dynamics, material science, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics for application within an industrial context.
  • To build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts and prepare technical reports.
  • Harvest critical awareness and the ability to critique different design solutions including aspects such as environmental constraints, economy or health and safety.
  • To develop computer modelling and interpret computational analysis through exposure to industrial facing project work.
  • To build team working skills to reflect the working environment of multi-disciplinary engineering teams.

Entry requirements

The entry requirements of the BEng Mechanical Engineering (with a Year in Industry) course are:

AAB-BBB at A level (including Mathematics).

Other recommended subjects include:
Further Mathematics
Design Technology

Variable offers made dependent on subjects studied and all applications are considered on an individual basis, with GCSE grades, AS Level subjects and grades, work experience, references and personal statement taken into account.

Or 32 at IB to including 5 at HL or 6 at SL Mathematics and 4 at HL or 5 at SL English Language.

Students studying for BTEC qualifications in relevant subjects require D*D*D* - D*D*D, to include B at A Level Mathematics. If they are not taking A Level Mathematics, they must achieve a minimum D in 'Mathematics for Technicians' and D in 'Further Mathematics for Technicians' modules of the BTEC. Students are also required to have minimum two A grades at GCSE, to include a minimum grade B in Mathematics and two other Science subjects.

Find out the entry requirements for an international student.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.

If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.
