Mechanical engineers shape our daily life, from heating systems to refrigerators to cars, yet they are in short supply across the world. Create exciting career opportunities with the Mechanical Engineering programme of the University of Salford.


In a Nutshell

With a focus on real-world problem solving, you’ll explore how to apply technology to advanced mechanical engineering design and application. Salford is a leading regional UK centre for engineering. Creating a gateway to professional status, the Mechanical Engineering programme of the University of Salford is designed to meet the requirements of the Engineering Councils Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP), so you'll be educated to the highest industry standards.

Our Mechanical Engineering courses scored 90% for overall satisfaction, and 94% for learning resources in the National Student Survey 2020 (University of Salford analysis of unpublished NSS 2020 data)

If you're unsure about this level of study, this course is also available with a Foundation Year entry route or as a standard Bachelor's degree.

You will:

  • Develop professional knowledge, design and analytical skills towards Chartered Engineer status
  • Study the relationships between microstructure and mechanical properties of materials, mechanisms of corrosion and corrosion protection
  • Gain an understanding of the concepts of engineering thermodynamics and finite element analysis
  • Explore further advanced modules in Engineering, taking your knowledge beyond Bachelor's level


On successful completion of the course, you’ll be closer to realising your ambition to work in mechanical engineering.

A mechanical engineering degree with Salford provides a fast-track entry to careers in a wide range of engineering roles. You may choose to focus your career in product design, manufacturing, or even the operation and maintenance of complex power stations. Opportunities can be found in many globalised industries, including automotives, aerospace, military and defence, petrochemicals, transport and information technology.
