If you're interested in Mechanical Engineering and want to know how things are designed, manufactured and made to work, this is the course for you. Through consultation with local employers, we have developed a highly industry relevant programme that delivers the knowledge, experience and general transferable skills required for employment in this broad and exciting field.

Our BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering programme will provide you with the core and specialist principles of this highly employable engineering field to furnish you with the required skills to enjoy an exciting career path within this diverse sector. You will have the opportunity to follow a Mechanical pathway, after you have sampled core engineering subjects.

The course consists of core common modules at level 4 and then develops with more subject specialisms later in the programme. Opportunities to explore software and practical subject areas such as computer aided design, controls & simulation and computational fluid dynamics are embedded within the modules to enable a blend of practical and theoretical experiences to enhance employability.

A current shortage of skilled mechanical engineers means there are excellent career opportunities for talented engineering graduates as design, production and project engineers within a variety of sectors. Many of our graduates are now employed by major companies such as EDF Energy, Westinghouse Springfields, BAE Systems, Airbus, NIC, GCE and Ford Motor Company as mechanical design, production, project or research and development engineers.

This information comes from the National Student Survey, an annual student survey of final-year students. You can use this to see how satisfied students studying this subject area at this university, are (not the individual course).

We calculate a mean rating of all responses to indicate whether this is high, medium or low compared to the same subject area at other universities.

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?
