The everyday tools you use – the phone in your pocket, the train on your morning commute, the car you drive – each relies on ambitious and innovative engineers. At the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering, we’re helping solve societal problems through creative and practical engineering solutions, combined with technical academic knowledge.
Our engineers make a positive difference locally and globally through their work and research – from using artificial intelligence to improve powered wheelchairs, to creating more efficient solar panels and lightweight manufacturing materials.
We have an open and welcoming culture, with experienced and supportive lecturers and experts, and a focus on practical skills and employability. We’ve got a proven track record of producing sought after graduates – 92% of our previous students are in work or further study 15 months after graduation (HESA Graduate Outcomes Survey conducted in 2019).
