Mechanical Engineering/Sustainable Energy Systems Meng (Hon)

Course Overview - Mechanical Engineering/Sustainable Energy Systems Meng (Hon)

This integrated masters degree explores sustainable energy technologies such as wind turbines, solar cells, batteries and fuel cells, combined with a holistic view of societal aspects of energy, its distribution and use. The first two years are the same across our Mechanical Engineering degrees and focus on the essential principles of mechanical engineering, as well as law and management, systems design, and modelling and computing, in order to take a product from initial concept to the marketplace.

During your third and fourth years you will study the behaviour of fluids,...

A*AA including mathematics (minimum grade A) and physics (minimum grade A), with a pass in the physics Practical (where it is separately endorsed). If you are taking an EPQ in addition to 3 A levels, you will receive the following offer in addition to the standard A level offer: AAA including mathematics and physics, with a pass in the physics Practical (where it is separately endorsed) plus grade A in the EPQ. We are committed to ensuring that all applicants with the potential to succeed, regardless of their background, are encouraged to apply to study with us. The additional information gained through contextual data allows us to recognise an applicant's potential to succeed in the context of their background and experience. Applicants who are highlighted in this way will be made an offer which is lower than the typical offer for that programme. Applicants who have not studied the required subjects at A-level can apply for the Engineering/Physics/Mathematics Foundation Year.
