Manufacturing & Mechanical
Develop a deep understanding of manufacturing processes and mechanical design principles.
Delivered in partnership with WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group), renowned worldwide for its innovative links between academia and industry, our Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering degrees will suit creative problem solvers who want to develop a deep understanding of manufacturing processes and mechanical design principles for a career working with advanced technologies.
A sound underpinning of the basics in science and management is developed in the first four terms, after which students develop state of the art techniques and methodologies that graduates will find directly applicable in industry. 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. In third year, you will be able to apply your skills to an individual project such as rapid prototyping, robot design or processing of novel materials. Those who choose the MEng degree will complete a group project in the fourth year, for example designing and building a human-powered submarine or a robot to rescue victims from a collapsed building.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution, a cyber physical age, will be realised over the next 20 years. As a manufacturing and mechanical engineer, 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 these technical subjects to give you the confidence to innovate and lead in the global economy.

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.
Students can also switch from the three-year BEng to the four-year MEng degree if academic requirements 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.

We are constantly evolving our courses to keep up with developments in engineering and requirements from industry, so it is important that you check this website regularly for the most up-to-date information on module availability.
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.
Exchange year abroad
MEng students may choose to take their third year at a partner university abroad (not to be confused with an intercalated study abroad year, which adds a year to your degree duration).
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 really enjoy the Manufacturing and Mechanical course, which is really applicable to a career in industry, be it engineering-focused or management. There is a really good balance of modules covering a range of design and manufacturing processes, alongside modules on lean and quality, which are important regardless of the industry or career that you choose when you graduate.
