Engineering (Mechanical) BEng
3 year BEng Honours Degree
|UCAS codes||Institution: U80||Course: H300||Short title: BEng/MechE|
We admit students with good A-level standard or equivalent and aim to teach them analytical and design skills relevant to a wide-range of companies that employ mechanical engineers. The teaching of computing and management skills is also an important part of the programme.
Obtaining Chartered Status
The first two years of study are similar to the MEng degree programme, but inevitably the shorter BEng degree does not allow such breadth and depth of study. As this is a new degree programme it needs to undergo a new accreditation process, this is currently underway and we hope to have it completed by the end of 2016. If accreditation is granted by the IMechE then the BEng Engineering (Mechanical) (Hons) will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer and students will need to complete an approved format of further learning pursuant to the requirements of UK-SPEC.The majority of the Department's MSc programmes are accredited to supply the required element of further learning. Another possibility would be for students to transfer to the MEng programme, which is permitted at the end of the second year providing that the student has achieved an aggregate mark equivalent to a lower second class honours performance or better.The BEng (Hons) will also automatically meet in full, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).

This shows the degree structure confirmed for 2014-15. We are continually updating and improving our programmes so the content for 2015 onwards may differ. The degree programmes are organised on a course-unit basis, with 4 units taken in each year. These 4 units are achieved by a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, project work, design studies, practical computer work and laboratory experiments.
|Second Year Options|
Students must select one minor:
MECH304P Elasticity and Plasticity
MECH302P Dynamics and Control
MECH303P Advanced Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics
MSIN3001 Project Management
MECH3002 Individual Project
||Please note that MSIN3001 Project Management will be taking place in Term 2.|
|Third Year Options|
Students must select two minors:
Please note: The choice of modules maybe constrained by availability and timetabling.
For both the MEng or the BEng programmes around one half of the
third year is spent developing skills through a Project and
a series of Design assignments. You can either
select your Project from a long list put forward by staff or you can suggest
your own topic. You will work under the supervision of a member of academic
staff and have available to you the resources and the support of technicians
from our workshops. Students often find that their project is the most
satisfying part of their course as they have the opportunity to achieve
something useful, while learning at the same time. In recent years, we have had
students winning Design Council prizes for their project work and on several
more occasions the results of their projects have been published in major
technical journals. Many of our projects are linked with industry.
