Brunel University London is a world top 100 engineering university. (Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2014/5.) We pioneered the concept of sandwich courses with a paid year working in industry. 50 years on we still pave the way when it comes to establishing links with the working world, and giving our students invaluable industrial and commercial insight. We are professionally accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Mechanical engineers deal with the design and production of the machines, systems and structures that are taken for granted in the modern world. The range and diversity of career choice is consequently tremendous. Our range of mechanical engineering courses is designed to meet the needs of industry and reflect our world-class research interests including: â?¢ energy and environmental engineering â?¢ internal combustion engines and their fuels â?¢ materials and manufacturing. Weâ??re here to make sure you make the most of this wealth of engineering opportunity. Mechanical engineering with aeronautics shares several of the aircraft design topics studied on our aerospace and aviation degrees. The course will introduce you to the exciting world of aeronautics and aerospace â?? an industry working at the frontiers of advanced technology. In the latter part of the course you will study aircraft aerodynamics, avionics, aircraft design and flight mechanics.
Level 1 Core: Fundamentals of solid body mechanics; fundamentals of thermofluids; analytical methods and skills; engineering materials and manufacturing and electrical machines; introduction to engineering design; mechanical laboratories, technical drawing and workshop experience. Level 2 Core: Solid body mechanics; thermofluids; computing, analytical methods, control and instrumentation; professional engineering applications and practice; design and analysis of mechanical systems and components. Level 3: Optional Work placement (for thick-sandwich mode of study). Level 3 Core: Major individual project; fundamentals and applications of numerical modelling; business and the environment; aircraft structures, stability and control; aircraft aerodynamics, propulsion systems and flight mechanics. Level 4 Core: Major group project; strategic management and enterprise; research methodology and innovation; advanced modelling and design; advanced thermofluids; advanced solid body mechanics.
Situated on the edge of London, Brunel University is a short journey from the vibrant capital, offering the perfect balance between cosmopolitan city living and a tight knit diverse community. The uni boasts well-known lecturers including Will Self, Benjamin Zephaniah and Fay Weldon. Brunel is home to world-class sports facilities, including one of the few 132m indoor sprint tracks in the country.
