Application and selection

How to apply

Apply through UCAS .

Advice to applicants

Factors contributing to a successful application include:

  • Past academic performance
  • Predicted academic performance
  • Enthusiasm for, and realistic grasp of, chosen degree programme
  • Evidence of interpersonal skills and non-academic interests/achievements

Further guidance on how to apply can be found on our How to Apply webpage .

How your application is considered

Applications are considered on the basis of each UCAS application.

Strong examination results are the main factor in admitting students to our courses, but we also consider other information to ensure we admit students with the most outstanding potential. This is assessed within a structured framework and includes both prior and predicted grades. Your referee should give realistic grade predications for all qualifications you are currently studying at the top of their reference.

If you attend a non-UK school or college that does not provide predicted grades your referee should explain this policy within their reference.

Interview requirements

We do not hold interviews but UK-based applicants who receive an offer will be invited to a Virtual Webinar, or On-Campus Visit Day, which generally take place on Wednesday afternoons from December to March.

Deferrals

Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation.

Deferred entry is granted at the discretion of admissions staff and for one year only. In exceptional circumstances, it may be granted for two years at the maximum.

Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date. Your English Language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

We normally guarantee a place in the current year should an applicant's gap year plans change. However, this is subject to availability of places.

Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications

If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process.

If you are planning to re-sit your final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but may require further information in order to make an informed judgment.

Policy for applicants who take their examinations in more than one sitting

We are happy to consider applicants who are taking their examinations in different sittings, provided they were taken over the standard two-year period.

Re-applications

If you applied in the previous year and were not successful you may apply again.

Your application will be considered against the standard course criteria for the current year of entry. In your new application, you should demonstrate how your application has improved.

Kindly note, we may draw upon all information from your previous applications, or any previous registrations at the University as a Student, when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.

If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through Clearing, you are required to meet the Clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and Clearing the places will be subject to availability.

Transfers

Transfers from other institutions are considered on a case-by-case basis.

Those into the second year are usually not considered. If you wish to enquire about whether you may be eligible to apply for entry into the second year, please contact the Admissions Team with full details of your qualifications and copies of your transcripts to date.

Course details

Course description

This course is identical to the Mechanical Engineering MEng, but includes an additional year spent working in industry.

The MEng Mechanical Engineering will give 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. 

Many students find it highly beneficial, both to their university education and to their subsequent employability, to integrate a substantial period in industry within your degree. We offer you the chance to do this with a structured placement year in industry, which would normally be completed after the third year of the Mechanical Engineering degree course (with students returning after their placement to complete the 4th year of study). However, you may opt to organise your placement after the second year.

During the placement year you will be supervised by the host company and your progress is monitored by the university.

We use a variety of teaching styles that reflect the diversity of topics covered in modern mechanical engineering, and you will develop the range of skills and expertise that a professional engineer must possess.

As in BEng, the third year features an individual project - you will undertake a major investigative project by yourself. This may require scientific experiments and investigations.  The successful completion of this project is a necessary condition for eventual professional registration. 

The final year of the MEng features a major design group project, as well as further opportunities of choosing specialist subjects, in addition to core units. 

Aims

computer cluster
Our computer clusters are equipped with specialist engineering and design software

The course aims to provide you with an education that covers the breadth of this diverse subject, imparting the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills so that you can operate effectively in your initial appointment and develop your career: 

  • Develop strong intellectual and practical skills to critically analyse, investigate and solve mechanical engineering problems
  • Develop a high degree of competence in the use and adaptation of existing methods, tools and techniques and the application of engineering principles
  • Instil creativity in addressing problems relating to engineering components and systems
  • Develop a high degree of competence in engineering design, experimentation, technologies of manufacturing and effective management of companies
  • Develop skills in the use of computers, software packages, team working, communication, time management and independent learning
  • In your year in industry, provide knowledge and experience of the practice of mechanical engineering in industry and the operation of engineering companies.

Special features

Foundation Year available

You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our  foundation course first

Teaching and learning

At Manchester you will be taught by academic staff who are leading experts in mechanical engineering, in a diverse and inclusive learning environment.

We use a combination of lectures, tutorial classes, practical laboratory sessions and computer-based sessions.  

There is a design project each year, which involves teamwork in small groups, and allows you to apply and develop your problem-solving and project management skills. 

In the third year you will undertake an individual project, allowing you to pursue a particular subject or application area in greater depth.

Coursework and assessment

Most course units are assessed through an examination (at the end of the semester) and coursework which is undertaken throughout the year.  Parts of the coursework are, in many instances, associated with practical laboratory sessions, whilst others may be based on problem sheets, reports etc. A few subjects, for example Design, are assessed purely on coursework. For detailed information about how different subjects are assessed, please see the course unit specifications below.

Course unit details

Key engineering knowledge and skills are taught in a core syllabus throughout all years of the course.

We view design as an especially important activity, as it integrates the engineering topics across the degree course. Years 1 and 2 also include compulsory workshop practice sessions.

Years 3 and 4 also offer a range of options, so that you can select subjects to suit your individual needs, interests and career aspirations.

Options cover many theoretical and practical aspects of industrially relevant topics and include some of the latest developments in mechanical engineering.

An individual research project must be completed in Year 3 and a group design project in Year 4.

Please note: the year out in industry is typically completed after Year 3, with students returning to complete Year 4 of study.
