Course Description

Modern society needs high-quality Mechanical Engineering graduates for their professional mechanical engineering skills and expertise. Heriot-Watt University is proud that our graduates are constantly in demand for these skills.

Mechanical Engineers play key roles in all industrial sectors ranging from aerospace, oil and gas, through food and transport to manufacturing, chemical and entertainment industries. Mechanical Engineering offers an exciting environment where many skills are brought together to create innovative products and the infrastructure and technology for manufacture.

The MEng (Master of Engineering) is an Integrated Master degree aims to produce graduate Engineers who are able to meet society’s needs by the creation of products or processes that benefit the individual or economy. Many of the courses contextualise mechanical engineering science principles with mini-projects and students will work in groups to produce a solution to an engineering problem.

The core courses of Design and Manufacture and Business Awareness, Safety and Sustainability are particularly aimed at bringing knowledge from all engineering science disciplines together in a project. The individual project in the final year allows students to become specialists in an area of their choice by working with an academic member of staff on a particular niche area of Mechanical Engineering.
