Program Overview

The BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bolton has been awarded professional accreditation by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and uses UK-SPEC learning outcomes designed to meet in part the academic requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

This course may also be studied as a part-time option on a dedicated one day a week basis. It's ideal if you're an HND student looking to top-up your qualification to degree standard. Year 2 or 3 HND students will be selected according to their level of mathematics, science, and experience. If you’re interested in a degree apprenticeship, the department is actively looking at collaboration with local companies.

The department provides a friendly, yet challenging, environment where the emphasis is on both the theories and principles of mechanical engineering and their application in a work context. You’ll carry out case studies, practical and laboratory work and problem-solving projects. You’ll also develop the presentation and managerial skills that you'll need to manage engineering projects and support your future employment in the industry.

Highlights

  • You’ll have the opportunity to work on live engineering projects, both as an individual and as part of a group.
  • There are also opportunities to participate in inter-university student competitions including the IMechE’s annual undergraduate design challenge, which includes all the universities in the North West.
  • Professionals from national and multinational mechanical engineering firms are regularly invited to give guest lectures about the sector and job opportunities. You’ll also have industry visits and work placements.
  • You’ll get hands-on experience using state-of-the-art equipment and software such as SolidWorks, Ansys, and MATLAB, for analysis and design, prototyping and control.
  • Your final year project allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding when investigating and providing solutions to engineering problems. Some projects may be on ‘live’ problems from local industry or in-house research activity.

Key Features

  • Our engineering department has a strong tradition in the field of engineering education and high-quality engineering courses have been delivered successfully at Bolton for many years.
  • It has modern, dedicated engineering laboratories and state-of-the-art design development and project facilities. These include CAD, analysis, optimisation, CAM and CAE software.
  • You’ll be taught in a supportive learning environment with small class sizes. Your tutors are experienced professionals and academics, highly qualified in their fields, and many of them are chartered engineers.
  • We’ll encourage you to develop an understanding of all aspects of engineering projects; for example, costings, the science and maths of these projects, functional design materials, and project management.
  • You’ll have opportunities to develop business skills for a career in this field, including problem-solving, managing workloads, and communicating with a range of personnel. You’ll also be able to develop your decision-making abilities and your ICT capabilities.
  • Our mechanical engineering graduates enjoy high levels of employment, finding interesting and financially rewarding professional careers in the UK and overseas.
