Overview

Design is a crucial factor in engineering-based industries, and most of modern design methods in engineering are computer-based. This MEng degree programme combines the sound fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering with specialist study of Computational Engineering and Engineering Design, focussing on the relation between computation and design. The first two years of this degree are common with the MEng Mechanical Engineering (H301), followed by specialisation in years three and four through a range of subject themes, taught by specialists. Specialist modules include: Computation and Design, Engineering Design, Finite Element Analysis, Manufacturing, Design Search and Optimisation, Applications of CFD, Advanced FEA, Computational Engineering I & II, with a range of optional modules. In the third year you will do an individual project, and in the fourth year you will participate in a group design project in which you will work with engineering students from different specialisms.

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