Harper Adams University campus (and location of work placement)*
Mechanical Engineers apply core principles and advanced simulation tools to take ideas and concepts through to economical, sustainable and fit for purpose solutions. These challenges may be to improve healthcare, create inclusive and sustainable products or even develop the next generation of transportation.
Our Mechanical Engineering students analyse a wide range of problems using fundamental engineering principles to develop systems that are not only theoretically proven but practically applied and tested. You will learn in dedicated engineering facilities which are at the heart of our small rural campus, which offers many opportunities to apply your engineering skills to areas such as food production. agriculture and business. Assessment typically includes industry projects, use of simulation tools, creating and exhibiting new products, investigative portfolios and technical interview.
From day one you will develop your problem-solving skills and produce practical solutions to real and difficult problems as an individual and as part of a team. You will be encouraged to enter external challenges to open your eyes to how others work together and develop your understanding of global issues. Supported by an integrated placement year in industry, you will be primed for your future career using personal, technical and professional skills employers have identified with us as critical to your graduate employability in roles such as production specialist, advanced research engineer, environmental engineer, structural analyst.
Graduates from the BEng (Hons) Programme will be highly capable of reliably managing and delivering solutions to complex engineering problems. MEng graduates, in addition to having developed a greater range and depth of knowledge at the forefront of the industry, will also have demonstrated the ability to identify improvement opportunities and to lead on the creation and dissemination of innovative solutions to complex problems.
This is one of a series of Harper Adams undergraduate courses undergoing a curriculum refresh to ensure they provide the best content and experience for students and deliver excellent graduates into industry.
