How You Study

The Mechanical Engineering programe utilises problem- and project-based learning. We aim to narrow the gap between employers' requirements and our graduates' skills to improve employability and help facilitate their transition from higher education to work.

The first year of the degree is designed to provide a foundation in engineering theory and practice. Students are supported in their development of important technical skills, such as computer-aided design and workshop skills. The second and third years offer a range of specialist modules. At each stage of the course, there are opportunities to practise and develop engineering skills on real-life problems through project work.

Students on the MEng course can go on to study more advanced modules and learn about project management, teamwork, and leadership, as well as completing an extended group project.

Career paths

Professional engineers are in demand in the UK and overseas. Graduates may pursue a variety of career paths in areas such as control systems, power and energy, and mechanical and materials engineering. The University's strong industry links give Lincoln graduates enhanced opportunities for placements, mentoring, and recruitment, including at Siemens Energy in Lincoln. Other graduate destinations include Rolls-Royce, Qinetiq, JCB, and Jaguar Landrover.
