A level maths in engineering

How representative is the mechanics module, from a level maths, of mechanical engineering.
Would I need to study further mechanics for a better insight?
A-level mechanics is a nice introduction to some of the principles however mechanical engineering extends far beyond. It basically introduces a topic called kinematics & solid mechanics. I would say mechanical engineering at university is probably more similar to a blend of he pure maths in A-level maths & further maths with the applications of forces & energy.

I would say mechanical engineering is a really great degree:
- If you enjoy maths (all of A-level maths), this is basically the toolkit of an engineer
- You are very inquisitive about technology, you just like learning how things work, you like to explore "things"

Probably reasonably accurate for the degree.
