Mechanical engineers are involved in the design and manufacture of almost everything. As a mechanical engineer you could become involved in design, manufacture, research, development, management or marketing. Our courses share a common first two years, which means you have the freedom to switch courses up until the end of your second year.

We also teach Product Design MDes, BSc and contribute to the multidisciplinary Mechatronics and Robotics MEng, BEng course.
