About the course
The mainstream Mechanical Engineering course at Brunel covers all the fundamental elements of mechanical engineering and design, and provides a background in related fields such as computing, electronics, electrical engineering, control, energy and environment. To give you greater commercial insight and awareness, you will also study elements of management, ethics, finance and law.
Mechanical engineering covers the design and development of every kind of machine – from supersonic fighter jets and super cars to bicycles and mobile phones. In fact, every product or service has probably been touched in some way by a mechanical engineer.
This course gives you a broad and solid grounding in the subject. The specialisms in this respected general degree include sustainability and mechatronics which can be applied across the manufacturing sector, or more specifically in areas such as biomedical engineering.
This course aims to produce mechanical engineering graduates equipped to play leading professional roles in industry and public service.
