Electro-Mechanical Engineering BEng
Our Electro-Mechanical Engineering course puts you at the forefront of your field. You will learn to combine computing with mechanical engineering. A skill in high demand with commercial organisations.
You don’t need any prior knowledge to start this course. You will explore the complexities of design and learn to build electro-mechanical systems.
Our teaching staff are respected in their areas of professional expertise. They have developed a curriculum which integrates theory and practice to address industrially relevant problems.
In Year 3 you can build systems for our driverless cars. You can also join or contribute to our award winning Formula Student team.
We encourage you to undertake a placement year. This allows you to gain valuable understanding from real life and to see the context of your studies.
You can choose to gain a Monitored Professional Development Scheme (MPDS), accreditation by IMechE, through a work placement with one of our industry partners.

Please be aware that some courses will involve some additional costs that are not covered by your fees. Specific additional costs for this course, if any, are detailed below.
Learning and assessment
In Year 1 you will learn about electro-mechanical engineering systems and actually make some. You will take analytical modules to;
- support your practical work
- learn the analysis behind complex systems like robots.
In Year 2 you will develop your knowledge from Year 1 and start to design for yourself. You will take further analytical modules to support your design. And you will develop computer simulations of electro-mechanical systems.
In Year 3 you will produce a dissertation on an area you are particularly interested in. You will also have a module on business management, ethics and energy, this is required;
- to gain your IMechE accreditation
- to be well-versed in the ethics of autonomous vehicles.
After you graduate
The expected career destinations for graduates include, programming for electro-mechanical systems, robotics design and manufacture, research and development, technical sales, production engineering, project management.
Graduates of the course are well prepared for further study, either at the MSc level or PhD.
Free language courses
Free language courses are available to full-time undergraduate and postgraduate students on many of our courses, and can be taken as a credit on some courses.
