This Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) course is the traditional route for those who wish to study Mechanical Engineering at University. You'll study for three years full-time and will enjoy studying both at University Centre at Blackburn College as well as in The Futures Centre -a new state-of-the-art development in Blackburn equipped with specialist electrical laboratory spaces and workshop areas. This Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) is specifically concerned with design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of just about anything that has moveable parts. As a result, there are job opportunities for mechanical engineers in practically every field of work, transport, health, defence, manufacturing, entertainment, finance, publishing, building, design and research, to name but a few.

Mechanical engineers work on the design and analysis of mechanical systems such as automobiles, aircraft, heating and cooling systems and industrial machinery. At University Centre at Blackburn College we have a strong history of training tomorrow's engineering professionals. We have strong links with industry in the North West and industry experts frequently contribute to the programme in the form of visiting lecturers or subject specific tutors. From 2013 students on this programme will enjoy studying in our brand new £7million Futures Centre - a science and technology development on the Blackburn College campus featuring state-of-the-art workspaces and workshops for engineering students.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
