Why study mechanical engineering?
Engineers constantly ask questions and explore new ideas. They play a vital role in developing the world around us from the initial design and manufacture of products to their development, management or marketing. A degree in Mechanical Engineering will challenge you and transform the way you learn. Develop your understanding of stress analysis, dynamics, heat transfer, mechatronics, materials and manufacture, and math.
You'll build core skills that you'll take with you through your career, such as innovation, teamwork and creativity. Join us in using the power of engineering to explore, take risks and find ways to change the world for the better.
