Most of what you see has been made, developed or modified by an engineer. Meeting the challenges of the changing world, there will always be a demand for mechanical engineers. This course encompasses the design, development, manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of engineered products.
WHY STUDY THIS COURSE?
This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) which means that it meets all of the academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). It also fulfils some of the academic requirements to become a Chartered Engineer (CEng). We pay Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) student membership fees for all of our students.
MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE
The £100 million that the university has invested in its buildings and facilities over the past 10 years includes our computer-aided design and rapid prototyping suites, energy systems lab, petroleum engineering lab, metrology and 3D scanning microscopy facilities.
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?
This course is ideal for students who enjoy practical, hands-on, problem-based learning.
SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED
On this course you can create your own designs in our manufacturing workshops, you can get involved in the University of Portsmouth Formula Student racing team, and you can apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry which will put you ahead of the field when applying for graduate jobs.
AFTER THE COURSE
It is generally accepted that there is a current shortage of engineers and our courses are aimed at educating engineers for a multitude of different careers in engineering and technology. Not only does this course meet the requirements of the major engineering graduate programmes, it gives you the chance to sample the workplace with a year-long industrial placement. Placement employers may even offer a sponsorship for your remaining years of study, a job offer on graduation, or both.
You will begin the course with the foundations of engineering science and engineering design, including some computer-aided design. You'll also get the chance to manufacture a product of your own design. In your second year you'll study further mathematics and engineering science, engineering materials, manufacturing and business, instrumentation and control, and computer-aided engineering. In your final year you will cover solid mechanics, manufacturing systems and sustainable development. There is also a range of topics for you to tailor your studies as well as practical project work.
A range of assessment methods encourages a deeper understanding of engineering and allows you to develop your skills. We assess your work through written examinations, coursework, practical tests, project work and presentations.

There’s a lot to love in Pompey, a city geared towards students with loads of great bars, pubs, and shops. The nightlife is incredible, loads of student nights on and everyone is up for it. The main place to go out is the strip of clubs by the Guildhall, although there are lots of little places if you seek them out. The uni is also amazingly supportive, with great facilities and the Purple Door offering great careers support for all students, and the SU is also really helpful as well as serving amazing drinks and food.
