Introduction

Joint degree combining Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.

This programme is studied on campus.

Mechanical engineering is concerned with creative and imaginative use of engineering principles and science to shape the world around us, through the development of new materials, technologies, processes and products. Mechanical engineers design and develop everything that moves or has moving parts, ranging from spacecrafts and aeroplanes to racing cars, from household goods like refrigerators to the small motors that turn a CD in a CD player, from robotic control of machinery to nanotechnologies, from mechanical hearts and artificial limbs to fitness machines, and from oil and gas exploration and production technologies to wind turbines.

Our society relies on Electrical Engineers for everything from low power electrical machines, control systems, to high voltage electrical power generation and distribution systems. Electrical and Electronic Engineering is at the core of the modern world, from computers, to digital circuits, photonics and a wealth of electronic devices. Electrical and Electronic engineering is one of the most satisfying subjects that you can study.

What You'll Study

The first two years cover general Engineering, with elements of Chemical, Mechanical, Petroleum and Electrical/Electronics, as well as Civil. In the later years you specialise, following your chosen discipline in greater depth. You do not need to finalise your choice of specialisation until you begin third year.

It is possible to move between MEng and BEng and this can be accomplished at any point until the second half session of fourth year. Successful BEng candidates will be offered the chance to change to the MEng and there is no quota, meaning that if grade requirements are met that transfer is guaranteed.
