  • Objectives
    This course is designed for those who want to gain mechanical engineering skills and apply them in a sports environment. The sporting equipment and apparel market is highly profitable, with major multinational companies turning over more than a £1 billion each. It's a growing business, and it needs high calibre graduates with the skills to design, produce and market the next generation of sports products. During the first two and a half years you will follow a core syllabus aimed at developing the essential skills and knowledge in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, structure and behaviour of the human body, sports management and mathematics. These are integrated through laboratory sessions, design projects, group work and tutorials. A special feature of the course is that during the final one and a half years you can choose from a wide range of advanced modules. This enables you to follow the areas of your interest and to prepare for your initial career. In year three there is a group sports design project and during year four you will undertake a major individual sports related project. There is a degree of flexibility to change between our courses by the end of the first year, by agreement with the Department. This four-year course is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and meets the latest requirements for entry to the profession as a Chartered Engineer. Full Chartered Engineer (CEng) status will require appropriate experience working as a graduate engineer.
