BEng in Mechanical Engineering (Full Time)

City University London

Bachelor Degree , Mechanical Engineering

Course Description

Our Mechanical Engineering degree is ideal for practically minded, creative individuals who relish problem-solving and have a strong desire to design and optimise advanced machines through the novel application of science and mathematics.

This BEng Mechanical Engineering undergraduate programme encourages critical thinking and foster curiosity through both teamwork and independent study. The design exercises provide the opportunity for students to be engaged in cross-disciplinary challenges, preparing the way for tackling larger problems that span traditional engineering boundaries. The courses are led by academic staff from our active Research Centres, supported by specialist professionals from industry.

Our Mechanical engineering degree encompasses the remarkably successful disciplines of material sciences, thermodynamics, solid and fluid mechanics and robotics.

This degree will train you in all aspects necessary for a successful career as a mechanical engineer.

Course Content

Year 1

Year one is common to all of the engineering courses. Students study the science (largely physics) and mathematics that underpin engineering principles. They are also instructed in how to develop computer program, a skill that is evermore relevant and valuable. Group exercises provide students with the opportunities to undertake preliminary engineering designs.

  • Mathematics I, EX1010 20 credits
  • Engineering Science, ET1060 20 credits
  • Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics I, ET1070 20 credits
  • Solid Mechanics, ET1080 20 credits
  • Electronics, ET1061 20 credits
  • Design I, ET090 20 credits
  • Personal & Professional Development, ET1000 5 credits

Year 2

Students begin to specialise in year two, advancing their knowledge of solid and fluid mechanics while also studying measurement, data analysis and mechatronics. Students registered on the BEng degree, who average at least 60 per cent at the end of year two, are encouraged to transfer to the MEng degree.

  • Mathematics II, EX2010 20 credits
  • Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics II, ET2070 20 credits
  • Structural Mechanics, ET2080 20 credits
  • Mechatronics, ET2063 20 credits
  • Measurement and Data, ET2082 20 credits
  • Design II: Mechanical, ME2400 20 credits

Year 3

The third year places increasing emphasis on mechanical design. Modules include: fluid mechanics, mechatronics and control, structural analysis, fluid mechanics and heat transfer and engineering management.

  • Structural Analysis, ME3401 20 credits
  • Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer, ME3407 20 credits
  • Mechatronics and Control, ME3405 20 credits
  • Engineering Management, Reliability and Sustainability, ME3403 20 credits
  • Design III: Mechanical, ME3400 20 credits
  • BEng Individual Project, ET3106 20 credits

Entry Requirements

We may demonstrate some flexibility of entry requirements in Clearing. This will depend on the results we receive and the number of spaces we have available.

Applications through Clearing are likely to be considered on a case by case basis, but an indication of the level at which offers may be considered for International Baccalaureatestudents is as follows:

  • 28 points and above, including Higher Level Mathematics at grade 5, OR;
  • 28 points and above, including Standard Level Mathematics at grade 7 and Higher Level Physics at grade 5

If you are an applicant who has completed qualifications outside of the UK then we encourage you to visit our country pages ahead of calling our Clearing hotline. On these pages you will find information on equivalent grades City will be applying during the Clearing process for students applying from Bulgaria, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain and the USA.

Entry requirements in Clearing for A-Level students will be published on 15th August. Details of the standard entry requirements for 2019 are shown below.

Standard requirements

  • 'A' Level: BBB (including ‘A’ Level Mathematics).
  • Tariff: 120 tariff points including ‘A’ Level Mathematics. See the UCAS website for information on the new tariff.
  • BTEC: D*DD in Engineering with minimum grade B in ‘A’ Level Mathematics or Physics.

The following is also required:

  • GCSE: A minimum of grade 4(C) in GCSE English.

Other suitable qualifications

  • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ): We welcome applications that include the EPQ. Where relevant, this may be included in our offer, resulting in an ‘A’ Level offer reduced by one grade.

If you do not qualify for direct entry, you may wish to take a foundation programme first. These programmes are designed to prepare students for entry to City's undergraduate courses.

English requirements

If your first language is not English, we will require evidence of English language proficiency. We accept the following:

  • IELTS: 6.0 overall with a minimum 6.0 in each component
  • IB: English as a first language, standard level grade 4 and as a second language, higher level grade 4

English language programmes

Don’t meet the English language requirements? INTO City, University of London offers English language programmes to help prepare you for study at university. These intensive and flexible courses are designed to improve your English ability for entry to degree courses.

  • Academic English
  • Pre-sessional English
