What Will You Study
Our three-year BEng is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering as meeting partial fulfilment of the educational requirements to become a Chartered Engineer.
Our expert tutors and world-leading resources will support the development of your analytical ability in dealing with complex systems. They will also enhance your creativity for solving problems and producing innovative designs.
Mechanical Engineering is a field covering any industry that uses moving parts, from construction to transport; medicine to manufacturing; renewable energy to consumer technology. The programme gives you the skills necessary for the subject, with an applied focus on mechanical system designs. In your first year, you’ll study core Engineering and Engineering Mathematics subjects.
In your second year, your studies will continue and include more project work and during your final year you can specialise more – building teamwork skills while developing and indulging your passion for engineering. Example projects include high-lift aerodynamics for turbine blade design, small engine efficiency improvements by water injection, exoskeleton for spinal injury rehab and stiffness and strength of bonded joints between GRP pultrusions. Projects such as these help you gain solid experience and your combination of practical and analytical skills means you will have the option of entering an exciting variety of careers.
