Mechanical Engineering

Earning a bachelor's degree is achieved by completing the necessary course of study offered by the college or university you enroll in. Completing this study may take three to seven years depending on where you seek your degree.

Mechanical engineers almost always need to have the ability to analyze and design objects and systems with motion. This includes small individual parts, like micro-sensors, and large complex machines, like control systems for airplanes and spacecraft.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom and Britain, is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe.The two most famous (and oldest) universities are Oxford and Cambridge (often referred to as Oxbridge by many Britons) England also has several other world-class institutions, including several in London (notably Imperial College, the London School of Economics, University College London and King's College London, all are part of London University)

Best Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering in United Kingdom 2017/2018. Mechanical Engineering keeps the world moving, from bicycles to bi-planes, catapults to cranes, supercars to satellites and everything in between. Mechanical Engineers apply the fundamentals of science and mathematics to create practical, useful solutions that the rest of us can use. If it moves, or contains moving parts, mechanical engineers are behind it. They use the earth’s energy and natural resources intelligently and efficiently to come up with optimum and cost effective solutions. Our Mechanical Engineering degree programme prepares students for careers as professional mechanical engineers with the focus on innovation, analysis and development within a wide range of advanced engineering technologies. The first year of all of our engineering degree programmes at the University of Greenwich focuses on the understanding of engineering science fundamental principles. This approach ensures that all of our graduates experience a solid foundation of broad technical knowledge and a working understanding of all the major Engineering disciplines – an essential prerequisite for a successful career in engineering management. At the end of the 1st year, students will be invited to choose to either continue on their initial degree programme or to swap to any of the other engineering degree programmes on offer. We feel it is very important that our students are empowered to be able to choose the degree programmes that are most appropriate for their ambitions and goals and we recognise that those may change during your studies with us as you learn more...

From cars to robots; from aircraft to DVD players; and from power stations to medical implants, almost all man-made systems involve Mechanical Engineering in one form or another. Mechanical systems, mechanisms and machines lie at the heart of our traditional engineering industries, and the skill and techniques associated with them continue to be essential knowledge, although often used very differently to even 20 years ago. In recent years these basic skills have been extended to the areas of precision engineering, nano-technology and mechatronics. At Warwick, Mechanical Engineers follow a programme in years 1 and 2 that introduces basic design and analysis techniques, and develops technical, business and personal skills. Subsequent years build on these elements, presenting material within the key areas of technology, design, materials, analysis and management. Core Mechanical Engineering topics are supplemented by a range of optional modules and electives enabling students to steer their courses to suit their interests and career needs. Modules cover topics as diverse as: the design of an aircraft wing; the computer modelling of car suspension systems; the optical gauging of a moving turbine blade; and the design of micro-electromechanical systems. Situated close to the UK’s industrial heartland, Warwick works with many of the country’s leading companies.
