    The mainstream course covers all the fundamental elements of mechanical engineering and design and provides a background in related fields such as computing, electronics, electrical engineering, control, energy and environment. To give you greater commercial insight and awareness, you will also study elements of management, finance and law.

    This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

    About Mechanical Engineering at Brunel

    From jet aircraft to air conditioning plant, from tunnelling machines to body-scanners, from technical consultancy to financial services such as insurance, mechanical engineers deal with the design and production of the machines, systems and structures that are taken for granted in the modern world.

    The range and diversity of career choice is consequently tremendous. In response to this diversity, we offer a variety of courses.

    Interacting with students from different specialisms and with different interests is an important part of the University experience. To help with this, we have introduced a multidisciplinary project for Level 1 students. This is a design-based competition between teams made up of students from a number of subjects.

    We also offer the Engineering with an Integrated Foundation Year course.

    The range of courses reflects several of our research interests:

    • energy and environmental engineering;
    • internal combustion engines and their fuels;
    • structures and materials;
    • fluid mechanics.


    This course aims to produce highly qualified engineers with recognised skills and knowledge who are able to pursue a wide range of careers.

    Emphasis in all courses is on gaining industrial and commercial insight and awareness. Students following either the four-year or five-year sandwich programmes gain a fast track route to chartered engineering status.

    Course Content

    Levels 1 and 2 are common to all mechanical engineering courses and aim to give you a strong grounding in engineering sciences. You will take a module which includes hands-on workshop practice and transferable skills training.
    If you progress to an MEng programme you will, in addition, take Level 4, which represents one further year of study.


    Language options are available in the final year of the MEng. Several levels of ability are catered for in French, German, Spanish and Italian.


    Design is an integrating subject in that it brings together all the academic disciplines in order to solve typical engineering problems. It is project-based, and often involves working in small groups. This work develops not only your engineering ability but also your communication and graphics skills.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
