Join one of the most highly-skilled workforces in the UK by studying a mechanical or manufacturing engineering degree in Derby.

With world-leading engineering companies like Rolls-Royce, Toyota, Bombardier and JCB on our doorstep, you’ll be studying at the heart of the engineering industry. 

You’ll benefit from the strong relationships we have developed with these companies and the relevant professional bodies. Commercial partners set live projects, which will give you fantastic hands-on experience alongside your studies. 

I like the fact that I was able to study such a range of modules during my first two years.

“Also, being on this course enabled me to take part in extra-curricular projects, such as Formula Student and the Shell Eco Marathon. I’m also close to outside groups in Derby, such as a Rolls-Royce Heritage Centre, where I volunteered during my first and second year. This enabled me to develop more practical and theory-based skills that I wouldn’t have learned on my course. In this way, it combines the best of both worlds to give me a greater range of knowledge.”
