Course Description

You will study areas such as structural mechanics, electrical circuits, fluids and powder dynamics, and thermodynamics. The final year includes a master's-level engineering project that will develop your teamwork and leadership skills.

At the end of the course, you should be equipped for a career as a professional mechanical engineer in areas such as high-value manufacturing and the automotive and aerospace industries.

The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, indicating that this degree is ideal preparation for aspiring professional engineers.

  • This is an IET accredited course
  •  You'll study at the only university in Kent to offer a full range of engineering courses with the use of specialist labs
  •  Benefit from our strong links to local industry (e.g. Ford, Delphi, BAE Systems, Cummins Power Generation, Southern Water, South Eastern Trains).
