Mechanical engineers are an important part of our society. They are concerned with the design and development, commissioning and maintenance of engineering systems. These engineering systems cover a wide range of processes, including the field of manufacturing. From the production of silicone chips to jet aircrafts, mechanical engineers are a key component in the process.
This highly practical and challenging course will develop your professional knowledge and design and analytical skills. You will also learn about the social, legal and environmental issues that are associated with senior engineering roles. The broad range of subjects will give you the knowledge and skills needed for a variety of engineering careers. There is a strong management theme throughout this course which prepares you for a career as a mechanical engineer. It will also enable you to interact with a broad range of clients and employers from small businesses to large multinationals. The course also benefits from strong links with industry.
Our mechanical engineering courses are accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). This course also provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to become Chartered Engineers.
This course will develop your professional knowledge as well as design and analytical skills. You will gain awareness of social, legal and environmental issues that are all associated with the role of a senior engineer. You will study a broad range of engineering subjects that will give you the knowledge and skills to prepare you for a wide variety of engineering careers.
You can opt to take an industrial placement year, which you arrange with our support, between the second and third year of your course. This has a number of benefits: you will improve your employment prospects after graduation, you get to see the engineering theory you have learned in action, they are often paid positions, and many of our industrial placement students ultimately improve their degree classification over their second year results to receive top class degrees. Successful completion of an industrial placement year will add 'with Professional Experience' to your degree title.
