Get on track for our BEng(Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree by completing a foundation year. If you're committed to an engineering future and have a less conventional background, this is the course for you.
Why study mechanical engineering?
Engineers constantly ask questions and explore new ideas. They play an important role in developing the world around us - whether that's through the initial design and manufacture of products, or through their development, management or marketing. A degree in Mechanical Engineering will challenge you and transform the way you learn, giving you the opportunity to use your skills in any sector you wish.
