About this course


Course option

3years

Full-time | 2019

This course has been developed to offer a balance of academic and industrial knowledge to meet the needs of key employers within the North East region along with national and international businesses. This course aims to help you develop a range of skills, contributing to the region's competitiveness and to close the skills gap of future engineers both nationally and internationally. The first year of this degree provides you with a multi-disciplinary theoretical, simulation and practical experience focusing on engineering mathematics, 2-D CAD and drawing systems, electrical science, mechanical science and mechatronics, along with practical hand-on manufacturing experience of using machine tools and fabrication. The second year of study will build upon previous knowledge and experience and project management, 3D computer aided design, advanced mechanical science, mechanical power transmission and engineering design. In your third year of study you explore engineering principles in a range of applied mechanical applications, manufacturing systems and processes, modelling and analysis and product development. The third year of the course will also consider practical experience including destructive and non-destructive testing, finite element analysis and fracture mechanics. This course is mapped against the academic requirements of the Engineering Council UK-Spec for Incorporated Engineer (IENG) status and students are encouraged to join the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as student affiliated member. Student membership of the IMechE is free of charge for the duration of the course and provides additional benefits such as specialist lectures, visits and access to a wide range of journal article, publications and an online engineering handbook. As part of our work-ready guarantee you will be given the opportunity to work towards EngTech or IEng professional status with the Engineering Council, through a regulatory body. To further develop your work-ready skills you will be given the opportunity to visit various engineering companies throughout your studies and you will undertake a series of industrial training courses to gain vital first-hand experience of how engineering theory is put into practice. A degree in mechanical manufacturing engineering opens many industry doors and you can choose from varied career options in wide range of industries, such as design, manufacturing, military services, aerospace, automotive, rail, control, renewables energy, subsea applications and specialist measurement techniques. The majority of our graduates progress to work for an engineering company or continue in higher education and go on to study MEng or MSc qualifications. Our students work in diverse engineering companies like the NHS, Drager Safety, Gates Power, Rolls Royce, The Reece Group, Spincraft, Quick Hydraulics, Transmission Dynamics and many more. Academic progression is available via an appropriate Masters degree.

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?
