About this program

Engineering: Mechanical Engineering (BEng)

The BEng Mechanical Engineering program is intended to provide students with a thorough grounding in mechanical engineering science and its application in design and the solution of a range of engineering problems. In addition, students will develop knowledge in a suitable range of manufacturing processes and materials. The program will also consider environmental aspects of design and technology and will enable students to gain a range of skills, relevant to a broad range of employment opportunities.

We have prepared students for a range of employment opportunities in small and large companies. Examples of companies who have employed previous graduates are Corus, Ford, Schaeffler, Robert Bosch and Visteon. UK manufacturing offers well-paid careers to engineering and science graduates. Despite this, many sources document the shortage of engineers in UK industry, meaning that graduates from these courses have many options open to them.

Our BEng(Hons) Mechanical Engineering (Full-Time 3 Years; EngC ref 15964) and BEng(Hons) Mechanical Engineering with a year in industry (Full-Time 4 Years; EngC ref 15965) are accredited as meeting the academic requirement, in part, for Chartered Engineer (CEng in Part) registration by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Admission requirements


112 points (previously 280) from numerate or technical A Level subjects, to include Maths or Physics at grade B or above. Maths GCSE at grade C is also required. Relevant experience may be considered.

Relevant industrial experience can also be considered when determining eligibility for entry requirements.
