The Mechanical Engineering (Hons) programme is offered at Manchester Metropolitan University.
Year 1 will establish the fundamentals of engineering science, mathematics and practical and project skills in mechanical engineering. In Year 2, you will further develop your scientific and analytical skills through study of solid mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and engineering mathematics. You will take on a specialist role in a multi-disciplinary group project and start detailed planning of your career. Specialist options and projects in Year 3, all informed by the School of Engineering's active research and industrial partnerships, will give you experience of the latest engineering challenges faced by industry and society.
There is a national shortage of graduate engineers making our graduates highly sought after by employers.
There is also a high demand for design engineers and product designers in small to medium enterprises.
Engineering graduates enjoy one of the lowest unemployment rates and one of the best starting salaries.
Our recent graduates occupy a variety of roles in engineering consultancies, manufacturing, aircraft design and manufacture, automotive and railway engineering, steel manufacturing, naval engineering, water companies and the power and nuclear fuels industries.
Employers outside of engineering sectors also recognise the skills and problem-solving capacity of the engineering graduate, and there may be opportunities in sales, commissioning, finance, teaching and management as well as roles managing technology to support a range of organisations.
