About Mechanical Engineering with an Industrial Placement Year at University of Sheffield

This degree follows the same syllabus as the BEng Mechanical Engineering. Your learning is complemented with a year working in a mechanical engineering company, which will put your academic studies into context and improve your skills and employability.

The course 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 the business and management context of engineering, and you'll also complete an individual project in an area that interests you.

In your first two years, you'll follow a core syllabus in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, mathematics and management. Modules cover mathematics, applied dynamics, mechanics of fluids, mechanics of solids, applied thermodynamics, mechanical behaviour of materials, and electrical and electronic engineering.

Year three is your placement in industry. A year in industry is an excellent opportunity to build a work profile, learn more about your own career interests, and start your journey towards being a professionally recognised engineer.

You'll be responsible for finding your own placement but the departmental and faculty careers and employability teams will help you find the right position and get the most out of your experience. Salaries for placement students typically range between
