The Mechanical Engineering and Materials Engineering programmes offer a stimulating mixture of theoretical study and hands-on practical work, all informed by recent advances in the engineering industry. Through a mixture of projects and taught modules you’ll study topics such as fluid dynamics, mechanics of solids and structures, and dynamics, all of which are relevant to a wide range of industries including aerospace, renewable energy, automotive, marine and many others.
Materials engineering is a discipline at the interface between materials science and engineering. It involves not only the understanding of materials and their properties, their internal microstructure or the particular manufacturing processes used in their production, but also how to use these in design of real world applications. All branches of engineering rely on solid materials to carry mechanical or electrical loads, but materials engineering explores in much greater depth the link between what we can make materials do and how to use them in the design of new technologies.
Many of the most exciting current developments in the technological world are in materials engineering, such as nanotechnology, artificial replacement organs and tissues, and smart composites for aerospace applications. These and other topics are covered in these programmes including manufacturing, CAD/CAM, elasticity and solid mechanics. These programmes would suit those who aim to work in any technology field or in a management role in related industries.
