Mechanical Engineering with Management

This programme aims to equip students with the skills required to be a modern mechanical engineer. It focuses on the latest techniques and technologies used in mechanical engineering, teaching how to apply these to complex contemporary problems. Students will gain a range of computational skills which will enable them to analyse systems using numerical methods, simulation and optimisation techniques. Sustainability is also emphasised throughout the programme and students will be encouraged to consider responsible solutions to modern day challenges. The programme is supported by research projects in areas such as nano-scale materials engineering, biomedical engineering, 3D analysis from CT scans for prosthetic bone replacement surgery, additive layer manufacturing for high specification applications with aerospace metals, and application and recycling of polymers and composites. The programme has been designed for mechanical engineers who want to develop their management expertise in order to progress their careers. It also enables graduates to proceed to Chartered Engineer status.
