Course description

Learn how engineering, manufacturing and management integrate in industry. Gain expertise in product creation processes from initial design to end product. Our course develops your understanding of the sciences and disciplines relating to manufacturing. You’ll study engineering, manufacturing and management in equal measures to understand their role in production processes. The integrated systems, processes and technologies used in advanced manufacturing industries will be explored throughout your degree. A grounding in core mechanical engineering principles is combined with physical science, mathematics and computing to develop your ability to analyse engineering systems. As part of your learning experience, you will investigate how to design, operate and control manufacturing systems. You’ll study specialist topics like project management, business processes, costing, and managing human resources. You can switch to any of our five mechanical engineering degrees up to the end of your second year. Group and individual projects encourage you to take imaginative approaches to solve complex engineering problems. You could explore new business or engineering technologies in areas such as sports and leisure equipment, medical devices, or data management. In your final year, you'll have the flexibility to choose from a range of specialist units. Our MEng degrees give you an in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and project work and fulfil the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer. Professional accreditation This course is accredited by the Engineering Council, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution for Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Graduates are in significant demand, so unemployment rates are well below the national graduate average and starting salaries are well above average. Much the most common industries for these graduates are now vehicle manufacture - there are not enough people with these degrees to go round and so the big employers tend to take the lion's share at the moment. But pretty much anywhere there is manufacturing, there are production engineers. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.
