Course Description

Design is a key integrating element in all years of the programme. You will learn real-world engineering, the importance of communication, team working skills, entrepreneurship initiatives, an emphasis for environmental sustainability, a mind-set for lifelong learning, appropriate management principles and business acumen. Engineering science and design are core disciplines in this programme whilst other important areas are control, electronics, IT, manufacturing technology, and mathematics. Projectwork will form a significant part of your final year. In year three, MEng students undertake a major group project. Up to four students will work as a multidisciplinary team to design, manufacture, and test their prototype, as well as develop a business plan to market their product. All students will undertake an individual project in their final year. The project is commonly experimental, computational or analytical in nature; and it will provide a link relating academic understanding, research methods, and professional ethics. You will be able to choose your individual project topic, most of which are based upon real industrial problems.

Career Prospects

We aim to prepare you for an exciting career, and when you graduate you will be an independent professional highly sought after by employers. As a graduate of one of the best mechanical engineering departments in the world, your Nottingham qualification will give you the freedom to choose from a range of exciting opportunities.

Graduates of both of our courses become mechanical, sales, design or maintenance engineers in a range of sectors. These include power generation, civil structure, manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, chemical, computers, marine, bioengineering and paper. Those choosing the MEng route can also become project managers.

All fees are in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) currency unless stated otherwise.
