Our BEng Mechanical Engineering with Integrated Foundation Course prepares students for a professional discipline that is hugely important in day-to-day life, and supplies solutions to a vast range of sectors. Mechanical engineers design, analyse and manufacture machines that move using gears: from giant earth-moving machines and huge turbines in power stations, to all types of road and rail vehicles, space rockets and satellites. In the medical sector, Mechanical Engineers supply solutions in terms of life-saving equipment, life-enhancing artificial limbs, pacemakers, microscale pumps and incubators. We also make industrial robots; the machines that make other products.
Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) with integrated foundation course at Birmingham Dubai will produce graduates who are creative, highly numerate and skilled at solving problems and delivering results. We are a friendly community of self-assured professionals, determined to guide you to wherever your engineering talents will thrive. All our programmes reflect the strength and longevity of our industrial partnerships.
Designed for international students who require a preparatory year prior to undergraduate study, the BEng Mechanical Engineering foundation course is equivalent in learning to year 13 of the UK education system.
Successful completion of the initial integrated foundation course will also guarantee you progression onto the Mechanical Engineering (Hons) programme. *You will need at at least 100 credits, at least 55% in Academic English and Study Skills and at least 60% in Introductory Mathematics and in Further Mathematics.
We will ensure you're fully prepared for your undergraduate programme, immersing you in the university environment and giving you dedicated support in your first year in Dubai.
First and Second Year
The first two years of this four year Mechanical Engineering course have been designed to provide a contemporary and flexible educational model that builds upon essential engineering fundamentals to develop students’ broader understanding of behaviour, policy, entrepreneurship, and global perspectives and kindles the passion necessary to address the societal challenge agenda.
If you are interested in studying in the UK, you can apply to spend the second year of your four year foundation course in Birmingham. Find out more about spending your second year in the UK.
In the final year these fundamentals of engineering are used to explore advanced engineering topic areas, with a more problem solving based focus, within the context of a broadly based programme of study. In your final year you undertake a major individual project linked to your chosen field of specialisation. You will also undertake a group design study project exploring the associated commercial, legal and safety aspects of developing a new product.
