Course content

In Year 1, your learning will closely mirror our other engineering degree disciplines (Automotive, Aeronautical, Electrical & Electronics etc.) to ensure you have a solid foundation in engineering principles. (See Module section for more details).

In Year 2, you will be introduced to more advanced concepts of mechanical structures, engineering design and manufacturing, as well as automation & control engineering. At the same time, you will develop problem-solving, teamworking and leadership & management skills.

If you have enrolled on the course with the option of a placement you can also look to undertake an industry placement and you’ll be supported by our own placements team and careers staff with your CV preparation, interviews and careers skills to make sure you present yourself and your talent in the best possible way. For example, our students have gained placements previously with Bentley Motors and Alton Towers amongst others. Placement is usually a 12-month full-time role that relates to the subject a student is studying. During the year you have been accepted into the placement you will still be enrolled on your course and have connections with the university and your academic staff, this is treated as your year 3 and upon your return to the academic environment you will have the opportunity to complete your last year of the course as Year 4.

In Year 3, the major part of your course will be associated to completing a substantial engineering project as well as focusing on specialised modules in Finite Element Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Manufacturing and Power Plant and Clean Technology.

You will also get the chance to present your work and project to industry and the public at our annual Gradex event.

Academic year

The course operates on a modular basis that provides flexibility and choice. Typically the majority of modules are 30 academic credits with a smaller number of 15 credit modules. Each credit taken equates to a total study time of around 10 hours. Total study time includes scheduled teaching, independent study and assessment activity. Full-time students take modules worth 60 credits per semester, with part-time students taking proportionately fewer credits per semester. All students take a total of 120 credits per level and 360 credits for the degree as a whole. Your overall grade for the course and your degree classification are based on the marks obtained for modules taken at levels 5 and 6.  The full-time course has one start point in September.

Teaching and assessment

Teaching

You will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, workshops and laboratory practicals. Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups of around 16-18 students. In addition, you will have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor at least twice a year. You will be taught in first-class learning spaces throughout your course. Many of our courses are accredited or recognised by professional, statutory or regulatory bodies.

Assessment

Your course will provide you with opportunities to test your understanding of your subject informally before you complete the formal assessments that count towards your final mark. Each module normally includes practice or ‘formative’ assessments, for which you receive feedback from your tutor. Practice assessments are developmental and any grades you receive for them do not count towards your module mark. There is a formal or ‘summative’ assessment at the end of each module. This includes a range of coursework assessments, such as essays, reports, portfolios, performance, presentations, final year, independent project and written examinations. The grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark.

Learning support

In addition to the excellent support you will receive from your course teaching team, our central Academic Skills team provides group and one-to-one help to support your learning in a number of areas. These include study skills (including reading, note-taking and presentation skills); written English (including punctuation and grammatical accuracy); academic writing (including how to reference); research skills; critical thinking and understanding arguments; and revision, assessment and examination skills (including time management).

Additional support

Our Student Inclusion Services support students with additional needs such as sensory impairment, or learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

There is a formal or 'summative' assessment at the end of each module and the grades from formal assessments count towards your module mark. You will normally receive feedback on coursework assessments within 20 working days following the date of submission. Examination feedback may take a variety of formats. However, as a minimum, generic feedback will be made available to all students who take written examinations.

Our students

The Mechanical Engineering degree provides all the basis for working within any industry. All the theory and practical lab sessions for the modules directly link to real world applications. Lots of support is available to gain the knowledge required to do well once graduated. The placement year option is particularly valuable with the ability to implement the taught elements of CAD, simulation software (theory application) and professional conduct in the workplace.
