Overview

The Mechanical Engineering programme offered by the University of South Wales is delivered in two major blocks that offer an intensive but flexible learning pattern, with two entry opportunities for applicants each year (February and September). Modules are taught through lectures, tutorials and practical laboratory work.

The range of modules will enhance the depth of your knowledge, while developing the skills to manage people and projects. You will use state-of-the-art engineering analysis software, and employ appropriate analytical and computer-based techniques. Additionally, you will gain an awareness of wider issues such as environmental management and safety.

Your dissertation will allow you to research a specific topic, based on real issues that organisations face. Staff are active in research and/or consultancy, which brings relevant case studies and context to the subjects you will study.

Careers

Mechanical engineers work in areas as diverse as design, research and development, environmental engineering, numerical analysis, computer modelling, use of materials, and control systems. 

In such a competitive industry, having a postgraduate qualification in mechanical engineering will improve your career prospects and mechanical engineering graduates are likely to progress to occupy senior positions in the engineering industry and related sectors.
