The BSc (Hons) Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering course at Southampton Solent University is designed for students who wish to be involved in modern manufacturing and mechanical engineering systems.

Subjects such as manufacturing systems and strength of materials are complemented by elements of business strategy. Not only will you develop the decision making skills sought by employers and emerge as a business-aware graduate with theoretical and practical knowledge of modern manufacturing and mechanical engineering systems, you will also gain the honours degree qualification required to achieve the status of Incorporated Engineer.

Our emphasis on hands-on learning – including case studies, laboratory work, seminars and group exercises – means that your development will be measured through practical projects rather than by exams alone. This vocational focus helps to maintain our high rate of graduate employability.

The third year project is a major element of the course, representing one-third of the final year marks, and will allow you to build on the skills you have developed in the first two years.
