In the latest Government Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) we achieved an impressive 75% of staff rated internationally excellent or world leading.
We also rank highly in the main league tables for mechanically based engineering.
We provide an excellent educational experience in Mechanical Engineering, providing undergraduate degrees and masters courses in the areas of mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, medical engineering, product design and aeronautical and aerospace engineering.
The high standard of our research feeds directly into curriculum design and teaching, ensuring our graduates are equipped with the most up-to-date techniques, methods and knowledge bases.
Our teaching has an excellent reputation and is orientated to the expressed needs of industry. Additionally, our investment in facilities and staff ensures that we can provide an excellent experience in a friendly and supportive environment.
We have long established links with industry and other international organisations, both in the UK and overseas. We also have well-established collaborative links with other schools in the University, and with other academic institutions around the world.
Our vision: By 2015, the School of Mechanical Engineering will be firmly established as one of the top 5 such schools in the UK and internationally recognised for its leading contribution to mechanical engineering based learning and teaching, research and knowledge transfer activities.
