This programme specialises in mechanical engineering and becoming proficient in designing anything that has background moving parts to allow it to work such as engines, motor driven devices and the effects of nature on mechanical objects and their ability to perform. You look at how material composition can alter performance issues and provide new innovative methods to solve challenges in every day life, natural and other risks to machinery in all situations.  Your employment options are very varied, you may want to work within consumer goods to design and improve everyday objects like white goods, or you may be involved in very large scale hydro electric and power driving machinery in energy plants , manufacturing or large scale developments. Alternatively your ability, aptitude and skills may lend themselves to becoming an innovator and starting your own enterprise.

Have you ever wanted to invent something mechanical, prevent environmental damage to a building from floods, fire, explosions, landslides and other natural disasters, understand risks and reliability across buildings, renewables, and other areas?

Do you want to improve quality of life across environmental remediation, farming, smart grid, green technology, food production, housing, transportation, safety, security, healthcare and water? Do you find it fascinating to try to make things work from what you have available?

There will be plenty of major challenges to get involved with in the coming years as mechanical engineering crosses into nano technologies, advanced materials, electronic printing, grapheme technologies, wearable's, 3d printing, renewables and recycling and biotechnologies. Technology now means that you can design and engineer from anywhere in the world, including your home. Advanced Mechanical Engineering looks at computational mechanics, response to materials and reliability engineering. The Victorians set up some of the most advanced mechanical engineering of our times and in many ways they were the biggest mechanical engineering innovators ever.
