Bournemouth University Engineering

If you don’t want to go all the way to a full MEng (Hons), you can opt to graduate a year early with a BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering instead. The course itself is designed to give you a solid grounding in all aspects of engineering, and will show you how to understand emerging technologies within the sector and how to apply them to real-world situations. 100% of our final year students agree our staff are good at explaining things – why not come and meet us to find out more?You’ll gain knowledge of the behaviour, performance and limitations of new technologies, in addition to modelling and simulating the performance of technologies. What’s more this course meets the academic standards of Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and Chartered Engineer (CEng) as set by the IED, which means you can apply for IEng (with a BEng) or CEng (with an MEng) status after gaining suitable experience in an engineering role.
