First Year: The early years are based on the course in Mechanical Engineering, but with coursework assignments specifically relevant to energy applications. Specialisation becomes stronger in the Third Year; which involves an increasing number of energy modules.
Second Year: Subjects covered include: Strength of Materials; Machine Dynamics; Applied Thermodynamics; Fluid Dynamics; Materials Engineering; Design and Manufacture; and Control Engineering and Instrumentation.
Third Year: Subjects covered include: Strength of Materials; Machine Dynamics; Applied Thermodynamics; Fluid Dynamics; Materials Engineering; Design and Manufacture; and Control Engineering and Instrumentation.
Fourth Year: Students choose specialist subjects and carry out an individual project drawn from a range of topics. Taught subjects include Management, Manufacturing and Design assignments, and options from Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Strength of Materials and Machine Dynamics. MEng students may also select from Computer Aided Design, Computing and Numerical Techniques.
Fifth Year: Students may register from First Year:. Entry is offered to those whose performance at the end of the Third Year: places them in the upper part of the class. Students study multi-disciplinary topics in engineering and undertake a group project.
