This page is an introduction to this degree programme
This programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer for the 2014 -2021 student cohort intake.
Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.
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 challenges.
You will study mechanical engineering in the context of our Integrated Engineering Programme, giving you the opportunity to:
