Description

Description
The objectives of the Mechanical Engineering programme are:
To provide students with a solid background in design, manufacturing, dynamics, material science, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics for application within an industrial context.
To build engineering skills of critical importance when working in industry, including the ability to break a complex engineering problem into its component parts and prepare technical reports.
Harvest critical awareness and the ability to critique different design solutions including aspects such as environmental constraints, economy or health and safety.
To develop computer modelling and interpret computational analysis through exposure to industrial facing project work.
To build team working skills to reflect the working environment of multi-disciplinary engineering teams.
