About the course
The mainstream Mechanical Engineering course at Brunel covers all the fundamental elements of mechanical engineering and design, and provides a background in related fields such as computing, electronics, electrical engineering, control, energy and environment. To give you greater commercial insight and awareness, you will also study elements of management, ethics, finance and law.
The final year of the MEng is about broadening and deepening your knowledge and understanding of the discipline, to better meet the leadership needs of industry.
Mechanical engineering covers the design and development of every kind of machine – from supersonic fighter jets and super cars to bicycles and mobile phones. In fact, every product or service has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer. This course gives you a broad and solid grounding in the subject. The specialisms in this respected general degree include sustainability and mechatronics which can be applied across the manufacturing sector, or more specifically in areas such as biomedical engineering.
This course aims to produce highly qualified mechanical engineers with qualities and transferable skills for demanding employment in industry, commerce and public service where leadership, initiative, personal responsibility and professionalism are required.
