What will I learn?

**Course overview**- Spent your life taking things apart to see how they work? This could be the course for you. Mechanical Engineering teaches you to design objects and systems with motion.- Mechanical engineers use their knowledge of fundamental engineering principles like mechanics, materials, thermo-fluids and computer-aided design to analyse and design objects and systems with motion.- Our degree combines the fundamentals of traditional courses in this subject with our long experience of providing a rounded education to graduates. This ensures you’re prepared to work in a range of industrial sectors.- You’ll also develop skills in user needs and business plan development. There’s an optional placement route to spend a year in industry between Year 2 and Year 3.- This course is informed by our Advanced Digital Manufacturing Technology (ADMT) research centre and the Jost Institute of Tribotechnology.**Why study with us**- Benefit from the latest high-quality equipment available in our new £35m Engineering Innovation Centre featuring an additive manufacturing (3D printing) lab, rapid prototyping, CNC workshop, computing labs and more.- Mechanical Engineering is in the top 20 in the UK with over 90% of students satisfied overall with their course according to National Student Survey 2020. Plus, we’re also 2nd in the UK for overall ‘Learning and Resources’.- Radically enhance your employability with an optional 48-week industry placement.**Further information**After completing three years of full-time study you’ll have the option to graduate with a BEng (Hons) degree (it will take four years to reach this stage if you choose to go on a 48-week industrial placement in-between Years 2 and 3). Or you can choose to undertake an additional year of advanced study and graduate with an MEng (Hons) degree instead (this normally takes four years to complete in all, or five years with an industrial placement).
