    What is the programme about?
    This new honours degree programme has been designed to provide students with a broad understanding of Mechanical Engineering. Mechanical Engineers are involved with almost every aspect of our daily lives, innovating and designing machines from computers to power generators to medical equipment. A Mechanical Engineering qualification offers graduates a huge variety of career paths across a wide range of industries.

    This programme focuses on the practical aspects of Mechanical Engineering, such as Computer Aided Design, Engineering Processes and Maintenance, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Plant Engineering, Instruments and Control, etc. Mechanical Engineers apply sophisticated computer based tools and equipment such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), robotics and computer controlled manufacturing systems to aid the quality and speed of machinery production. This programme is taught with a practical, hands-on approach, giving students the skills needed for the employment market.

    We welcome applications from holders of apprenticeships in the mechanical trades, and from persons with manufacturing backgrounds, that wish to upgrade their skills and qualifications. Direct entry into Year 2 is possible for suitably qualified applicants with Craft qualifications or manufacturing backgrounds.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    If you are curious by nature and believe that you would enjoy working with complex machinery, then this honours degree programme is for you. You will learn how to build, repair, modify, design and fault-find modern mechanical systems and technologies. The programme has a significant amount of practical work involved and you will acquire excellent skills and knowledge. ​
