Mechanical engineering applies human and material resources to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of machines to move people, goods and materials, generate energy, produce goods and services, control pollution and dispose of wastes.
Mechanical engineers turn energy into power and motion, focusing on the generation, conversion and use of energy, as well as the design, construction and operation of devices and systems.
You will learn from world leaders in fluid mechanics, turbulence and bio mechanics. Opportunities to consolidate theory with practice will come from group activities, site visits and industry projects. You will have access to well-equipped laboratories for materials testing, engine/turbine testing, wind tunnel investigations, simulation and metal forming processes. A heavy engineering workshop is available for the manufacture of testing facilities and research apparatus, as well as extensive computer facilities.
