Introduction to the Engineering (Mechanical) BEng programme
The Engineering (Mechanical) BEng is a challenging three-year programme which will equip you with the analytical and design skills relevant to a wide range of engineering employers. You will learn how to apply a deeper understanding of engineering principles to a range of real world challenge
Integrated Engineering Programme
You will study mechanical engineering in the context of our Integrated Engineering Programme giving you the opportunity to:
- tackle practical engineering challenges throughout your programme
- develop transferable professional skills
- tailor your programme to your interests
- study and collaborate with students in other engineering disciplines
Watch this IET video to learn more.
On completing your mechanical engineering degree programme, career options can be in a wide variety of fields. These include:
- motor vehicle design
- medical engineering
The problem-solving and mathematical skills you develop, will also make you an attractive candidate for employers in many other fields. These include commerce, banking, and management consultancy.

You may choose to take a year working in industry between the second and the third years of your BEng degree programme. Please note that:
- this posting needs UCL approval in advance, and
- you will be required to write a comprehensive report on your work and what you learn during the year.
The report is assessed, and the marks are given some weighting in the overall classification of your degree.
