About Mechanical Engineering with French at University of Sheffield

This course combines the study of core mechanical engineering topics with language modules. You'll have the chance to spend your third year studying mechanical engineering with one of our partner universities in France.

This 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 and two, you'll study the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, mathematics and management. You'll also take French language modules at an appropriate level to prepare you for your time in France.

During your third year you'll have the opportunity to study at one of our partner universities in France, such as INSA in Lyon, where you'll follow an agreed syllabus for mechanical engineering. A year abroad will help you become fluent in your chosen language and it offers a fantastic opportunity to experience another culture and develop your confidence and independence.

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 your second year with an average grade of 60 per cent in your chosen language units and an average 55 per cent across your remaining credits. 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 in France.
