Mechanical engineers are essential to the workings of the modern world, combining imagination and technology to offer innovative solutions across society and industry. They work across all industrial sectors, developing and manufacturing well-designed products through efficient manufacturing processes.

Choosing the MEng programme offers you a quicker, more direct route to Chartered Engineer status than the BEng. It allows you to use the last two years to expand and strengthen your knowledge in mechanical engineering. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project.

An added advantage of this MEng Mechanical Engineering (International) course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. They include universities in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada and more.

The sandwich course option includes a year of industrial placement between your second and third years of study. This option will allow you to experience first-hand, a professional working environment. You'll be paid a salary during your placement and enhance your employability skills through direct experience in a relevant field.
