Where you'll study

Hull Campus

About the course

Mechanical Engineering is the largest and most popular area of engineering among students and has a long, successful history at Hull. This course has strong links with industry and is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), meeting the educational requirements towards Chartered Engineer status. Hull was rated among the top three northern universities for student satisfaction with mechanical engineering courses in the Complete University Guide 2015. During your studies you will gain a broad base of knowledge, along with innovative problem-solving skills, which can be applied to a range of mechanical engineering-related industries.

Combine this with the opportunity to boost your employability by spending your penultimate year either applying the theory learned in previous years to real life projects on industrial placement, or by studying at one of our partner institutions in Europe, Asia, North America or Australia. The option of a Masters year is available for those who aspire to the highest level and wish to study at a more advanced level. A Foundation year is ideal if you do not have the qualifications and experience to enter the degree course directly.

Hull has a genuine multidisciplinary engineering capability within the school, where skills across the various branches are taught by industry professionals and practising engineers, most of whom are Chartered Engineers.

Entry requirements

Foundation Year entry requirements:

  • The foundation year is designed for applicants whose qualifications and experience do not allow direct entry to the undergraduate degree.
  • We expect applicants to demonstrate an experience of a related subject and an aptitude for academic work which may be determined by an essay and/or interview alongside the application.
  • For applicants with A levels in subjects other than those key to the degree, we will usually require a minimum of 80 points from Level 3 qualifications.

Future prospects

Due to a national shortage of engineers and technologists, our graduates enjoy excellent career prospects with many securing challenging and rewarding positions in the UK, throughout Europe and in the USA.

The skills you learn from studying engineering – your mathematical abilities, problem-solving skills, ability to understand innovative concepts and experience of working in teams gained through group projects – are in high demand across all areas of engineering, and this is reflected in the significant pay rises of Chartered Engineers that continue to outstrip the cost of living.

Your career prospects are enhanced by our close collaboration with industry to ensure our course meets the requirements of potential employers. This is evidenced in the types of jobs our graduates go on to; many work as science, engineering or technology professionals with organisations such as BAE Systems, Jaguar, Land Rover, British Energy, The Royal Navy, Williams F1 and Rolls Royce.

Engineering graduates are also prominent within senior management positions. The Engineering Council's recent survey revealed that an increasing number of chairmen, chief executives and managing directors are professional engineers.

Research is another career avenue for our graduates. Many students have also stayed on for higher degrees both at Masters and PhD level.
