Mechanical Engineering offers an exciting and fulfilling career that allows the practitioner to continue to learn and develop throughout their career. This program aims to provide graduates with the skills and competencies that will allow them to contribute to local, national, and international industries. DkIT Mechanical engineering graduates have an established record of high-level career achievement in both technical and management engineering roles. Mechanical engineering is required by every industry sector. Graduates must be adaptable and familiar with cutting-edge technology. In addition, graduates must show initiative, communicate with clients, and demonstrate creative problem-solving traits that are much in demand in the labor market. Careers include product design, aerospace, energy, transport, renewable systems, pharmaceuticals, food processing, the agri-machine sector, and research. Course modules are a mixture of theoretical (e.g. mechanics, fluids, heat, mathematics) and practical (e.g. materials, manufacturing, and computer-aided design). Added to this is a range of modules that allow the graduate to apply their technical knowledge to an employment setting (e.g. management, computers, and project work). Mechanical engineers are in huge demand by local and national industries for their broad-ranging technical skills and versatility. The program features a work placement in year 3 to allow you to immerse yourself in an industrial setting before graduation.
