What is mechanical engineering?
Mechanical engineering involves the design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything that has moveable parts. If an object is human-made, mechanical engineers will have been involved at some stage during its development and manufacture. This means mechanical engineers can find employment in a wide variety of engineering companies, spanning manufacturing, design, research and development and production.

This course

Gain a significant advantage in the engineering job market from day one, by fulfilling the academic requirements of Chartered Engineer (CEng) level. Employers know you have the additional knowledge, professional expertise and personal skills that will make you an asset in the workplace.

You develop your intellectual skills to analyse and solve mechanical engineering problems, and to design creative and innovative products and devices using modern technology. We also introduce you to the business and economic world in which commercial engineering enterprises work.

During this course, you use all of the industry standard tools and equipment needed to ensure that you’re ready for industry. You have access to a wide range of hardware and equipment, including computer-aided design (CAD) software such as ProEngineer, and analysis software such as Fluent, Abacus and Matlab.

Other specialist facilities include • rapid prototyping equipment to create accurate prototypes of product designs from CAD-generated information and a 5-axis machining centre which completes the CAD/CAM cycle
• robotics laboratory to study computer-controlled manufacturing systems
• automotive workshop for engine testing
• wind tunnel for thermofluid and aerodynamic studies/research
• flight simulator

Once you have developed your knowledge and skills on campus, you can take a one-year paid work placement in year three. Previous students have completed placements with companies such as • McLaren Racing Limited • Bosch Thermotechnology • Rolls-Royce • BMW • EDF Energy • Agusta Westland • Pirelli Tyres Limited • Cummins Turbo Technologies • Airbus UK • Lockheed Martin.

Placements allow you to apply your learning, develop new and existing skills, and increase your industry knowledge and experience, making you more attractive to potential employers. Typical salaries are £12,000-£18,000.

You also complete a major group project that incorporates master's level engineering and advanced studies of mechanical engineering.

Key areas of study
Key areas include • engineering materials and manufacturing processes • computer-aided design and manufacture • fracture mechanics • computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer • finite element analysis • dynamics and control.
