You will have access to a wide range of laboratory and computing facilities to support your learning. We use industry standard software for teaching all aspects of Computer Aided Design and analysis.

You will use specialist automotive engineering laboratories equipped with test vehicles, a chassis dynamometer, and engine test beds.

We have dedicated 3D printing/ manufacturing facilities/workshops which you will use for project work. Over your program of study you will have access to our world class polymer processing and material characterisation laboratories.

Study support

You will have a Personal Academic Tutor, normally your individual project supervisor, to support you through regular meetings and interactive activities, acting as an independent source of advice and guidance on making the transition to Higher Education and assisting you with any questions or problems you may encounter.

In addition to standard study support through taught sessions, our Virtual Learning Environment allows you to access resources, participate in group work and submit work from anywhere in the world 24/7.

Our research underpins every level of your programme of study. You will be taught by academics who are working at the forefront of their engineering discipline. This enables us explore with you how theoretical principles are being applied to solve real world challenges.

Your individual project gives you access to our research facilities and provides you with an opportunity to become involved in a much larger research project being carried out with our industrial partners.

Our Mechanical and Process Engineering Research Group undertakes a range of fundamental and applied research projects.
