The 4th 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 offer you a rich curriculum and resources to achieve this, being accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. You'll gain 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.

As this degree is delivered in partnership with Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG), renowned worldwide for its innovative links between academia and industry, you'll learn from cutting-edge research in areas including automation systems and digital lifecycle management. You can 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, boosting your employability.

We also offer a MEng degree that enables you to explore specialist areas of Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering through fourth-year core and optional module choices and a group project.

We offer flexible degree programmes that enable you to experience a range of different 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, students continue to study the same core modules as all other students until the end of term one, after which they can specialise, or continue on the general Engineering pathway.

You can also switch between the three-year BEng and four-year MEng degrees if academic requirements are met.

We use a variety of teaching methods, ranging from lectures and group tutorials to small-group teaching in laboratories. You will participate in lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical laboratory sessions.

To help you make the transition from school to university, in your first year you will meet your personal tutor each week in a group usually of five or six students to address academic issues arising from lectures. Your tutor is there to support you throughout your university life and will especially help you to reflect upon your continuing development.

Engineers are always involved in interdisciplinary group work and this forms part of our courses from year one.

Contact hours

Timetables will vary from week to week. In the first two terms of first and second year, students typically receive around 13 contact hours (of lectures, seminars and tutorials) per week in addition to between 2 and 12 hours of laboratory sessions. Your final year will be more project heavy, and contact hours will reduce.

Class size

Class sizes for lectures, practical laboratory sessions and seminars vary depending on the number of students taking the module.

Assessment is through examinations and coursework. Coursework assessment can include laboratory reports, projects, essays and oral presentations.

1st year: 0%; 2nd year 30%, 3rd year 70%.

There are options to take an intercalated study abroad year (typically between the second and third, or third and fourth, years).

Our Placements and Internships Officer supports students to identify opportunities for year-long and/or summer internships and research opportunities, which often lead to further study and employment for our students.

Options to take an intercalated year in industry, research or study abroad are reflected in your degree title, and add a year to your degree duration.

 Student blogs

nathan"Every year, the Engineering Society organises two conferences, one for Energy and one for Technology. The Energy theme this year was the Energy Trilemma – balancing the competing demands of energy security, energy affordability and energy sustainability... we have speakers, breakout sessions, food, and a drinks reception."

Additional costs

The School provides computer laboratories loaded with specialist software. These are open 24/7, helping you undertake work at a time that suits you. Students are therefore not required to purchase a computer. However those who choose to buy a computer may wish to bear in mind that a Microsoft Windows Operating System is recommended for full access to engineering software.
