Welcome to the Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences's website. We are home to 25 academic staff and around 450 students at all levels from undergraduate through to PhD. We offer a range of modular MEng and BEng undergraduate programmes in aerospace, mechanical, and medical engineering.
Our postgraduate taught programmes cover the subject areas of materials and biomedical engineering. Many of the modules making up these MSc's can also be taken as a short course designed to provide continuing professional development.
Alongside our teaching activities, the Department has a considerable range of research interests, carrying out research in fluid dynamics, materials & structures, biomedical engineering, robotics, structural integrity and vehicle engineering. Further details can be found on the research pages.
