Mechanical Engineers play a crucial role in a wide range of industries, among them air, rail, sea and road. They are involved in high precision processes such as the design and manufacture of prosthetic devices and robotic mechanisms.
The physical scale of their work ranges from nanoscale motors and pumps through to high speed trains, wind turbines, and rocket/vehicles for space exploration. Mechanical Engineering enables students to learn how to systematically design essential machine elements and using three dimensional computer aided design modelling software, to display and test these models.
For admission to a programme, standard applicants must

This course has a strong emphasis on the practical side of mechanical engineering, exposing the student to many “hands on” modules in workshops and laboratories. Modules on the course are grouped into streams that run over the three years: Workshop Practice, Mechatronics, Mechanical Design and Computer Aided Engineering, Mechanics, Thermofluids, Materials, Management, Projects, Mathematics and Elective Options.
