Course Information

Mechanical engineers work in almost every sector you can think of – energy, transport, aviation, robotics, pharmaceuticals and the motor or marine industries. Wherever you want to go, a degree in mechanical engineering can help to get you there. Our course is practical, with substantial laboratory and workshop activities. And your individual final-year project will be a 'design-make-test' project that simulates the tasks and challenges mechanical engineers face.
