    Description

    In recent times, the UK automotive industry has invested heavily in CAD and new test facilities. This, coupled with the shift towards automated manufacture, is leading to the adoption of new materials technology. This course will introduce you to these developments and to the field of automotive design as a whole.

    All students on the sandwich course receive a Certificate of Recognition of Industrial Training.

    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 parallel courses, three of which give emphasis in the latter part of the course to a particular specialism.

    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.

    Aims

    This course will prepare you to meet the challenge of creating new and improved vehicle systems. You will gain a good grasp of mechanical engineering principles and an understanding of the new materials being used.

    Course Content

    Levels 1 and 2 are common to all mechanical engineering degrees 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.

    Languages

    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

    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.

    Typical Modules

    Level 1

    • Fundamentals of Solid Body Mechanics
    • Fundamentals of Thermofluids
    • Analytical Methods and Skills
    • Engineering Materials, Manufacturing and Electrical Machines
    • Introduction to Engineering Design
    • Mechanical Laboratories, Technical Drawing and Workshop Experience

    Level 2

    • Solid Body Mechanics
    • Thermofluids
    • Computing, Analytical Methods, Control and Instrumentation
    • Professional Engineering Applications and Practice
    • Design and Analysis of Mechanical Systems and Components

    Level 3

    • Major Individual Project
    • Fundamentals and Applications of Numerical Modelling
    • Business and the Environment
    • Analysis of Vehicle Structures
    • Vehicle Aerodynamics and Internal Combustion Engines

    Level 4 (MEng only)

    • Major Group Project
    • Strategic Management and Enterprise
    • Research Methodology and Innovation
    • Advanced Modelling and Design
    • Advanced Thermofluids
    • Advanced Solid Body Mechanics

    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.
