The first two years of our BEng 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.
Like all UAE Ministry of Education Higher Education Institutions, we also run the below listed compulsory modules. These modules are designed to support talented graduates in the region, with the skills to aid and further employability.
- Entrepreneurship, Innovation, and Sustainability (EIS)
- Arabic Language 1
Please note these modules must be completed and passed, in addition to your core programme modules, during the course of your degree. Find out more about EIS and Arabic modules.
You will be based in the UK at our Edgbaston campus in years 3 and 4.
In Years 3 and 4, you will develop your specialisation further, with an increased problem-solving-based focus. You continue with Mechanical Design where you undertake project work and have the opportunity to attend lectures from companies such as Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover to gain an insight into industrial design projects.
In year 4 you are given options to pursue your personal engineering interests providing the opportunity to develop deep understanding and competence in their chosen specialism. Strong links are formed with our research programmes, through the range of options available, to ensure that you benefit from developments at the leading edge of your chosen field. You will be given the opportunity to choose from options listed below.
Many projects are defined by industry and Formula Student team members can also undertake projects based on the racing car. The project gives you the chance to use your own initiative and apply the skills and knowledge learnt during your degree programme.
