Mechanical engineering focuses on turning energy into motion and power - any practical device that moves has required a mechanical engineer to design it. The discipline covers the generation, conversion, transmission and use of mechanical and thermal energy, and includes the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. You will acquire skills, knowledge and experience in structural mechanics, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics while developing novel solutions through engineering design and systems and control.
