Welcome to Mechanical Engineering

Engineering offers global career opportunities and fantastic salaries for the brightest and best. Since Engineering has always been at the heart of the University of Bolton, you can be assured of high-quality teaching and excellent facilities.

Dedicated Engineering Laboratories

You will have access to modern, dedicated engineering laboratories and the University’s state-of-the-art design development and project facilities.

Industry Standard

The design and project areas are equipped with industry-standard engineering design, analysis and manufacturing software, including SolidWorks, Ansys, Delcam and other visualisation and prototyping capabilities.

Engineering Disciplines

The course brings together a broad range of engineering design and analysis disciplines and emphasises the application of engineering principles to real-life engineering problems and situations.

Friendly and Supportive

Staff are approachable, friendly and supportive and you will be taught in modern teaching rooms, with small class sizes. Teaching staff are highly qualified within their fields and have substantial teaching and industrial experience.

Internationally Recognised Lecturers

Many have established an excellent reputation for their work both nationally and internationally and are engaged in research relevant to their discipline; for example, in composite materials and artificial intelligence.

Live Projects

Your final year project allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding when investigating and providing solutions to engineering problems. Some projects may be on ‘live’ problems from local industry or in-house research activity.
