Mechanical engineering sciences

Mechanical, automotive and aerospace engineers have made the machines we use today possible and they’re developing the technologies we’ll rely on tomorrow. Biomedical engineers, meanwhile, apply engineering principles to solve medical problems, enabling human mobility in amputees or those with serious illnesses in ways not previously possible.

Mechanical engineering sciences are arguably the broadest and most fundamental of the engineering disciplines, making them a stimulating and engaging field to study.

Our Department of Mechanical Engineering Sciences delivers our degrees in mechanical, aerospace, automotive and biomedical engineering. Here, you’ll have access to a variety of industry-standard facilities, including our state-of-the-art Design Centre and the UK’s only environmental wind tunnel.

All our courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, with our Aerospace Engineering course accredited by RAeSoc and our Biomedical Engineering accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology.
