About this course

Learn how to use immense computational power to solve engineering challenges and improve people's lives. You'll explore the cutting-edge software used to design complex technologies and learn how to code your own models and simulations. This course will prepare you for a career as a chartered engineer.

Design is a crucial factor in the engineering industries and most design methods now use computers. This course provides a solid foundation in mechanical engineering along with specialist knowledge in the growing fields of computational engineering and engineering design.

You'll gain practical experience with our design workshops and studios. You'll do a variety of projects, including building a fully functioning 3D printer.

As part of this course you can:

  • use our range of engineering facilities

  • get a solid introduction to relevant subjects such as mathematics and mechanics

  • take an additional year-long paid placement in an engineering organisation

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • choose to study specialist areas, including aircraft structural design and orthopaedic biomechanics

  • go on site visits to experience engineering in practice

You'll put your skills into practice with an individual project and final year group design project, where you can work with students from other engineering specialisms.

We're a designated university for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS).

This course is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and offers a route to chartered status.
