Links with Industry

Members of staff work closely with a range of industries through knowledge transfer projects, consultancy and strategic research, which informs the practical problems used in our teaching.

Within Wales we have close interaction with large companies such as Tata Steel and Ford, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Across the UK there is or has been recent work with companies such as Astra-Zeneca, British Aerospace, Qinetiq, GKN and Rolls-Royce whilst further afield there is close working with companies such as SKF (Netherlands), Freeport (USA), One Steel (Australia), Barrick Gold (USA) to name a few.

Careers

The modules on the MSc Mechanical Engineering course are of high industrial relevance and the benefits to employability are immediate in a wide range of industries.

Facilities

Mechanical Engineering at Swansea University has extensive laboratory and computing facilities for both teaching and research purposes.

In the mechanical laboratories are two large rotating rigs. One is used to study the dynamics of high speed machinery whilst the other is devoted to the analysis of heat transfer in turbine blade.

Accreditation

The MSc Mechanical Engineering course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

The MSc Mechanical Engineering degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng(Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree.

Research

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.

The REF assesses the quality of research in the UK Higher Education sector, assuring us of the standards we strive for.

World-Leading Research

The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.

Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.

Student Quotes

“Every single day at the College of Engineering has been a learning process for me. The MSc in Mechanical Engineering involves leading world class professors, tutors and academics with whom we were lucky to be associated with. There is also a great peer group too.

I would like to pursue a PhD from Swansea University and become an entrepreneur. The College of Engineering has helped immensely with these ambitions.”
