Why study mechanical engineering?
Engineers constantly ask questions and explore new ideas. They play an important role in developing the world around us – whether that’s through the initial design and manufacture of products, or through their development, management or marketing.
A degree in Mechanical Engineering will challenge you and transform the way you learn, giving you the opportunity to use your skills in any sector you wish. 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 will broaden our engineering audience, enabling students from a wider range of backgrounds to pursue a career in engineering. To date, we’re the first university in the UK to transform our curriculum alongside constructing a new engineering building.
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 the latest high-tech equipment, it’s purpose-built to support a wide range of engineering disciplines.
This course is developed alongside our partner employers to make sure you’re industry ready when you graduate. They’ll also provide you with placement opportunities, as well as advice on CV-writing, interview techniques and industry issues.
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. You’ll also be in demand to help maximise usage of high capital plants and operations such as power stations, oil refineries and hospitals.
