Dr Mike Wilson

I would like to welcome all new students to the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

Well done on your recent exam achievements; I wish you continued academic success during your time with us!

Your first few weeks at University are an important time, both academically and socially, and we have a busy induction programme planned for you. It is really important to attend the department induction events as you will be given important information to help you during your first semester and you will meet key people in the department.

Before you arrive

If you are planning some reading over the summer, I would suggest you try An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering, Parts 1 and 2, by M. Clifford, published by Hodder Education. This textbook is relevant to all first year units. However, this is by no means compulsory.

A full Year 1 and  Year 2 reading list is also available.

You will receive an email to confirm that you are able to register online at the beginning of September. Once you have registered online, please check your University of Bath email account for updates and information. You can do this through webmail via the University website. You can also follow us on Facebook.

We look forward to meeting you in September.

Dr Mike Wilson
Director of Undergraduate Studies
