What is MEng in Mechanical Engineering?Application Fee Waived Badge

Mechanic Engineering is one of the broadest branches of engineering. Mechanical Engineering combines physics and mathematics principles with material science to design, create and maintain mechanical systems. Mechanical Engineers work to solve problems and create solutions for many different fields including Aerospace, Automotive, Health Care, Energy, and many more. From research and development of new products to solving global problems like climate change, every modern device and system you use today need to have the input of a mechanical engineer. Our Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering program will give you the skills to be successful in any of your future industries.

In this top-ranked program, you’ll gain:
  • A pragmatic, practical, non-research degree with no thesis required.
  • The same rigorous engineering coursework with additional non-technology business courses.  This enables you to make a more significant contribution to your business team and/or move into a leadership position.

What Do Mechanical Engineers Do?

Mechanical Engineers use their ideas, knowledge, and creativity to create new technologies or products. Every field can use the help and expertise of a Mechanical Engineer to help solve or fix their problems. Mechanical Engineers design, create and test all forms of machines and tools that are used in every industry.
