Design, develop and test complex mechanical systems and turn ideas into products. You’ll learn how to generate concept ideas and turn them into viable solutions, gaining experience of 3D modelling and analysis tools that will help you factor in considerations including materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance.
As a Mechanical Engineer you’ll be the one who turns ideas into products. You’ll be involved in the design, development and testing of the complex mechanical systems.
In the early stages of a project, you’ll apply scientific principles and technical information to generate concept ideas. After this you will select the most suitable design and turn it into a viable solution.
Through 3D modelling and a range of analysis tools, you’ll create a detailed design of the product that factors into considerations such as materials, manufacture, assembly, cost and performance to name just a few.
Our military and commercial programmes require us to push our capabilities and technologies to the limit of what is achievable today. This raises many innovations for the system as it must ultimately meet our customers’ stringent safety requirements and bring leading edge performance to give substantial advantage wherever applied.
As a minimum requirement you’ll need to have obtained, or be predicted to obtain, a 2.2 in your Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.
