About this program

Mechanical Engineering BEng

Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life. It’s at the forefront of developing new technologies for a multitude of industries including transport, healthcare, construction, and robotics.

This course focuses on a range of topics including computer-aided design (CAD), thermodynamics and heat transfer, solid mechanics, dynamics and control, materials engineering and processing, and product development.

Our teaching and content are influenced by our research in aerodynamics, fluid systems, transportation, manufacturing and sustainable development.

You can study Mechanical Engineering either as a three-year BEng (Hons) program, or a four-year integrated master’s MEng (Hons). At the end of year three, you have the option of graduating with a BEng (Hons) or continuing for a further year for a MEng (Hons), subject to meeting the progression requirements.
