This course is available at BEng Hons and MEng Level. This course if offered at the Jordanstown campus by the Faculty of Computing and Engineering. Modern technology involves an increasingly complex and challenging range of research, development and design skills applied in a wide range of industries such as automotive, aerospace, medical instrumentation, domestic and leisure products. These MEng/BEng Hons Mechanical Engineering courses are designed for those wanting to become chartered engineers. The MEng course is accredited for CEng status by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the BEng Hons course is also accredited for CEng status, subject to the appropriate further learning. Graduates from both programmes are equipped to enter a variety of mechanical engineering areas, such as; design and consultancy, materials technology, manufacturing and project management, process engineering and maintenance. The courses place an emphasis on individual and team projects providing the opportunity for hands-on involvement and an understanding of engineering materials, processes, devices and systems. Analytical and communication skills are developed with an emphasis on computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacture (CAM). The skills and knowledge acquired are applied to a wide range of real-life engineering problems.
Located in Northern Ireland, Ulster University is spread across four campuses in Belfast, Coleraine, Jordanstown and Magee. The university has one of the highest employment rates in the UK, with over 92% of graduates finding work within six months of finishing their studies.
