95% of Mechanical Engineering students at Swansea are satisfied with their course, according to the latest National Student Survey (NSS). Mechanical Engineering is a key discipline in today’s highly technological society. Mechanical engineers are involved in the design and manufacture of almost everything you see or touch.
The entry requirements of the BEng Mechanical Engineering course are:
ABB-BBB at A level (including Mathematics).
Other recommended subjects include:
We do recognise the individual nature of each application and so the above offer range should be viewed only as a guide. In some circumstances we may make different offers or points offers where appropriate, e.g. ‘300 UCAS points including 100 in Mathematics’.
Or 32 at IB (preferably including good HL marks in Mathematics).
Students studying for BTEC qualifications require DDD, plus B grade at A level Mathematics. Studying A level Mathematics alongside a BTEC qualification is our strongly recommended entry pathway for those studying BTEC qualifications. Students not studying A level Mathematics, alongside their BTEC qualification, require D*D*D - D*DD with D in ‘Mathematics for Technicians’ and D in ‘Further Mathematics for Technicians’, plus minimum GCSE grades of B in Mathematics and 2 x B grades in Science/Engineering/Manufacturing.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.
If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.

Mechanical engineering covers the widest range of products of all branches of engineering. The Mechanical Engineer, who needs to be at the leading edge of technology, is probably the most versatile of all professional engineers.
All aspects of mechanical engineering are involved in new product development, including the role of a Research Engineer, Development Engineer, Design Engineer and Manufacturing Engineer.
The key skills required to do each of these jobs include fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, structural analysis, materials, manufacturing, design and management.
Our BEng Mechanical Engineering (with a year in Europe) course contains a series of modules in each key skill ensuring that our students can learn how to be professional engineers.
