Future Students
Here at the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, we have more than 60 years of experience. Students have five degree specialisations to choose from, and benefit from our passionate and inspiring teaching staff, brilliant research programs, state-of-the-art facilities, and strong links with industry leaders.
What is Mechanical Engineering?
The results of mechanical engineering are all around us. Every machine we use stems from the work of mechanical engineers - from planes and tractors, to conveyor belts and 3D printers. It looks to make life easier by improving efficiency, sustainability, and discovering new technologies.
Whether they are discovering new medical diagnostics and treatments, developing autonomous urban transport systems, or inventing composite materials to revolutionise manufacturing processes, our renowned researchers in the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering aim to make the future better for everyone.
