Programme in detail

The programme follows the Mechanical Engineering BEng (H300) for the first two years.

In Years Three and Four students move on to study advanced engineering science and undertake a 300-hour individual research project on a topic of their choice. They can also choose their engineering specialism by selecting one of five thematic streams: biomedical engineering, materials engineering, manufacturing, management, or simulation and analytics. The most important element of the MEng programme is the two-year Capstone Project: a team project in which students design, build and race a single seat race car, a high speed bicycle or an underwater remotely operated vehicle; or in which students work with our industrial partners, alongside professional engineers, as they develop solutions to real industrial problems.

These projects are designed to transform student engineers into fledgling professionals: they are rewarding for the students, are valued by industry; and have been commended by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers.
