The Mechanical Engineering degree is built on a branch of engineering that is concerned with machines and the production of power, and particularly with forces and motion. It focuses on the core task of Mechanical Engineers - devising new and better ways to extract mechanical power from heat and to use that power to perform useful tasks.

You develop a solid understanding of thermodynamics, mechanical systems dynamics, properties of solid materials, fluid dynamics, design and management.

The Mechanical Engineering program focuses on building high-level project management skills and engineering expertise.

As a Mechanical Engineer, you could work in the automotive, aerospace and transport industries, power generation, refineries, insurance industries, building services, railway systems design, consumer goods design and production and management consultancies.
