Develop a core knowledge of systems engineering across both mechanical and electrical engineering to boost your career prospects in industry.
Our course gives you a unique chance to balance an understanding of mechanical, electrical and electronic engineering sciences with a focus on systems engineering. You’ll develop a comprehensive knowledge of mechanics, materials, electrical and electronic systems and circuits. And you’ll explore the theory and practice of modern mechanical and electrical technologies.
Being able to apply what you’ve learnt is an important part of your study at Bath. You’ll use theory in coordinated projects and laboratory work where you’ll design and develop products and systems.
Group and individual projects are a chance to explore creative approaches to engineering problems. You could design and build robotics, medical devices or sports and games equipment. You’ll also develop valuable skills to add to your technical and scientific knowledge. The teamwork, problem solving and management experience you gain will prepare you for working in professional environments.
Studying an MEng degree gives you a more in-depth study experience through advanced taught units and semester-long individual and group project work. And it meets the educational requirements you need to become a Chartered Engineer. You also have the flexibility on our course to decide whether to go on placement up until the end of your second year. This gives you professional experience during your degree and also contributes to becoming a Chartered Engineer.
You’ll learn from academics with expertise in mechanical and electrical engineering across a wide range of areas. These include biomechanics, tomography, automotive engineering, and advanced sensors. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.
You’ll have access to facilities specially equipped for the application of electrical and mechanical engineering. Our facilities are designed to be similar to industrial work spaces so you gain an insight into what it is like to work in a professional environment. These include laboratories for electric vehicles, robotics and autonomous systems design, rapid prototyping and a mechanical workshop.
We work with industrial partners to make sure our course content reflects the needs of engineering industries. When you graduate, you'll have the interdisciplinary skills needed across a wide range of engineering professions. You could go on to pursue successful careers in high-technology industries including electronics, power, automotive, robotics, aerospace or manufacturing. Some of our graduates continue their studies with us or at other universities for a career in academia or research.
