About

Engineering has shaped modern society and personal lives in a way that no other discipline has ever done. Studying Mechanical Engineering including a Foundation Year (Hons) at University of Kent will allow you to be part of this revolution, and to gain the knowledge and skills to make your own mark in this exciting field.

Overview

The Foundation Year aims to extend access to university education to students from a wide variety of educational backgrounds and age groups and prepares these students for our three-year Engineering degrees. 

This Mechanical Engineering including a Foundation Year (Hons) at University of Kent is for students who do not have the grades they need for direct entry on to our BEng programmes. On successful completion of your Foundation Year, you can go to the Mechanical Engineering degree or the Mechanical Engineering with a Year in Industry degree. 

Mechanical Engineering is a fundamental discipline that is responsible for the design and the development of mechanical systems and it is vital in many tech industries. At the University of Kent, we focus in the modern applications of Mechanical Engineering, e.g. robotics, assistive technology, smart materials and autonomous vehicles. 

Our research led degrees mean our graduates can work at the forefront of the major areas of mechanical engineering, combining theory with practical and project work, turning ideas into real systems.

We have strong links with the Royal Academy of Engineering and with institutions that provide accreditation to university degrees (Institution of Engineering and Technology and Institution of Mechanical Engineers). Our engineering students' work has won international prizes and our visiting industrial professors contribute to a strong industrial relevance of our courses.

Career

Our graduates find employment in a huge range of sectors such as aerospace and automative industries, the armed forces and the Ministry of Defence, construction and building services, energy utilities, government agencies, manufacturing industries, medical engineering, oil and gas industries, process industries, the public sector, research establishments and transport including road and railways.
