Mechanical engineerers apply their scientific knowledge to solving problems and designing machines that help us to enjoy a better lifestyle. They work in every sector of industry, in areas such as design, development, research, consultancy, and manufacture or marketing, combining technical and managerial expertise. Mechanical engineering is the broadest of all the engineering disciplines and graduates find employment in every sector of industry. The course provides an excellent foundation in engineering science and design and also offers opportunities to develop specialist knowledge in areas such automotive and aerospace engineering.
For domestic students the course structure follows the Chinese higher education system and is based on a four-year program with the possibility of spending two years at The University of Nottingham's UK campus.
For international students the course structure follows the UK higher education system and is based on a three-year program with the possibility of spending two years at The University of Nottingham's UK campus.
Year One (This year is not compulsory for students with appropriate qualifications for year two entry)
The preliminary year in engineering aim to improve English language and study skills as well as enhance understanding of mathematics and the physical sciences.
Typical year one modules:
Year two and three provide a good grounding in the broad fundamentals of mechanical engineering science and engineering design. The science subjects studied include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics and electro-mechanical systems. In design, the emphasis is on project work and in both the first and second years, you will undertake a design, make and test project, which you will manufacture in the department's student workshop.
Typical year two modules:
Typical year three modules:
A major individual project makes up a quarter of your studies. This may involve computational and or experimental investigations often related to research activities within the department. You will also study a mix of compulsory and optional modules, the latter allowing you to tailor the course to your interests.
Typical year four modules:
