Integrated mechanical and electrical engineering

Undergraduate courses starting in 2018

Combines the core elements of both engineering sciences. Learn about the design and manufacture of electrical and mechanical devices, technologies and systems.

Mechanical and electrical engineering are behind many of the modern technologies we use. They support the infrastructure of our lives: transport, energy, communication.

To advance these technologies, industries need more from their engineers than expertise in one discipline. They want graduates who understand how to combine mechanical and electrical engineering to tackle complex problems.

Our course brings together these two subjects to give you the multidisciplinary skills you’ll need in the real world of engineering. We regularly review our courses with input from industry to make sure that we give you a study experience informed by modern industrial practice. We also include an optional placement year on all our courses so you can gain professional experience during your degree.

When you graduate, you’ll have the integrated knowledge to make a valuable contribution to a range of industries. You could be developing the next electric car, designing unmanned air vehicles for humanitarian aid, or finding ways to make sustainable energies more efficient.
