Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools. It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.
The engineering field requires an understanding of core concepts including mechanics, kinematics, thermodynamics, materials science, structural analysis, and electricity. Mechanical engineers use these core principles along with tools like computer-aided engineering and product lifecycle management to design and analyze manufacturing plants, industrial equipment and machinery, heating and cooling systems, transport systems, aircraft, watercraft, robotics, medical devices, and others.

Mechanical engineering is the most broadly-based of the engineering professions

Mechanical engineers are involved at some stage in the conception, design, production, finance and marketing of all manufactured goods. These could range from the largest power station, space craft and car plant to delicate mechanisms required for scientific instruments, heart valves or micro-surgery.

You could be involved in the aerospace industry, environmental technology, the defence industry, computing, biotechnology, the energy industry or even sports engineering.

There is a shortage of engineers the UK, therefore there are excellent job prospects for mechanical engineers, and currently 70% of graduates go into full-time careers associated with engineering.

In recent years our graduates have worked for companies such as Corus, Royal Navy, EDF Energy, Dyson and Kellogg, Brown and Root.
