BENG (Hons) Mechanical Engineering with Foundation Year
With a focus on ensuring your academic progression, the introductory foundation year is designed to provide a broad introduction to engineering and build your understanding of engineering situations and solving problems.
Once you successfully complete and pass the foundation year, you will progress on to our full BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree.
Delivered over three years - or four with a placement year, you will study a suite of modules designed to embed theoretical knowledge, build career-focused skills and help you become a world-class engineer.
During your first and second years of study, you will develop a strong foundation of engineering knowledge and an approach to problem-solving. In your final year, you will progress to study specialist modules in industrial management, control engineering and finite element analysis. You will also complete experiments and project work, culminating in your individual project.
Mechanical Engineering degree courses at Salford are designed to equip you with technical knowledge and transferable skills, and a commitment to the highest professional standards. This course is designed to meet the requirements of the Engineering Council's Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP).
Collaboration is core to our values, so we strive to embed this throughout your studies. You will experience group projects that will build your confidence and capabilities in team working, problem-solving and communication - all desirable skills for real-world engineering careers.
The course team has long-standing connections with industry, both in the North West and beyond. You will benefit stimulating range of external guest lecturers, project and placement opportunities, and engagement with professional networks.
On the full BEng course, you will have the option to take an industry placement year between years two and three. Although you will be responsible for securing your placement, our tutors will support you in finding a role, and monitor your progress throughout.
Industry placements are an excellent way to enhance your CV, gain hands-on work experience and build industry connections. We often find that placement students achieve higher final year grades.
