Mechanical engineering is the basis of just about anything that has movable parts, which includes areas like transport (automotive, railway, aerospace), renewable energy, and manufacturing. These areas will continue to be important to the UK economy and to all developed economies.
The taught part of this course consists of six compulsory modules. An individual industrial project allows you to extend your knowledge by exploring an area that interests you, whilst giving experience of the way in which a complete product or process requirement would be addressed.
The PgDip covers a selection of taught modules, with no individual project. Students may progress to an MSc given good results.
You will study a range of modules as part of your course, some examples of which are listed below.
