**Overview** If you've got an interest in engineering and want to lead from the front by designing and building products that are smarter, faster and more efficient, this is the ideal course for you. On this BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering degree course, you'll learn the fundamentals of engineering science and design, including Computer-Aided Design (CAD), and specialise in more advanced subjects such as engineering programming and sustainable development. You'll create your own designs in our manufacturing workshops and have the option to get involved in the University's Formula Student racing team. After the course, you'll be set to work in engineering and technology in areas such as manufacturing and the armed forces. Or you could start you own specialist company. **On this course you'll:** - Learn about the underlying elements of successful engineering and manufacturing projects, including solid mechanics and dynamics, and electrical and electronic principles - Specialise in advanced subjects such as Computer-Aided Design (CAD) engineering, sustainable product development and design for quality - Use our CAD and rapid prototyping suites, energy systems lab, petroleum engineering lab, and metrology and 3D scanning microscopy facilities - Put your skills to the test by building your own products in our manufacturing workshops - Have to option to expand your learning and meet potential employers by completing your final-year project in industry - Get the chance to be involved in Formula Student, where you'll design, construct and test a competitive race car with fellow students **Work experience and career planning** To give you the best chance of securing a great job when you graduate, our Careers and Employability service can help you find relevant work experience during your course. We can help you identify placements, internships, voluntary roles and freelancing opportunities that will complement your studies. **Placement year** After your second year, you can do an optional work placement year to get valuable longer-term work experience in the industry. Previous students have been on placements to companies such as: - Rolls-Royce Motor Cars - Renishaw - Eaton In your placement year, you can also set up a business on your own or in a group. We'll help you secure a work placement that fits your aspirations. You'll get mentoring and support throughout the year. **Careers and opportunities** After the course, you'll be eligible to apply for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status and progress to Chartered Engineer status (CEng) with further study and experience. There's currently a shortage of talented engineers in the UK and abroad, so there will be many opportunities open to you when you graduate. Previous graduates have gone on to work in areas including: - product design - manufacturing and installation - project management - research development Roles our graduates have taken on include: - manufacturing engineer - product design engineer - aerospace engineer - application engineer Other graduates have continued their studies at postgraduate level or set up successful businesses with help and support from the University. After you leave the University, you can get help, advice and support for up to 5 years from our Careers and Employability service as you advance in your career. **Professional accreditations** This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). This course also meets the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC), which is set by the Engineering Council. These accreditations let potential employers know that this course gives you the relevant skills and abilities you need to work in the engineering industry when you graduate. This gives you an edge over students who didn't do an accredited course when you're applying for jobs.

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.

    Overall my university experience has been great and I would highly recommend Portsmouth due to the amount of investment they’re putting into it as it climbs the tables.
