INTRA Programme MEng Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

Four students collaborating at a desk using laptops
MEng Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering


The MEng degree programme  combines Mechanical Engineering  and Manufacturing with an emphasis  on Computer-Aided Engineering in  the final two years.

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 

Students 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 ten month INTRA placement at the end of third year.
