About the course
Modern businesses demand an increasingly high quality environment in which to work. The design of heating, ventilation and air conditioning, visual and aural services, lighting, transportation and security systems are becoming more complex, efficient and sophisticated to meet this demand.
This course covers all the fundamental elements of mechanical engineering and design and provides a background in such fields as electronics, electrical engineering, control

There is a rapidly expanding market for engineers who have the technological appreciation to respond to advances in building services engineering and this course aims to equip you with that appreciation.
From jet aircraft to air conditioning plant, tunneling machines to body-scanners, technical consultancy to financial services, mechanical engineers deal with the design and poduction of the machines, systems and structures which help make the modern world function so smoothly.
As such, the career paths avaliable to you will be as diverse as they will be engaging. In response to the variety of roles available to Brunel mechanical engineering graduates, the course is tailored to give you a range of knowledge, with emphasis given in the latter part of the course to specialised content.
The range of courses reflects several of our research interests:
- energy and environmental engineering;
- internal combustion engines and their fuels;
- structures and materials;
- fluid mechanics.
This course aims to prepare engineering graduates with the knowledge base, understanding and skills to play leading professional roles in industry involved in the design and operation of traditional and modern sustainable energy systems. The graduates will acquire expertise in the technological design and analysis and the environmental and economic implications of energy generation, supply and usage.
We also offer the Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year course
