Engineers are involved in a number of design and development activities. Mechanical Systems Engineering is a blend of mechanical engineering, computer-aided engineering, control engineering, systems design engineering and electronic engineering in order to design and manufacture useful products.
This programme, developed in partnership with industry, will produce well-rounded engineers able to exercise leadership, initiative, personal responsibility and decision-making in complex and unpredictable situations. You will have access to cutting edge laboratories and equipment including CAD, CAM and FEA software, as well as to electrical, control systems and instrumentation and electronic laboratories. There is also the opportunity for a 48-week industry placement. The BEng (Hons) degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as fulfilling the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng), with the addition of the MEng year or an accredited Masters degree. Successful completion of the BEng (Hons) degree allows transfer to the MEng.
Graduates work in mechanical engineering, aerospace, electronic, offshore, local authority, manufacturing, and building services. GCU has many links with blue chip companies in the UK and Europe including Thales, BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and many others.
