Overview

The noise and vibration performance of many engineering designs is critical to their success. For example, reducing noise is a key requirement for aircraft, trains and domestic products. Acoustic principles can also be exploited to give an enhanced acoustic experience, for example by designing the sound of a car or the acoustics of a concert hall. This programme enables you to extend a firm grounding in mechanical engineering into the area of acoustical engineering in the 3rd and 4th years by taking acoustics courses taught by world-leading experts.

Programme structure

Years 1 and 2 are compulsory for all Mechanical Engineering themes and provide sound preparation for the final part of the degree.

In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to specialise taking modules designed for your theme. You will also undertake an individual project that usually takes the form of a design or research exercise, and involves the production of a formal report.

In Year 4, MEng students participate in a Group Design Project (GDP). These projects are often linked to current research activities or topics that have practical relevance to industry and represent a significant part of your Mechanical Engineering masters studies.

Career opportunities

Graduates of this integrated masters in Mechanical Engineering degree course are in high demand among employers from the private and public sector, and have entered careers including: graduate mechanical engineer, Royal Naval officer, associate (chartered accountant), helicopter engineer, applications engineer, consultant, graduate design engineer, research consultant, associate (management consultant), and development engineer.

If you are considering a career in the armed forces after the MEng in Mechanical Engineering, Southampton is one of the universities designated for the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme, which provides sponsored places to students on specific courses, and has active Army, Navy and Air Force units.

Among the organisations employing Mechanical Engineering graduates are: WS Atkins, AWE, IAC Aviation, GE Aviation, Johnson Matthey, Lloyds TSB, PricewaterhouseCoopers, QinetiQ, Royal Navy, Dysons, BAE Systems, BP, Dstl, Fluor Daniel, Jaguar, Schlumberger.
