About BEng Mechanical and Electrical Engineering

There is strong industrial demand for skilled engineers who are able to span both the mechanical and electrical engineering disciplines. Our course will give you the fundamental knowledge and tools to satisfy this demand in a unique way.

Students on this course will study and combine units from the mechanical and electrical disciplines along the following themes:

  • design and integration of electro-mechanical systems
  • energy conversion and actuation systems
  • embedded systems and control
  • power electronics and electric drives
  • thermal energy management.

A typical graduate will understand and be able to innovate technologies in the following:

  • The power flow of a renewable energy microgrid, from the wind to the electric generator and the power network, to the user in the home.
  • Robotics used in healthcare and manufacturing, by exploring the integration of mechanical and electrical elements to deliver new capabilities.
  • A complete power train of a future electric vehicle from the energy storage system through to the electric motors, to the mechanical drive train and traction system.
  • Battery-free technology, which harvests background energy, allowing sensors to operate in previously inaccessible and far-reaching locations.

Years one and two offer a grounding in mathematics, thermal management, dynamics and control, computing, electrical energy technologies, and analogue and digital electronics. Laboratory work and case studies will draw together these interdisciplinary foundations.

In the third year students will choose from a range of options and engage in group design projects and an individual research project. This will allow you to focus your learning on anything from soft robotics and intelligent adaptable power systems to efficient, clean propulsion technologies.
