The Brunel Mechanical Engineering MEng gives students interested in pursuing careers in mechanical engineering an extra year of advanced study and training that will deepen your knowledge of the subject, expand your skill sets and put you on a fast-track to becoming a chartered engineer.
  • As with our Mechanical Engineering BEng degree, you’ll get a thorough grounding in the core principles of engineering science including solid body mechanics, thermodynamics and materials science as well as in the fundamentals of product design, development and manufacturing.
  • You’ll also get training in related disciplines integral to the profession such as computing, electrical engineering and electronics.
  • And, as mechanical engineers not only design exciting products but venture into managing projects and companies, you’ll study elements of management, ethics, finance and law.
  • In your final year, along with studying specialist topics taught at master’s degree level, you’ll take part in a major group project to design and manufacture a product. This will give you valuable experience working in a team-based environment and on-the-job opportunities to develop your leadership and management skills, competencies sought by employers.
  • Recent examples of projects include a novel means of filtering water and applying fuel-cell technology to motorcycles.
  • Throughout your studies you’ll have use of our modern, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and 24-hour access to industry standard engineering design software at dedicated computer clusters on campus, so you’ll have the opportunity and equipment to explore ideas and tackle problems.
  • Our mechanical engineering MEng course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).We offer two study options. You can choose four years full-time or five years full-time with a one-year professional placement that will give you the chance to apply what you’ve learned to a real-life working environment.
  • If you start on the full-time course, you can transfer to the professional development option, which includes the placement, at any time before the end of Level 2.
  • In a world where business, government and society depend more and more on technology, graduates with the knowledge and skills to design and build the machines and processes driving the technological innovation are in demand, particularly those with higher qualifications. Your Brunel MEng will give you that expertise and stand you in good stead for a rewarding career in engineering.

EU and International entry requirements

  • If you require a Tier 4 visa to study in the UK, you must prove knowledge of the English language so that we can issue you a Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS). To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.

English language requirements

  • IELTS: 6 (min 5.5 in all areas)
  • Pearson: 59 (59 in all sub scores)
  • BrunELT: 58% (min 55% in all areas)
  • TOEFL: 79 (min R18, L17, S20, W17)
  • The course is designed to give you an in-depth understanding of how mechanical objects work and a fast-track route to qualification as a chartered engineer. You’ll study the scientific principles that govern how machines operate and the design and development processes involved in creating or improving mechanical devises.
  • Your mechanical engineering degree consists of compulsory modules and major independent and group projects.
  • This course can be studied 4 years full-time or 5 years full-time with placement, starting in September.
