Engineering affects every aspect of human activity, including designing how cars, planes, ships work and move, how energy is created by combustion, wind or tidal flows, financial algorithms that influence the economy, the improvement of medical devices and more recently how the human body function. Training as a mechanical engineer will lead you into one of the broadest areas of engineering.
It is one of the most demanding disciplines and courses and this is reflected in broad range of industry sectors where mechanical engineers are employed.
