  • The School is part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
  • Engineering and Product Design is on of the Divisions from forms the School.
  • Aims of BEngTo offer study pathways relevant to Aeronautical Engineering, Automotive Engineering and, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, which draw upon the industrial and research expertise of the School.To provide students with a broad engineering educational base with an emphasis on core mechanical engineering subjects (thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, dynamics, control, manufacturing, electronics, electrical machines, mechanics, materials, computing and design), which graduates can use to build careers in industry, research, education or the service sector.To provide an engineering education in which the emphasis is placed on the integration of analytical tools and application of practical skills through design exercises, case studies, and projects.To develop students’ skills so that they are able to effectively utilise the latest technologies, including computer-based tools for design, modelling and simulation.Aims of MEngThe above andTo provide a MEng programme that fulfils the educational requirement for Chartered Engineer status. Preparing graduates for high level careers in industry, research, consultancy or the service sector by developing students’ versatility and depth of understanding enabling them to deal with new problems in different areas of engineering, provide technical and managerial leadership and implement changes in technology. Modules and Assessment6 modules x 20 credits 120 Credits per yearFor BEng(Hons) you need 360 CreditsFor MEng you need 480 CreditsExaminations and coursework in most modules
  • Possibility of obtaining at least 1 to 8 awardsEFY to PhD = 7 years
  • Mark Hindle - one that we kept for 7 years (EFY to PhD).

  • Industrial Placements – Companies taking placements in the recent past.
  • For the Aeronautical Engineers:Compressible fluid mechanics is the key to this helping to generate over half of the thrust due to management of the flow over the inlet spikes.This topic is covered in the 3rd year module Advanced Fluid Mechanics.Mechanical Engineers should be interested in both.
