Mechanical engineering is essential for the automotive, aeronautical, robotics, construction, software, oil/ gas, manufacturing, renewable energy and building services sectors. There are currently shortages of mechanical engineers and, by taking this course, you’ll have plenty of career options.
The first year of the course provides a foundational grounding in engineering. You’ll then study more advanced principles of mechanics, manufacturing technology, energy systems and engineering design, potentially working on projects with companies such as Nissan, BAE Systems and Airbus. We encourage you to spend a full year in industry between your second and fourth years. Your final year is your integrated masters year that provides you with in-depth knowledge you need to fulfil the academic requirement to be a Chartered Engineer, which is associated with higher salaries.
By the end of this course you’ll be in an excellent position to become an engineering professional. Engineering is a growth industry and currently there is a shortage of engineers. 90% of our graduates are in work or study within six months of graduating and, of those in work, 80% are employed in a professional or managerial job (Unistats 2015).
Whatever you decide to do, you’ll have strong employability as a result of having acquired the characteristics of a Northumbria graduate. These include critical reflection and self-learning, collaboration and curiosity, and the ability to apply your knowledge to solve problems in ways that are sustainable and ethical.
