Why study mechanical engineering?
Engineers constantly ask questions and explore new ideas. They play a vital role in developing the world around us from the initial design and manufacture of products to their development, management or marketing.
A degree in Mechanical Engineering will challenge you and transform the way you learn. Develop your understanding of stress analysis, dynamics, heat transfer, mechatronics, materials and manufacture, and maths.
You’ll build core skills that you’ll take with you through your career, such as innovation, teamwork and creativity. Join us in using the power of engineering to explore, take risks and find ways to change the world for the better.
Why UWE Bristol?
Our new inclusive, problem-based curriculum aims to broaden our engineering audience. To date, we’re the first university in the UK to transform our curriculum alongside constructing a new engineering building. You’ll also benefit from accreditation from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) too.
You’ll be taught in our new state-of-the-art School of Engineering designed to revolutionise the way engineering is taught. Featuring engine test cells, dedicated collaborative learning spaces and all of the latest high-tech equipment, it’s purpose-built to support a wide range of engineering disciplines.
Where can it take me?
As a student engineer, you’ll start your professional journey towards becoming an incorporated or chartered engineer from day one. You’ll learn by doing, applying and revisiting your early skills through embedded project weeks and development of digital and physical prototypes, as you would in practice.
Mechanical engineers are sought after for traditional engineering jobs and the product development process. They are also highly regarded in the world of financial business. You’ll also be in demand to help maximise usage of high capital plants and operations such as power stations, oil refineries and hospitals.
