This degree allows you to use your mathematical and analytical skills to solve real-life problems.

Mechanical engineers are sought-after in all types of industries, from food processing to pharmaceutical manufacture, as well as in high-profile sectors such as automobile and aerospace. This is a modern mechanical engineering degree that is relevant to a range of industries. You could design, analyse, research and test anything from wind turbines to turbojet engines.

This four-year Master of Engineering course is designed to give you a higher technical knowledge, and is the highest award for undergraduate study in engineering. The MEng course is a great route for students who want to become registered Chartered Engineers as it meets the Engineering Council’s educational requirements to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, the highest standard within the industry.

Studying on the MEng Mechanical Engineering course removes the need to source further funding to study a Masters-level qualification.

TOEFL IBT minimum score for Undergraduate of 80 IBT
Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE): exams taken from January 2015 – overall score of 169 with at least 162 in each component ; exams taken before January 2015 – Grade C and no less than borderline in each skill
Trinity College English Language qualifications: ISE II Distinction or ISE III Pass for undergraduate courses
City and Guild’s IESOL/ISESOL tests, in some cases, we may also be able to accept the communicator level (B2)
Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) with a minimum of 51 points in each element for the majority of undergraduate programmes
Don’t worry if you do not meet these requirements, we run a number of courses to prepare you for academic studies.


For the first three years, you will study alongside those on the BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering. This will give you the opportunity to learn fundamental engineering principles, further develop your knowledge and skills and gain an appreciation for concepts relevant to mechanical engineering. In your fourth year, your additional year of study, you will apply what you’ve already learned on a substantial project.
