BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering with Professional Placement

University of Bath

Combine numeracy with detailed subject knowledge and initiative to solve complex engineering problems that improve the world we live in.

Our course teaches you how to use physical science, mathematics and computing to assess engineering systems. You'll combine this with creative innovation, and a focus on design and business to help give you the well-rounded set of skills professional engineers need.

At Bath, we take pride in playing a part in developing our students to not only fulfil their potential but also to prepare them for the challenges engineers face in the world beyond university. With this in mind, our course complements your engineering knowledge with transferable skills like complex problem solving and critical thinking. And it allows you to reflect on wider issues that impact engineering such as ethics, sustainability and environmental awareness.

All our mechanical engineering courses have the same structure in the first two years of study so you can move between any of our BEng and MEng courses up to the end of your second year.

Practical project work is central to your study experience. In your final year, you'll get the chance to put theory into practice with a semester-long, full-time individual projects. You can also join one of our teams to take part in international competitions such as Formula Student or the Shell Eco Marathon.
