Mechanical Engineering combines scientific principles, mathematics and 'realisation'. Scientific principles underpin all aspects of engineering, while mathematics is the language used to quantify and optimise solutions. Realisation encapsulates the whole range of creative abilities which distinguish the engineer from the scientist; to conceive, make and actually bring to fruition something which has never existed before.
The course comprises advanced topics in mechanical engineering with modules spanning engineering science, design and technology. The modules have been developed to complement departmental research along with our strong industrial links. Modules and projects are delivered by academic staff having international expertise in their discipline. This course will appeal to students progressing directly from undergraduate study in engineering or related fields; to more experienced professionals wishing to update their skills; to engineering graduates/professionals holding an accredited bachelor's degree and seeking to fulfil the academic requirements for Chartered Engineering (CEng) registration with the UK Engineering Council (ECUK).
