A global skills shortage continues to ensure engineers remain among the most in-demand professional. EngineeringUK has estimated there to be an annual shortfall of 55,000 skilled workers in the UK alone.

Mechanical Engineers develop and design the components and machinery used in manufacturing, construction, water, power, health and transport. In recent years, for example, they have contributed significantly to the development of wind turbines and to enhance the competitive performance of sport cycles.

This programme is aimed at both new graduates and engineering professionals who wish to develop advanced skills in thermofluids, metrology, design and technology.

You’ll study the principles of engineering, physics and materials science, alongside the design and analysis, modelling and simulation, manufacturing and maintenance of mechanical systems.

The University’s facilities provide access to a wide range of engineering software used for computer aided design, finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics. You will have the chance to model and analyse engineering systems using stress analysis, heat transfer, dynamics and fluid mechanics.

Our strong links with local industry, which include Jaguar Land Rover, Aston Martin, UNIPART, SAIC, Prodrive, Airbus, Tata, GKN, Ricardo and MIRA, provide opportunities for industry engagement working on actual projects. You will get opportunities to put into practice what you learn, through solving real-life problems.
