I want to apply for a mechanical engineering degree, and I'm planning on doing an EPQ to back up the application. I'm studying (in order of preference) maths, chemistry, biology and psychology (which I'm dropping), and I have been getting low A's and high B's in maths and chemistry all year (I've recently sterted getting B's in biology).
So, no physics. I know this isn't ideal, but Manchester uni says it'll consider maths students who do M1 and M2 (this is me), but I feel like the EPQ would just show I have a deeper interest in the field of engineering.
The idea I am considering is comparing jet engines with internal combustion engines, and suggesting future uses for each type (or what currently prevents them from being used in certain ways). I've never heard of anyone doing this before, but does this mean it's not doable? Or is the topic too mainstream and I've just not heard?
All/any constructive feedback about my EPQ idea - or studying mech eng at Uni in general - will be greatly appreciated!
Is my engineering EPQ idea good enough?
