About Mechanical Engineering with a Semester in China at University of Sheffield

Our study abroad programme gives you the chance to study at a university in China as part of your undergraduate degree, without extending the length of your course. It's a great opportunity to experience a different culture and develop international business skills, while studying core topics in mechanical engineering.

The degree gives you a solid grounding in mechanical engineering. It covers all the essentials, with an emphasis on modelling and design. You'll be introduced to business and management in an engineering context, and you'll complete an individual project in an area that interests you.

In years one, two and the first part of year three, you'll study the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, mathematics and management. Modules include applied dynamics, mechanics of fluids, mechanics of solids, applied thermodynamics, mechanical behaviour of materials and electrical and electronic engineering.

During the second half of your third year studying mechanical engineering, you'll have the opportunity to study at one of our partner universities in China, such as Shanghai Jiao Tong University. You'll start with an introduction to Chinese culture and language, and then study the same topics as your peers at the University of Sheffield. The course will be taught in English.

When you return to Sheffield for your final year, you'll carry out an extended individual project and build on your interests by choosing from a wide selection of engineering modules.

This is a practical course: our students learn by doing. You'll apply what you've learnt in the lecture theatre to engineering problems and experiments. You'll have the chance to manufacture and prototype your designs. You'll also develop the transferable skills employers look for, such as communication, project management and time management skills.

All our students get involved in week-long projects that develop the skills you'll need as a successful engineer. There's the Global Engineering Challenge in your first year, where you'll find creative solutions to real-world problems with engineers of different disciplines, and Engineering You're Hired! during your second year.

In order to meet the requirements for the study abroad aspect of this course you must pass both the first and second years with an average grade of 60 per cent, with no failed modules on the first attempt in your second year. Students who don't achieve this will transfer to our MEng Mechanical Engineering course (providing they meet the requirements to continue on the course) and stay in Sheffield for the third year.

In the year before you're due to study abroad you'll be allocated a place at one of our partner universities as part of an application process. The department's year abroad tutor will provide advice and support during your time abroad.
