Overview

This programme has been developed in conjunction with the Ship Science Group to provide detailed understanding of marine systems engineering and design balanced with a broad-based training in the key principles of mechanical engineering. Mandatory and optional modules in management, marine law and maritime safety help students to develop a range of skills that are particularly suitable for those interested in engineering management. The modules, particularly maritime safety, help to develop expertise in key subject areas required to achieve Chartered Engineer status. This programme is available for all MEng Mechanical Engineering students and is also suited for students on the Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS) hoping to pursue a career as an engineering officer in the Royal Navy.

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. In the third and fourth years you will participate in individual, group, and multidisciplinary projects.

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.
