About the Department
The mechanical engineering education we offer is designed to turn the brightest, most ambitious students into twenty-first century engineers. Our courses will develop your knowledge, skills, imagination and creativity.
We also work continuously with industry to ensure that our courses – and the facilities, and equipment you will learn to use – remain relevant to the profession.
You will gain a true appreciation of manufacturing through project work which requires use of manual and automated manufacture tools in our student workshop.
There are also opportunities to engage directly with research taking place in the Department in areas such as sustainable energy, medical engineering, robotics, structural integrity, advanced manufacturing and future transport technologies.
