This is for you if... you want to understand how new technologies are improving the performance of mechanical systems. The MEng is a direct route to Chartered Engineer status. Professional engineers have a high degree of specialist knowledge but increasingly they use a broad approach to problem solving across a range of engineering disciplines. This is coupled with an awareness of environmental, social, legal, economic and regulatory aspects of the problem at hand. Mechanical systems are at the core of the manufacturing, process and service industries including: • Advanced engines, traction and braking systems for vehicles • Aircraft, satellites and deep space probes • Biomedical technologies such as imagers, ventilators and prosthetics • Air and water pollution control equipment • Transportation and mass transit systems • Industrial plant for the processing of raw materials and for power generation Building on a broad foundation of engineering studies in Year 1, you will develop specific expertise and skills in mechanisms and vibrations, structures, mechanical materials, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics.

Leicester boasts so many attributes it is impossible to list them all, but students choose to study here because Leicester feels like home the moment you set foot on campus. Our Major/Minor degrees enable you to create your own degree where you can study a core area in depth (your major subject), while also exploring an additional area (your minor subject). Our Students' Union is home to the O2 Academy Leicester bringing great bands and club nights to our building!
