Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons)
Our BEng Mechanical Engineering provides an excellent alternative to an MEng course if you'd prefer to study for three years rather than four. Many students choose this course as they would like to enter the workplace earlier, while others continue their engineering education to an MSc.

This degree gives you a solid grounding in mechanical engineering. It covers all the essentials, with an emphasis on modelling and design. You'll be introduced to business and management in an engineering context, and you'll complete an individual project in an area that interests you.

In the first five semesters, you'll follow a core syllabus in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, mathematics and management. Modules cover mathematics, applied dynamics, mechanics of fluids, mechanics of solids, applied thermodynamics, mechanical behaviour of materials, and electrical and electronic engineering.

In your third year you'll tailor your degree to your own interests, choosing from optional modules and exploring a topic of your choice for an individual project.

This is a practical course: our students learn by doing. You'll apply what you've learnt in the lecture theatre to engineering problems and experiments. You'll have the chance to manufacture and prototype your designs. You'll also develop the transferable skills employers look for, such as communication, project management and time management skills.

Depending on your performance, you might be able to switch between our degrees. For example, you may be able to switch to a BEng course with a year in industry at the end of your first year, or to one of our MEng courses at the end of your second year.

All our students get involved in week-long projects that develop the skills you'll need as a successful engineer. There's the Global Engineering Challenge in your first year, where you'll find creative solutions to real-world problems with engineers of different disciplines, and Engineering You're Hired! during your second year.
