  • BEng (Hon), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
This course is designed for students with a strong interest in developing smart mechanical systems. Drawing on our established expertise in Mechatronics, Robotics, Materials and Instrumentation, the course will produce engineers with a solid knowledge of mechanical systems, control, design and the interplay of these disciplines. Engineering has become a hi-tech discipline requiring integrated expertise across subject areas. For instance, a robot or an autonomous vehicle requires a mechanical platform with sophisticated drive mechanics and control. Employers increasingly require engineers to solve problems using innovative design approaches while improving efficiency and productivity. Therefore, this course teaches mechanical engineering with a strong emphasis on design and smart technologies. To achieve this, you will carry out hands-on projects combining your mechanical designs with control systems under the supervision of specialist academics. Course modules provide a solid grounding in mechanics, materials, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, mechatronics, control, instrumentation, mathematics, electronics, and programming. You will also benefit from the employability and career development activities offered across our degrees; these activities are informed by industrial interaction and include placement opportunities. The course has been designed to fulfil the requirements for Accreditation from the Engineering Council. The additional aims of our Year-in-Industry degree are to give students an opportunity to gain experience as engineers working in a professional environment and to develop employment-related skills. The placement year develops students’ technical skills, employability and soft skills as well as increasing their awareness of the future context for employment.

Canterbury is a great place for students, with loads of us about. There are a huge range of students from all over the world here, and everyone is really welcoming and friendly. The streets are beautiful, there are loads of great shops and cafes in town. Club Chemistry and Chill are where the majority of students go, but I found a lot of evenings went by nicely in The Penny Theatre, which has nice cheap pints and food. The professors are amazing, and the support services are constant and very helpful, and I felt completely supported academically.

    I have loved my 3 years at Kent. It really does feel like a family. The campus is amazing (especially if you like rabbits), there is lots of places to relax, study or socialise. The facility's are all in great condition and well thought out. Plenty of opportunity to get involved in extra things such as clubs, work, volunteering etc. Like any family it has its problems (mainly communication) but this is something they seem to be working on and the enthusiastic caring lecturers make up for it.

    I honestly love it. Literally my only criticism is that things can be expensive but its just about being reasonable and not going out for restaurant meals or personal shopping every week.
