This is a broad area focusing on the design and development of products and processes. Mechanical engineering has a strong product and equipment design element, while manufacturing engineering analyses the processes and systems required to produce goods.
This is a four year honours degree, which prepares students for employment in a very broad range of engineering situations.
This course has recently been modified to include the following specialised streams:
- Additive Manufacturing
- Biomedical Engineering
- Green Technology and Alternative Energy Systems
- Robotics & Automation
- Systems Integration and Industry 4.0.
These streams may also be reflected in the Placement module in Year 3 and in the two-semester long Final Year Project. This will allow the students to accumulate a possible 60 credits in their chosen stream in the final two years of this programme.
Please note that not all streams may run in any given year.
Industrial placement takes place in semester 6, which can be up to six months duration (March – September). These placements have been very successful at providing for the students a perspective on the broad variety of material that they have covered in the course.
