Mechanical Engineering combines skills needed to conceive, design and produce the moving parts, components and machinery used in every aspect of manufacture.
Modern mechanical engineers use sophisticated computer-aided design and engineering skills to ensure their products are reliable, efficient and economic.
Computer-aided design and manufacturing (CADCAM) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) are covered in depth. Considerable time is spent on practical work in the state-of-the-art laboratory.
This course comprises an extra fourth academic year of more in-depth study, and provides all the formal educational requirements necessary to present yourself for CEng registration.

Most modules use a mixture of formal lectures, practical lab sessions, tutorials and seminars. Some modules involve supervised group work, usually with an assigned academic staff member for each group. All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners. Assessments for modules mostly take the form of practical coursework, lab tests and written exams, with all forms being well represented throughout all years of the course across all modules.

The societies are really welcoming! The campus is compact and really fun! As for the city, new student pubs are sprouting up everywhere and there's loads of great films to see at the BIFF every year,. It may not be the most glam city in the country, but there’s plenty to see and do in Bradford and it’s great for students.

I was not too impressed. The social side of university is very improved, and definitely well established.
However, the safety and hygiene in/surrounding ''The Green'' was worrying, due to multiple cases of assaults and robberies taking place and rodents seen running around the accomodation
