With its enormous range of applications, mechanical engineering can offer a highly satisfying career. You'll work with the latest technology, learning to create engineering solutions and systems that have implications in almost every area of modern industry.
Broad-based initially, the course allows you to specialise in later years, and features a 20 week work placement that will gain you both industry experience and valuable contacts that may lead to future employment.
Ideal if you're a natural problem solver, this course is one of our most popular.
Beginning with a general grounding, the course will introduce you to engineering principles and ensure you have a grasp of the basic skills involved before progressing into areas such as thermodynamic systems and mechanics of materials. Once into the final two years, you'll learn to apply and develop these skills, becoming proficient in the analysis and design of a range of engineering systems and applications, ready for a professional role in the industry.
