Course description

This course gives you an excellent grounding in the knowledge and experience of the most fundamental of all engineering disciplines, preparing you for a variety of careers in engineering, technology, business and management.

Years 1 and 2 are common with those of the MEng course in Mechanical Engineering, therefore subject to satisfactory performance, it is possible for students to transfer from the BEng course to the MEng course at the end of year 2.

Your final year emphasises individual work - students undertake a major investigative project, which may include undertaking scientific experiments and investigations as well as researching into the topic to produce a detailed project report.
