Manufacturing and Mechanical
Develop a deep understanding of manufacturing processes and mechanical design principles.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, a cyber physical age, will be realised over the next 20 years. This course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to be at the forefront of these exciting developments and is delivered in partnership with WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group), renowned worldwide for its innovative links between academia and industry.
All Engineering students at Warwick develop an in-depth understanding of the classical principles of engineering by following a general engineering programme for the first four terms. Thereafter, those specialising in Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering will learn and develop state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies that graduates will find directly applicable in industry.
You'll master modern technologies and skills such as robotics, computer-aided design and simulation. We'll offer you a rich curriculum and resources to achieve this, and will give you a significant understanding of management techniques and skills alongside those technical subjects to give you the confidence to innovate and lead in a globally sustainable economy. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in industrial visits and receive input from firms such as Jaguar Land Rover, encouraging you to apply your knowledge to real-world challenges and boost your employability.
After graduation you'll typically find employment within advanced industries as diverse as aerospace, consumer goods, electronics and pharmaceuticals, as well as the more traditional light- and heavy- engineering sectors.

If you aspire to achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status, a degree from Warwick is a great starting point. The majority of our degrees are accredited by licensed professional engineering institutions, such as the IET, IMechE and JBM and provide the academic component (in part or fully) needed for Chartered Engineer status.
Entry requirements are published on the University website:
Come and see for yourself what Warwick is all about! Our University Open Days give you the chance to visit the School of Engineering, see the facilities, meet staff and students, tour the campus and get a real feel for life at Warwick. If you apply to study at Warwick and are subsequently made an offer, you may also be invited to an Offer Holder Open Day.
We offer flexible degree programmes that enable you to experience a range of engineering disciplines before you decide to specialise.
All first year students study a general engineering programme, which is much favoured by industry. In the second year, you continue to study the same core modules as all other students until the end of term one, after you which you can specialise in Manufacturing & Mechanical Engineering, choose another specialism or continue on the general engineering pathway.
Students can also switch from the three-year BEng to the four-year MEng degree if academic requirements and regulations are met, and from the MEng to the BEng if they prefer to graduate earlier.
In your first year you will be taught the fundamentals of engineering, which you will build on in later years according to your interests.

Our course and module content is continually reviewed and updated to reflect the latest research expertise at Warwick, so it is therefore very important that you check this website for the latest information before you apply and when you accept an offer.
Students may choose to spend a year in industry, research or study abroad between years two and three, or between year three and four for MEng. If you choose to take an intercalated year, this will be reflected in your degree title, and add a year to your degree programme.
Exchange year abroad
MEng students may choose to take their third year at a partner university abroad, subject to academic requirements and approval of study programme.
MEng students who take their third year abroad as an Exchange Year, and do not complete an individual project, will be required to do so as a core module during their MEng (fourth) year at Warwick.
Please see the University website for details of tuition fees, financial support and the cost of living.
The School of Engineering is privileged to attract high fliers and seeks to recognise and promote achievement, talent, ideas, hard work and diversity. We regularly offer a number of scholarships.
After graduation you’ll typically find employment within advanced industries as diverse as aerospace, consumer goods, electronics and pharmaceuticals, as well as the more traditional light- and heavy- engineering sectors.
I chose Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering because it covers a large range of technical knowledge and considers how engineers ensure quality, reliable and efficient manufacturing processes are implemented and maintained.
I've enjoyed applying my knowledge directly to practical projects - building a flat pack go-kart was particularly fun!
