About MEng Mechanical Engineering with a Year in Industry

The Year in Industry course provides the opportunity to spend your third year applying the knowledge gained in the first two years of study in an industrial environment. There is no direct entry onto this course, but you can transfer from our other Mechanical Engineering courses if you reach the high academic standard and are successful at an interview with industry. Places are limited and highly competitive.

The first two years are common across our mechanical engineering degrees. Teaching is based on four main themes:

  • design and manufacture
  • dynamics and control
  • materials
  • thermofluids.

Years one and two cover the fundamental principles of mechanical engineering and include lectures, laboratories and design classes, as well as a number of short projects in modelling and manufacturing.

During the third year, students will be able to apply the learning from their first two years of study through an industrial placement.

The fourth year builds on this foundation and applies the principles covered in years one and two to more realistic and complex engineering applications. A major element of the fourth year is an open-ended individual research project that requires independent and creative thinking.

In the fifth year, students select from specialist options, which provide an insight into state-of-the-art engineering research. The fifth-year also includes a major group project. In these projects, students must use effective teamwork to address a substantial open-ended technical challenge.
