Mechanical engineering touches virtually every aspect of modern life. It’s at the forefront of developing new technologies for a multitude of industries including transport, healthcare, construction, and robotics.
This Mechanical Engineering (Hons) at De Montfort University focuses on a range of topics including computer-aided design (CAD), thermodynamics and heat transfer, solid mechanics, dynamics and control, materials engineering and processing, and product development.
Our teaching and content are influenced by our research in aerodynamics, fluid systems, transportation, manufacturing and sustainable development.
You can study Mechanical Engineering either as a three-year BEng (Hons) programme, or a four-year integrated master’s MEng (Hons). At the end of year three, you have the option of graduating with a BEng (Hons) or continuing for a further year for a MEng (Hons), subject to meeting the progression requirements.
Mechanical Engineering students can go on to work in industries including aerospace, automotive, defence, and energy, as well as work in the product manufacturing and food industries.
The diverse range of specialist modules on the course helps students to develop skills required for a range of industries, providing opportunities to also pursue careers in broader areas of design, research and development, marketing, sales, production management and quality control.
Graduates of this course have gone on to work for companies such as Toyota, Cummins Generator Technologies, Ricardo (McLaren Performance Engines), and JCB.
