BEng Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering


The BEng degree programme  combines Mechanical Engineering  and Manufacturing with an emphasis  on Computer-Aided Engineering in the final year.

Programme Outline

In the first three years of study (i.e. prior to their INTRA work placement) all Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering students complete two significant team projects; one in their first year (a multidisciplinary Mobile Robotics project) and one in their third year (a mechanical design-and-build project). They complete modules in Engineering Computation (including some advanced Excel and Excel macros), Pneumatics and Control, Design and CADD (using SolidWorks), Lean and 6 Sigma Manufacturing, Data Analytics for Engineers (including Statistical Quality Control), Project and Quality Management, and Project Development and Regulatory Compliance.

Work Areas

They have the ability to work in the following areas:

  • Product/process design
  • Project engineering
  • Manufacturing system design  and implementation
  • Quality assurance / management Research and development
  • Operations management
  • Test engineering
  • Technical documentation

INTRA Internship

Students are required to complete a six-month INTRA placement at the end of third year, from April to September.
