Study Mechanical Engineering (Hons) at the Edinburgh Napier University and gain the opportunity to enter an exciting and varied field of engineering, allowing you to design and develop machinery we use every day including vehicles, building, healthcare and even space technology.
We will provide you with an introduction to engineering principles, ensuring you grasp the basic skills involved before progressing into more specialised areas such as thermodynamic systems and mechanics of materials.
The course focuses on learning engineering principles and practices, as well as computing skills and principles of design, relating to a wide range of mechanical engineering systems.
You'll also cover control and instrumentation systems, engineering applications, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and dynamics and statics. You will gain skills in a wide range of up-to-date industry standard design software and applications.
In year 1 you will learn fundamental principles underpinning both mechanical and electrical engineering sciences, and hands-on practical skills.
You will then progress on to year 2, further developing these fundamental skills while beginning to specialise in thermodynamics and mechanical engineering, while considering control and automation systems, key elements of design and engineering management skills.
In year 3, you continue to specialise in your chosen field, gaining insight in to manufacturing systems, materials properties and selection, and detailed design and innovation practices and management.
In your final year you will work on your honours project as well as gaining enhanced skills in thermodynamics, dynamics and statics.
Mechanical engineering offers a rewarding salary for workers in the UK and beyond.
Mechanical engineers are in high demand and there are different fields of specialisation with this degree, so once graduated, you will have the freedom to choose from various career paths.
- Energy sector
Our course also equips you with key transferable skills in computing, maths and project management which will allow you to pursue a career in software, finance and management roles.
