Course description

Power up your ambitions in the UK’s capital for innovation. The University of Derby is the ideal place for multi-skilled mechanical and manufacturing engineers to set out on their careers.

A powerful portfolio of skills

You will develop vital skills in advanced manufacturing and technologies, engineering science, applied mathematics and management. This degree also builds your understanding of your role in creating a sustainable and ethical engineering environment.

One of the hallmarks of the BEng (Hons) Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering is the flexibility to choose specialist modules. This means that you can tailor your studies to reflect the areas in which you are most interested and which match your career aspirations.

A world leader in engineering

The success of major technology companies like Rolls-Royce means that Derby is the UK's highest-earning city outside London and the South-East, with salaries at two-and-a-half times the national average.

Companies in our city spend millions of pounds each year attracting the best available graduate talent so you could not choose a better place to start your engineering career.

Consider a foundation year

Taking a foundation year first is an ideal choice if you have the potential and ambition to study this BEng programme but lack the formal entry requirements or feel you are not quite ready to embark on a full honours degree right now.

It is also a smart move if you have changed your mind about your career direction since you chose your A-levels or BTECs and need to improve your skills in a different subject area.

The foundation year will cover general concepts in your chosen subject, together with essential skills in areas such as writing reports and giving presentations.
