BEng Mechanical Engineering

BEng Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering is the creative application of science and expertise to the design, construction and operation of products and processes.

From the design of jet engines and racing cars to the production of consumer goods, mechanical engineers are essential, and combine imagination with modern technology to offer innovative solutions to meet the complex requirements of society and industry.

In all industrial sectors, Chartered Mechanical Engineers develop well-designed products, manufacture them by efficient processes and sell them skilfully on world markets. Choosing this degree means that you will receive a sound training in the fundamentals and applications of engineering principles and can look forward to a challenging and rewarding career. There is a great deal of choice available to you at the Cardiff School of Engineering as it is one of a few Schools to offer both sandwich and full time MEng and BEng degree schemes in Mechanical Engineering.
