Mechanical Engineering

Let’s build more than the inner workings of the world. Let’s build new possibilities.

Our accredited hands-on Mechanical and Motorsports courses give you the chance to design, analyse, manufacture, and maintain machines and mechanical production techniques that will equip you for your future.

Our courses are tutored by world-class academics with both industry and research experience. You’ll have the opportunity to work on industry and research-led projects and learn the skills and knowledge to graduate with a rounded education that prepares you to take ideas all the way from concept to production and launch.

You’ll benefit from significant investment in the latest high-quality equipment and facilities available through our new £35 million Engineering Innovation Centre. You’ll also have access to extensive manufacturing facilities, which means you’ll gain the practical engineering expertise you need to get noticed by employers with the advantage of being located at the centre of one of the most intense engineering and manufacturing areas in the UK.

You’ll also develop skills associated with the design and development process through a combination of year-long modules, masterclasses, and short courses.
