Apply the practical knowledge acquired with an optional industrial placement position
This course contains classical mechanical engineering content, with the main emphasis on structural mechanics and control, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, energy conservation, engineering design, geology and geophysics, drilling oil and gas wells, oil and gas production engineering and reservoir engineering.
This unique course will enable you to acquire substantial knowledge and understanding of dealing with the complex multi-tasking issues in the process, design and management of the related petro-chemical and mechanical engineering industry.
There is also the choice to complete an appropriate period of industrial experience. Successful completion of an industrial placement year will add 'with Professional Experience' to your degree title. The Engineering Institutions will normally accept this period on industrial placement as appropriate training which will assist you in gaining Chartered status. You can also choose to work abroad or in the European Union through the ERASMUS scheme. You will arrange your placement with our support.
Thanks to the generosity of University of Salford donor and Chairman of Morson Group, Gerry Mason, we were delighted to be able to offer five scholarships specific to students beginning courses in September 2016 across all disciplines of engineering and will have ten more on offer in 16/17 and fifteen in 17/18. Students studying this course will be eligible to apply for this scholarship, please see here for more information.

We welcome applications from students who may not meet the stated entry criteria but who can demonstrate their ability to pursue the course successfully. Once we have received your application we will assess it and recommend it for SAES if you are an eligible candidate.
There are two different routes through the Salford Alternative Entry Scheme and applicants will be directed to the one appropriate for their course. Assessment will either be through a review of prior learning or through a formal test.
Students can join the programme from the variety of disciplines and A Level skills in Mathematics, physics, chemistry or BTEC in Engineering.
We positively welcome applications from students who may not meet the stated entry criteria but who can demonstrate their ability to successfully pursue a programme of study in higher education. Students who do not have formal entry qualifications are required to sit a written assessment which is designed for this purpose. Support in preparing for the written assessment is available from the University. Please contact Ghasem Nasr for further information.
Traditional lectures in a classroom, with PowerPoint presentations and videos and reference to laboratory work, demonstrations and specialised software as applicable.
Assessment will be in the form of individual assignments, coursework, laboratories or exams or combination of these four components of the assessment.
Graduates from the programme can get employment in petroleum and gas engineering, mechanical process and design engineering, chemical engineering and Energy sectors
There is an industrial placement tutor within the Division who deals with large group companies to obtain placements for students.
