This accredited mechanical engineering course at Nottingham encompasses a broad foundation in engineering science and engineering design, as well as the opportunity to develop interpersonal and management skills. Our optional modules will allow you to specialise and focus your learning to your strengths and interests. You will get hands-on experience in our workshops, turning designs into reality and conducting investigations and experiments in our well-equipped labs to complement theoretical learning. Our strong links with companies such as Rolls Royce, Ford, BP and Shell guarantee that our teaching is relevant and meaningful.
The science subjects studied include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics and electro-mechanical systems. In design, the emphasis is on project work and in both the first and second years, you will undertake a design, make and test project, which you will manufacture in our dedicated student workshop.
