City University London

Course Introduction

The accredited Mechanical Engineering courses are designed to train students to work in the transport, energy, materials and manufacturing industries, including the aerospace and automotive industries. While Aeronautical, Automotive and Energy Engineering courses at City educate for careers in specific industries, the Mechanical Engineering degrees provides broad training in the important disciplines spanning all sectors of mechanical engineering. Mechanical Engineers can also work in the aircraft, automotive and energy industries. City has been delivering well'qualified, motivated graduates into the mechanical and aeronautical sectors for over 100 years. Our courses are accredited and have received commendations on the balance between theory and practice to give graduates the best preparation for their careers. The strengths of the Mechanical Engineering courses are our laboratory and workshop facilities, used for teaching and research, our teaching staff, who have spent many years working in or are closely connected with industry and our commitment to a solid grounding in engineering design. Students on all Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering courses may choose to complete an industrial placement year after the second or third academic year. Placement students gain a greater understanding of the industry and this may count towards the experience requirement for a professional engineering qualification.
