Course Information

Learn the fundamental skills and knowledge of a modern engineer. This course offers a comprehensive introduction to engineering, giving you the flexibility to work in a broad range of industries. Among the general topics, you’ll study engineering mathematics, materials and electrical science, mechanical science, manufacturing technology, computer-aided engineering and thermodynamics. During your MEng year, you’ll deepen your understanding of engineering through a selection of advanced modules. As with the BEng, you’ll get the chance to work on some impressive team projects, including designing a hovercraft, a Formula Student racing car and an unmanned aircraft. This course is the first step towards chartered engineer status.

  • The MEng in Mechanical Engineering is a broad subject and there have been thousands of successful UH graduates of this discipline working in all fields of engineering
  • You can apply your knowledge to typical mechanical projects such as the design of a hovercraft
  • You may join the automotive students and help design, build and race single-seater race car in the UK Formula Student Competition
  • You may join aerospace students on projects involving Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs), rocketry and space tourism
  • You will learn how to apply computer-aided engineering and industrial-standard software, recommended by the Automotive Industry Advisory Panel
  • Students from the School of Engineering and Technology have previously completed work placement years at companies including: Rolls Royce plc, BAE Systems, and RP Aero Systems
  • Recent Mechanical Engineering graduates have gone on to work at organisations including: Ocado, Ford and General Electric
