University rank #51 (QS) ,
This Mechanical Engineering course from University of Bristol is fully accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and, on completion, you will have already met the exemplifying benchmark academic requirements for becoming an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).

About

The first two years of the Mechanical Engineering course from University of Bristol are common across our mechanical engineering degrees. Teaching is based on four main themes:

  • design and manufacture
  • dynamics and control
  • materials
  • thermofluids.

Years one and two cover the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering and include lectures, laboratories and design classes, as well as a number of short projects in modelling and manufacturing.

The third year builds on this foundation and applies the principles covered in years one and two to more realistic and complex engineering applications. A major element of the third year is an open-ended individual research project that requires independent and creative thinking.

In the fourth year, students select from specialist options, which provide an insight into state-of-the-art engineering research. The fourth year also includes a major group project. In these projects, students must use effective teamwork to address a substantial open-ended technical challenge.
