Undergraduate Engineering Degrees

Our degrees set new standards in engineering, starting you on the path to being a Chartered Engineer.

Whichever degree you choose, you'll study in first-rate learning facilities from supportive staff. Here you'll develop your technical, professional and hands-on skills necessary to solve real-world problems.

You'll also enjoy our partnerships with the RAF, local industries, and overseas institutions. Further partners include: Jaguar Land Rover, Capula, KMF, Perkins Engines Company, Eurocopter and Alstom PowerGeneral Electric Grid Solutions.

You'll learn from researchers recognised as being of an international or world-class standard. Biomass, medical devices, electronics, signal processing, and telecommunications, are just some of our interests. You'll have plenty to get stuck into.

Our tutors also have considerable industry experience. Several provide consultancy and knowledge transfer for local and national companies. With extensive business links, they bring current thinking, expertise, and innovation into their teaching.

Leading external accreditation bodies endorse most of our degrees. These include: The Institution of Mechanical Engineers, The Institution of Engineering and Technology and The Energy Institute.


What our staff and students say

I studied for a degree after realising my old job wouldn't fulfil me. I set myself the personal goal to have designed components for vehicles that a customer can buy from a showroom, so I looked for university courses that could deliver the education needed, and Staffordshire University fitted the bill for me.

Keith Hill - Bentley Motors

The support from the lecturers and the international community at Staffordshire University made me feel at home. The knowledge and skills I acquired during my studies gave me the confidence to apply to, and work, at one of the most innovative engineering companies in the UK, Dyson.

We've designed our subjects and courses to reflect the roles and careers our students want, so when you graduate you won't be a fish out of water. You'll be right at home.

Mechanical Engineering resources

Mechanical Engineering resources include industry standard hardware and software. Our labs in Stoke are full of exciting equipment for you to use so that you can prepare yourself for the workplace when you graduate.

Reverse Engineering Laboratory

Our Laboratory contains 3 Dimensional scanning capability, Additive Manufacturing machines featuring PolyJet, FDM, 3DP processes, as well as Laser Engraving ability.

Thermofluids and Aeronautical

Understanding the interaction between air and objects, particularly at their surfaces, is key to the design and operation of aircraft. Facilities in this laboratory allow practical measurement which is then augmented by computer-based flow simulation and modelling.


Packed with state-of-the-art software and hardware resources reflecting current trends in the development of engineering & technology subjects.
