How You Study
The Mechanical Engineering programme utilises problem- and project-based learning. We aim to narrow the gap between employers' requirements and our graduates' skills to improve employability and help facilitate their transition from higher education to work.
The first year of the degree is designed to provide a foundation in engineering theory and practice. Students are supported in their development of important technical skills, such as computer-aided design and workshop skills. The second and third years offer a range of specialist modules. At each stage of the course, there are opportunities to practise and develop engineering skills on real-life problems through project work.

How You Are Assessed
Assessment on the programme is designed to measure and assess engineering technical and analytical skills as well as professional soft skills including oral and written communication, team working, long-life learning, problem-solving, project management, and planning and organisation.
In addition to traditional exams, coursework assignments are used in a number of modules where students are required to work on their own or in small groups. They are designed to enable students to develop and show their understanding of the module content. Oral presentations are often included as part of coursework to provide opportunities for developing essential communication skills.
Students are expected to complete an individual project in their final year of the degree course, providing an excellent opportunity to pull together every aspect of their development during the course.
Recorded lectures are also made available for part-time and distance-based learning students. These can also be accessed by full-time students.
Scholarships and Funding
For eligible undergraduate students going to university for the first time, scholarships and bursaries are available to help cover costs. The University of Lincoln offers a variety of merit-based and subject-specific bursaries and scholarships.
Program Tuition Fee
Professional engineers are in demand in the UK and overseas. Graduates may pursue a variety of career paths in areas such as control systems, power and energy, and mechanical and materials engineering.
