Mechanical Engineering

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.

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.
