  • Entry requirements
    Selected entry requirements English language: Minimum grade C in English Language or equivalent qualification: IELTS 6.0 or TOEFL 550/220. A level: Grades AAB. This should include Mathematics (must include applied/mechanical element - if not Physics must be offered) and a science (Physics preferred but Chemistry, Biology or Engineering Science also acceptable). Two AS-levels of equivalent grade are acceptable in place of a third A-level. General Studies is not accepted. Unit grade information: The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will inform the consideration of applications. Unit grades will not normally form part of offer conditions, except for Mathematics programmes. GCSE: Minimum grade C in English Language. Key Skills qualification: The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University. International baccalaureate: 36 points overall including 6 in Mathematics and Physics at the Higher level. Additional entry requirements Additional entry requirements exist for this course.

    Course description
    The programme begins with the common first year, which provides the basic knowledge and skills which are applicable to all engineering, such as mechanics, thermo-fluids, materials, mechatronics, communications, design and mathematics, in a novel and challenging active learning environment.

    In the second year, in addition to course units in design, professional studies and management, you will begin to study the core material that provides the basic technical knowledge required by mechanical engineers. This includes such subjects as thermodynamics, fluids, materials and structures, dynamics, and control. All these topics are taught in an innovative application-driven environment, where you will use and enhance the learning skills developed in year one. For example, a typical design challenge might be a transmission system for a racing car, choosing the gear ratios to maximise acceleration. All the design challenges produce practical results.

    In Year 3 you will undertake a structured placement in the UK mechanical engineering industry. As well as local supervision, you will be supported by the University network and an individual tutor who will visit you at your workplace. You will work on a range of real mechanical engineering projects meaning that at the end of your studies you emerge an experienced engineer.

    The final years take on a different character from that of the earlier years in that you will spend a substantial portion of your time on exercises carried out either individually or as part of a team. In the fourth year the emphasis on specialist mechanical material continues. You will undertake a design activity which includes the design, build and test of a machine or process. Each student will undertake an individual research project. In the fifth year, you will undertake a group project and complete your formal studies with a selection of options. The core material expands to include such topics as manufacturing and project management. There is a wide range of options which may include machine tools, management, manufacturing, materials, processes, mathematics, micro-mechanics, modelling & simulation, plant monitoring, power plant, environment and many others.

    Special features
    -This course includes an industrial experience year.
    -The novel teaching methods combine with real practice to add direct relevance.
    -There are opportunities to specialise in the fourth and fifth years.

    Career opportunities
    Mechanical engineering is the most fundamental of all the engineering disciplines. Professional mechanical engineers can work in a whole range of industries: aerospace, automobile, civil, electronics, manufacturing and the process industries. Industrial experience is a huge asset in locating and securing the best jobs. The demand for professional mechanical engineers is high and relatively stable, because it is less affected by recession in any single industry. Mechanical engineers also find many employment opportunities in other branches of engineering where their key skills play important roles. Transferable skills such as simulation, problem solving, design, management and modelling, enable a significant proportion of graduates to follow alternative careers in high level technology. Our graduates are increasingly sought after for positions in the business, management and financial arenas.
