About MEng Mechanical Engineering with a Year in Industry
The programme is well balanced, covering a wide range of topics in engineering science and engineering practice.
Our curriculum embeds a diverse set of professional engineering and management skills spanning four core thematic areas:
- design and manufacture
- dynamics and control
You will spend your third year applying the knowledge gained in the first two years of study in an industrial environment. There is no direct entry onto this course but you can transfer from our other mechanical engineering courses if you reach a high academic standard and are successful at an interview with industry. Places are limited and highly competitive.
The first two years are common across our mechanical engineering degrees. Years one and two cover the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering and include lectures, laboratories and design classes as well as short projects in modelling and manufacturing.
Following your third-year industry placement, the fourth year builds on this foundation, applying the principles covered in years one and two to more realistic and complex engineering applications. A major element of the fourth year is an open-ended individual research project, which requires independent and creative thinking.
In the fifth year, you will select from specialist options which provide an insight into state-of-the-art engineering research. You will also complete a major group project, requiring effective teamwork to address a substantial open-ended technical challenge.
