Course summary

Our MEng Mechanical Engineering course extends your technical understanding of engineering while developing the knowledge of business processes to become a professional engineering manager.

You’ll learn the core skills offered by the BEng qualification and add a deeper level of technical knowledge for what is the highest award for undergraduate study in engineering.

This course teaches you to use your initiative and take active responsibility in a series of case studies, practical and laboratory work and problem-solving projects.

You’ll have the option to extend your study to five years by adding a one-year industrial placement between your second and third years. 

During your third year of study you’ll undertake a Team Project, and in your final year you’ll complete a dissertation on an industrially relevant topic.

Throughout the course you’ll have regular contact with blue-chip companies and industry leaders in the sector who’ll host visits and work placements and provide regular guest speakers to UEL.

As part of the Tier 4 student visa requirements, UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) estimate that you will need £1,265* per month to cover your living costs. It includes expenses for accommodation, food and drink, travel within London, text books, entertainment, clothing, toiletries and laundry. Most Tier 4 students are required to show they have sufficient funds to cover the first nine months of the course before they start- a total of £11,385- in addition to the tuition fees. You can find more information about the specific requirements of the Tier 4 student visa here. The amount that you will spend can vary depending on your lifestyle. The UKCISA International Student Calculator can help you plan and manage your money. Please make sure you also factor in the fees for the visa application and immigration health surcharge when budgeting.

* Please note the Immigration Rules are subject to change and this figure is likely to be increased by UKVI year on year. Please therefore check our ISA pages for more information at the time of preparing your visa application.

What you'll learn

Mechanical engineers design, create and build mechanical devices that use mechanical motion. You’ll learn to apply the fundamentals of science and maths to create practical, useful solutions to relevant problems.

This course is built on a strong foundation of theory, reinforced by practical experience and innovation. It also features modules in new and emerging technologies.

Throughout your studies, you’ll acquire not only an understanding of general engineering principles but also a range of transferable skills, including the ability to contribute to team projects.

You’ll gain a knowledge and understanding of mechanical and electrical engineering principles, dynamics, solid mechanics, fluids, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), thermodynamics, heat transfer, control systems, computing techniques, mechatronics, manufacturing processes, material, energy technologies and sustainability.

You’ll also have the chance to undertake an advanced treatment of core mechanical engineering disciplines such as design analysis, dynamic systems, CFD, advanced materials, control systems and sustainable energy technologies.

What you'll study and when

We consistently review our courses to ensure we are up-to-date with industry changes and requirements from our graduates. As a result, our modules are subject to change.

How you'll be assessed

The way we assess you varies from module to module and meets UEL assessment criteria. It
may include time-constrained assessments such as end-of-module exams or online tests, coursework, individual and group project work, laboratory reports and tests in theoretical and practical sessions.

Course specification

How you'll learn

You’ll be guided by an academic team with many years’ experience of working in or being closely connected to directly relevant industry. 

These links are vital in organising student visits and guest speakers at the University of East London. They’re also hugely helpful when it comes to organising placement year options. 

Regular contact with our industrial liaison advisory board maintains the currency of our courses and therefore the employment and career paths of our graduates.

You'll have access to superb laboratory facilities and computer suites that will allow you, among many other things, to use simulation and modelling application software for virtual design and manufacturing.

During the final year of the course you’ll be required to complete independent research and study of a technical subject in the form of a dissertation.

This dissertation will be supervised by a member of the academic staff with an interest in the subject and must have an industrial dimension. It will include laboratory work or the analysis of a specific engineering problem. And it often requires students to take an idea through to a working model.

Your future career

Some of your work will be done individually, some within groups. All of it will boost your prospects of securing a rewarding career.

There is a strong management theme throughout this course that will prepare you for a career as someone who directs the process of mechanical engineering. It will enable you to interact with a broad range of clients and employers from small business to large multinationals and government authorities.

One of the many advantages of UEL’s links with local industry is that a number of visits from professionals in the field can also turn into informal interviews for full and part-time employment opportunities, as well as work placements.

The list of prime industry links includes Atkins, Vinci, Crossrail, Thames Water, WSP and Canary Wharf Contractors.

Key local engineering employers judge an annual showcase event involving student projects – offering what could be a crucial opportunity to impress.

Mechanical engineering is widely held to be one of the most diverse engineering disciplines as it deals with the design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of any machinery. More disciplines – more jobs.

As well as having a huge choice of employment within manufacturing, aerospace, automotive and marine engineering, graduates also have opportunities in areas such as the aircraft industry and the energy sector.
