Mechanical Design Engineering

Why Mechanical Design Engineering?

Mechanical Engineering has one of the broadest impacts on human activity - through work, leisure, health and education, mechanical engineering plays an intrinsic role in technological advancement and manufacturing.

The mechanical engineering degree at the University of Glasgow will equip you with the wide range of skills required at present, and in the future, to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving workplace. Mechanical Design Engineering at the University of Glasgow places an emphasis on industrial design and manufacture; focusing more on design rather than analysis.

Students on both the Mechanical Engineering and Mechanical Design Engineering degree programmes have the same courses for the first two years, so you can choose your preference as you enter third year where the two degree courses diverge.

Project work plays a key role in all engineering courses; in this courses the project work in the MEng course is a longer-term project than standard Mechanical Engineering. See the project page for more details.

Mechanical Design Engineering at the University of Glasgow is aimed to target students who wish to develop their skills and knowledge with the aim of entering exciting mechanical design industries (e.g., automotive, defence industries) or postgraduate research in a design role - graduating with this degree gives you the skills to turn ideas into solutions at the forefront of technological development.
