Accreditations and Memberships
This programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). This enables students completing the programme the eventual opportunity to register as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) following further study. Further Master's level accredited learning is required to complete the educational base for full CEng status.
Our academic team brings together a rich array of research experience, including staff with specialisms in diagnostics and prognostics, renewables, modelling of dynamic systems, nanomaterials, and applications of lasers. They secure grants for major UK and European research funders and deliver research, development, and consultancy for industrial partners, as well as being part of international research collaborations. Students have the opportunity to engage in this research through research-led teaching and project work.
The School of Engineering’s award-winning collaboration with industry delivers numerous benefits for students, including a number of internship opportunities at Siemens Energy. This collaboration has won a prestigious Lord Stafford Award and a Times Higher Education Award.
A sandwich option is available on the programme, providing students with the opportunity to spend a year in industry. Students are encouraged to obtain placements in industry independently. Tutors may provide support and advice to students who require it during this process. Students undertaking placements are responsible for their own travel, living, and accommodation costs.
