About this course

Learn how to take a product from initial concept, to design and manufacture. Our 4-year Mechanical Engineering degree will put you on the path to becoming a chartered engineer. You'll learn about mechanical design, structures and materials, then select specialist topics to study. Project work throughout the degree provides the opportunity to apply your design skills to real-world problems.

This integrated Masters lets you select a specialist theme pathway for years 3 and 4, or stay on in this generalised Mechanical Engineering theme. This general theme lets you take optional modules from the specialised courses in years 3 and 4.

You'll cover the essential principles of engineering, and learn about:

  • modelling and computing

  • systems design

  • law

  • management

In your third year you'll complete an individual research project and in year 4 you'll take part in a group design project. These projects are often linked to current research or topics that have practical relevance to industry.
