What Will You Study

Our four year MEng in Mechanical Engineering is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and builds upon the BEng scheme offering opportunity for you to develop your leadership, entrepreneurial and management potential as well as deeper understanding in technical challenge.

You will follow our BEng course for your first three years of study and in your fourth and final year you will take masters level modules alongside project work.

Our fourth year structure operates with an alternating pattern of intensive two week taught modules followed by a week dedicated towards your group project work. Often linked with industry these projects offer the pinnacle of achievement whilst at university and have been praised by external examiners and industry. Examples of previous projects include, waste water energy generation with Yorkshire Water, novel prototype tidal turbine with WASP Cumbria Ltd, performance improvement of the Sinterstation 2000 with 3D Systems Europe, and surface finish of metallic powder bed additive manufactured in part with BAE Systems and Formula Student.

Additionally, students on the MEng will undertake two short industry-linked projects. These will provide you with more in-depth knowledge and highly-valued project management and leadership experience.
