BEng in Mechanical Engineering with Management (Full Time)

University of Manchester

Course Description

Engineering is not just about technology. It is about people, companies, manufacturing and commerce.

Engineering decisions must normally be made within a commercial context and engineers are often found in senior management positions where they are required to be leaders and strategic planners, as well as problem-solvers and designers.

Combining engineering with management produces a lively, interesting and multidisciplinary degree, with excellent career prospects for graduates.

You emerge from this degree as a well-rounded graduate with not only a solid engineering training, but also a useful insight into the commercial world. This will equip you for a wide range of careers, including general management and sales, as well as jobs in more technical fields.

As in Mechanical Engineering BEng, in addition to core and optional units in the third year, you will also undertake a major individual research project.

A-level

Grades AAB in any order in Mathematics, Physics and one other subject.

Practical skills are a crucial part of science education and therefore there will be a requirement to pass the practical element of any science A Level taken.

Where applicants are applying for science and related degrees, this is likely to be made explicit in the offers you will receive.

AS-level

AS level results are not considered as part of the standard admissions process at The University of Manchester.

The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires that every student from outside the UK and the EU must show evidence of a minimum level of English Language in order to be granted a UK visa (Tier 4 visa) to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level. This level is often referred to as the 'B2 level'.

Additionally, our individual departments may ask for specific English Language proficiency levels that are necessary for their academic programmes. In most cases these requirements are likely to be higher than the B2 level. Further information about our English Language policy, including a list of some of the English Language qualifications we accept, can be found  here .

Assessment Methods

Most course units are assessed through an examination (at the end of the semester) and coursework which is undertaken throughout the year.  Parts of the coursework are, in many instances, associated with practical laboratory sessions, whilst others may be based on problem sheets, reports etc. A few subjects, for example Design, are assessed purely on coursework. For detailed information about how different subjects are assessed, please see the course unit specifications below.
