Campus Taught

Take your love of design, construction and the use of machines to the next level on our Mechanical Engineering Foundation Entry Degree, MEng (Hons).

Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly enter their chosen Honours degree programme.

Mechanical engineers use their knowledge of fundamental engineering principles like mechanics, materials, thermo-fluids and computer-aided design to analyse and design objects and systems with motion.

This MEng course includes a higher-level project that enables you to demonstrate application of your knowledge at a fully professional level. A group project develops and demonstrates your ability to work within a team - experience that is highly valued in industry.

Why study with us

  • Our Mechanical Engineering provision is ranked in the UK’s top 10 for student satisfaction, and 1st in the North West (Complete University Guide, 2021).
  • There’s an optional placement route to spend a year in industry between Year 2 and Year 3.
  • Benefit from the latest high-quality equipment available in our new £35m Engineering Innovation Centre.

As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
