Welcome and Foundation Week Information

Welcome to the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering

Welcome from the Head of Department

On behalf of the Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace Engineering I am delighted to welcome you as a new student. The department is a community of scholars working across more than a dozen subject areas, and we are sure you will benefit from the breadth and vitality that is possible in a department of this size, with world-class teaching and in-depth specialist expertise available to you.

 We will work hard during Welcome Week and in the first semester to make your transition to undergraduate study as smooth as possible.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to the school in person in September.
