Why this Mechanical Engineering with Materials Engineering course at the University of Strathclyde ?

Mechanical engineers are recognised for their knowledge and skills in conceiving, designing, implementing and operating devices, machines, engines and energy systems.

Graduates from the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering - which is consistently rated in the top 10 such departments in the UK - are part of a new breed of engineer who can take on challenges ranging from traditional industries to areas such as new materials, sustainable development and aerospace.

Study abroad is an option for all our courses. The named degree (Mechanical Engineering with International Study) ensures that the international study experience is recognised in the title of the degree award.


With skills including analytical, numeracy and problem solving, Mechanical Engineering graduates are suited to a wide range of career opportunities. Combining these studies with the ‘Materials’ option strengthens employment prospects further. 

Recent Mechanical Engineering graduates have been recruited into areas such as oil and gas, subsea, ship building and defence industries. Some of the graduates’ job titles include:

  • Production Engineer
  • Projects Engineer
  • Subsea Engineer
  • Nuclear Graduate Trainee
  • Mechanical Development Engineer

Some of our students have also continued to postgraduate study or research.
