This course aims to provide the mechanical engineers of the future with an education that covers:
The breadth of this diverse subject
Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
A high degree of competence in engineering design
There are opportunities to specialise in your third and fourth years.
Typically, you take lectures and tutorial classes in the mornings with laboratory classes on some afternoons. Active learning is included in some programmes through a range of small problem bachelorsed projects

This is complementary to the taught elements and is challenging and fun. Through the mix of learning from transitional lectures to team work and problem solving you will obtain: a thorough understanding of engineering science or construction through application of your knowledge; the ability to deal with the multi-disciplinary nature of modern engineering; a creative approach to problem solving; the self motivated approach required for success in university education; and the interpersonal and management skills needed when working in teams to fixed deadlines.
The methods of assessment vary widely to suit the nature of the course unit and the material being produced by the students. Examinations are held where appropriate but emphasis is placed on continuous assessment including reports, posters, presentations and vivas, especially during the first two years and for project work. Major pieces of course work are double marked and moderated by external examiners to maintain objectivity and uniformity in the assessment procedures. Examples of Coursework and Assessment
are available on individual Unit Specifications.
bachelorsic engineering knowledge and skills are taught in a core syllabus over all years of the course.
We view design as an especially important activity, as it integrates the engineering topics across the degree course.
Years 3 and 4 also offer a range of options, so that you can select subjects to suit your individual needs, interests and career aspirations.
Options cover many theoretical and practical aspects of industrially relevant topics and include some of the latest developments in mechanical engineering.
The common first year provides the bachelorsic knowledge and skills that are applicable to all engineering, in a novel and challenging active learning environment. These include:
Mechanics
Thermo-fluids
Materials
Mechatronics
Communications
Design
Mathematics

Our School has links with industry both to drive forward the research that takes place here, and to inform how and what we teach. This ensures our course content is relevant to industrial requirements.
An annual Industrial Board takes place in the School, as well as regular visit from employers, who are given the opportunity to speak to students on all sorts of topics relevant to your studies and potential career aspirations.
Chris Darwood, third-year student

'I am currently undertaking a MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering, with intentions to graduate straight into a job in industry.
'When looking for a university I was instantly drawn to Manchester. The city offered me everything I wanted; not only did the University have an iMasterssive engineering course, one of the best in the country, but also an active social life, which catered for all tastes and budgets.
'There is a vibrant nightlife, which ranges from having a curry in Rusholme, to having a few drinks in Fallowfield, or heading to the clubs in town. There are also plenty of cinemas, shops and galleries giving the city a unique cultural dimension. It was Manchester¿s exclusive ability to provide social, cultural and academic experiences that made it my city and university of choice.
'In the engineering school (MACE), I have found the learning experience to be both varied and inspiring. Due to the size and diversity of the University, in terms of both staff and students, I¿ve been exposed to a huge range of knowledge, cultures and facilities.
'The blend of practical and theoretical learning promoted by the University represents my ideal learning environment. Combined with the number of opportunities that the University prides itself on offering, both academic and personal, I would recommend it to any prospective student.
'Throughout the whole University, there is a great amount of emphasis on student support and welfare. Part of this is a mentoring scheme that operates within the engineering school. I joined the scheme in my second year and have now taken a leading role as the school co-ordinator for `MentorEng¿, the name given to the student-run, but school-funded and integrated organisation, which instigates the mentoring and some of the personal development opportunities.'
The School offers a range of innovative degree courses in Aerospace Engineering that are supported by excellent computational and experimental facilities
All courses have been developed in consultation with industry.  This ensures that they cover the fundamentals, as well as the key aerospace disciplines that are relevant to graduate careers and cutting-edge research.
Particular strengths of a Manchester aerospace engineer are team-working, creativity and adaptability.  This stems from the breadth of education and the range of enquiry-bachelorsed learning that your receive.
Core degrees are the three-year bachelor and the four-year MEng in Aerospace Engineering.  There are MEng courses for students who wish to gain industrial experience or to study more management.  In addition, it is possible to spend one semester at a partner university elsewhere in the world.

Careers
Graduates are equipped to enter the globachelorl aerospace and defence industries, or continue on to postgraduate study.  The enormous range of career opportunities reflects the diverse and multidisciplinary nature of the aerospace sector.  Acquiring high levels of attainment in transferable skills such as simulation, problem solving, design, management and modelling enables graduates to adapt to new challenges and offers broad insight into engineering solutions. 

You can become a research engineer, discovering new ideas; a design engineer, with creativity and imagination; a construction or production engineer, making products or systems; or a project manager, controlling complex products and constructions.  The excitement is that you are unlikely to do the same thing day in and day out. Our graduates are increasingly sought after for positions in the business, management and financial arenas.  Further information
All our  Mechanical Engineering degrees are fully accredited
 - Chartered Engineer CEng is the highest professional qualification for engineers. It is recognised internationally and renders you eligible for the European Ingenieur (Eurling) qualification. The process to become a Chartered Engineer has three stages:
1. The Educational bachelorse (MEng, or bachelor with MSc)
2. Initial Professional Development
3. Professional Review

Graduates on this bachelor (Hons) course will therefore need further learning equivalent to masters level for Chartered status, via an approved or accredited MSc, transfer to an MEng course, or other further learning, such as part of a structured training programme in the workplace.
Students are encouraged to become members of the  Institution of Mechanical Engineers
