Mechanical engineers use their skills and knowledge in maths and science to design and manufacture new technology that functions efficiently and reliably at an optimised cost.
Almost all products have a requirement of a mechanical engineer: from mobile phones, to medical devices to a formula 1 racing cars. Mechanical engineers are also developing the next generation of environmentally friendly materials and devices for renewable energy sources.
A Mechanical Engineering course at Queen's University Belfast will assist you in developing the core skills and employment-related experiences that are valued by employers, professional organisations and academic institutions alike.
Our graduates are well regarded by many employers (local, national and international) and the versatility of Mechanical Engineering graduates makes them well suited for a wide range of careers.
Graduates are greatly prized because of their high level of numeracy and analytical ability, their well-developed communication skills and their leadership potential. In contrast to other engineering disciplines they are more likely to progress to senior management roles and they can more easily exploit their skills in the wider commercial, financial or public sectors.
Further study is also an option - students can choose from a range of Master's programmes as well as apply to do a PhD from a comprehensive list of research topics; see the School website for further information.
