Undergraduate Programme

BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering

Our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering programme has been devised to allow students to explore underlying scientific principles, advanced design technology, problem-solving and management areas, that are essential for being a successful engineer against a modern interdisciplinary engineering landscape. Addressing the field of study holistically, the design-led curriculum ensures understanding through application by providing students an opportunity to engage in engineering design and analysis projects.

Mechanical engineering is one of the broadest engineering disciplines. They deal with anything that moves, from components to machines to the human bodydesigning, developing, building and testing. This ensures that prototypes function safely, efficiently and reliably, all at a competitive cost.

The qualification earned on completion of BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering is awarded by Liverpool John Moores University (UK), and all official degree certificates and transcripts are issued directly by LJMU.

Students who successfully complete the programme of study at Oryx Universal College in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University will be invited to participate in the annual graduation ceremony organised by Oryx Universal College in Qatar.
