This course has been designed to be relevant to the needs of modern industry and to produce graduates who have the personal and intellectual qualities to be successful in their chosen careers. By the end of the course, you will be equipped to play leading roles in a professional capacity in both industry and academia, and thus able to deal with issues at the forefront of our discipline. Mechanical Engineering is a professional discipline that is hugely important in day-to-day life, and supplies solutions to a vast range of sectors. Mechanical engineers design, analyse and manufacture machines that move using gears: from giant earth-moving machines and huge turbines in power stations, to all types of road and rail vehicles, space rockets and satellites. In the medical sector, Mechanical Engineers supply solutions in terms of life-saving equipment, life-enhancing artificial limbs, pacemakers, micro scale pumps and incubators. We also make industrial robots; the machines that make other products.
