About Mechanical Engineering with a Foundation Year at University of Sheffield

If you don't have the usual scientific or mathematical background for an engineering degree, a foundation year is for you. After successfully completing the foundation year, which has modules in mathematics, physics and chemistry, you can start the MEng degree

This is the most flexible of our MEng degrees and covers fundamental engineering principles, while giving you the freedom to follow individual interests in the third and fourth years. There is a strong focus on engineering design and modelling throughout the course, giving you plenty of opportunities to apply the theoretical knowledge you gain to practical engineering problems. You'll also be introduced to the role of business and management in engineering.

In the first five semesters, you'll study mathematics, applied dynamics, mechanics of fluids, mechanics of solids, applied thermodynamics, mechanical behaviour of materials, and electrical and electronic engineering. Other topics include computer-controlled systems and mechatronics.

In the first year, you'll take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you'll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It's designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.

You'll complete a group design project in the third year, and an extended individual project in the fourth year. You may be able to switch between our courses at the end of the first year.
