Study Mechanical Engineering Degrees

Combining principles of engineering, physics and materials science, mechanical engineering is a broad discipline. As a mechanical engineer, you can expect to be involved in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems. These systems can range from vehicles, industrial machinery to robotics.

During an undergraduate degree, you will be given a foundation knowledge in mechanical engineering, with many opportunities to develop your understanding. You will study modules such as thermodynamics, mechanics, dynamics and electronics. You may also be required to work with computer aided design (CAD) systems, as well as familiarising yourself with project development and management.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical projects. You may also be able to participate in a work industry placement, as well as group project work.
