On this BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering degree , you’ll learn the underlying elements of successful engineering science, manufacturing and design. You'll study solid mechanics and dynamics, and electrical and electronic principles, and specialise in more advanced subjects such as engineering programming and sustainable development.
You'll put everything you learn to practice using our industry-standard facilities, making sure you graduate with the skills you need to succeed in your career.
What you’ll experience
- Specialise in advanced subjects such as computer-aided design (CAD) engineering, sustainable product development and design for quality
- Put your skills to the test by building your own products in our manufacturing workshops
- Have to option to expand your learning and meet potential employers by completing your final-year project in industry
Work experience and career planning
With experience, you can expect to get a salary from £25,000 to £35,000 as a mechanical engineer and up to £40,000 as a manufacturing engineer. But you could also apply your skills to any number of roles in industries such as aerospace, oil refinery, machinery manufacture and plastics. All engineering roles are listed in the UK Government’s 'skills shortage list' – which means engineers are currently in high demand.
Graduating with a degree in mechanical and manufacturing engineering gives you all the skills to work in areas such as:
- product design
- manufacturing and installation
- project management
- research development
Our graduates have worked for companies such as:
- McLaren Formula One
- Royal Navy
- Cobra Engineering
What jobs can you do with a mechanical and manufacturing degree?
Roles you could go onto include:
- engineering officer
- automotive mechanical engineer
- design engineering
Other graduates have continued their studies at postgraduate level or set up successful businesses with help and support from the University.
Teaching methods on this course include:
- laboratory and project work
- Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) system activity
- independent study
How you're assessed
You’ll be assessed through:
- written coursework
- multiple-choice tests
- mini projects
- a major piece of supervised independent work
You’ll be able to test your skills and knowledge informally before you do assessments that count towards your final mark.
You can get feedback on all practice and formal assessments so you can improve in the future.
The way you’re assessed will depend on the modules you select throughout your course. Here's an example from a previous year of how students on this course were typically assessed:
- Year 1 students: 84% by written exams and 16% by coursework
- Year 2 students: 56% by written exams, 13% by practical exams and 31% by coursework
- Year 3 students: 40% by written exams and 60% by coursework
